Private Tanzania safari holidays

Tailor-made holidays and safaris in Tanzania

Imagine standing on an African escarpment with your loved one, overlooking vast plains. The setting sun paints the rippling clouds a beautiful shade of orange. A gentle breeze drifts over the grasslands as you sip your favourite ‘sundowner’ beverage.

That morning, you boarded a small aircraft to fly into the park you’ve longed to visit. After settling into an amazing accommodation, you embarked on a private game drive to witness world-class wildlife up close. Tomorrow, your adult children will join you, fresh from trekking Mount Meru, to enjoy a safari together. Your adventure concludes by relaxing on the beaches of Zanzibar. This is one way to celebrate a significant event, like a wedding anniversary.

Designing your dream safari in Tanzania has never been easier with our team of experienced and service-oriented travel experts. We take pride in meticulously handling every detail to create a tailor-made experience to suit you. The possibilities are seemingly endless.

Watch a herd of elephants quench their thirst on a boat safari in Nyerere National Park/Selous. Enjoy a delicious champagne bush breakfast in the Ruaha National Park, having just experienced a magical balloon safari. Look in the eyes of our closest living relative, the chimpanzee, during a trek in Gombe Stream National Park. Immerse into nature in remote Katavi National Park. Unwind on the stunning beaches of Lake Tanganyika in the secluded paradise of Mahale Mountains National Park.

As we live and work in Tanzania, we can easily organise almost any tailor-made holiday. Contact our country experts to make your dream safari a reality. We’ll assist you from inquiry to your departure home.

What to expect on a tailor-made safari in Tanzania?

Tailor-made safaris provide an exciting chance for travellers to veer from the usual path by creating a unique and personalised itinerary.

  • If you love birds, Tarangire National Park is perfect, as it is home to around ~550 species. After that, head to Lake Natron, where you can witness breeding flamingos. To wrap up your bird-watching adventure, fly to Mahale Mountains National Park. There, you can observe aquatic and tropical forest birds while relaxing on the beaches of Lake Tanganyika.
  • If you’re passionate about African wildlife, consider Mikumi National Park. You can visit the Black Rhino sanctuary at this park and see rare Wild Dogs running free with views of Mount Kilimanjaro in the background. After that, fly into the remote Katavi National Park to see some of the best wildlife sightings in the world. To wrap up your adventure, snorkel with Whale Sharks off the coast of Zanzibar.
  • If you’re interested in exploring Tanzania on foot, a one-day Shira Plateau hike to Mount Kilimanjaro’s lowest peak is a picturesque way to start your trip. Then, travel to the Ngorongoro Highlands to start a beautiful three-to-five-day walk to Lake Natron. After all that hiking, relax in Saadani National Park with a morning game drive and a gentle afternoon walk along the tropical beaches.
  • If you want to travel as a family with older children or as a group of friends, but you have different interests, that is no problem. We can organise a Spice Tour for foodies and Scuba Diving for the adventurous. Or a trek to Sanje Waterfall in the Udzungwa Mountains National Park and assemble for an ultimate safari at the Ruaha National Park.
  • If you dream of the perfect honeymoon safari, stay in a remote lodge with bedroom views of the riverbanks. In the morning, you can set off on a hot air balloon safari over the Serengeti National Park to watch the sunrise. Then, pass the day together by relaxing in a pool with panoramic views. Enjoy a romantic bush dinner for two at night with the starry sky above.

When you arrive in Tanzania, one of our exceptional guides will be waiting with a customised 4×4 Toyota Land Cruiser to take you safely on your safari.
