Always by your side: Our experienced local guides who not only ensure your safety but are your window to a whole new world.

North Serengeti balloon safari Tanzania

Balloon Safaris

Balloon safaris in Tanzania are an experience you will remember for the rest of your life. Rising gently in the twilight to see the sun rise over Tanzania is absolutely magical. Journey silently above the savannahs with the wildlife in action below. After every flight, tradition states that this shared experience will be celebrated with a champagne toast. After bubbles in the bush, you will be driven to the shade of a giant tree to enjoy a delicious breakfast. This is a once-in-a-lifetime moment that can be shared as a couple, family, or group of up to 16 people.

Serengeti wildebeest migration safari

Migration Safaris

One of the most incredible animal migrations on the planet occurs in Tanzania. During the wildebeest migration, ~1.5 million animals travel clockwise through Tanzania and Kenya in search of fresh grass. The annual migration is at its best from June to October. A migration safari lets you witness this spectacle firsthand in the Serengeti National Park, particularly at the river crossing where giant crocodiles lie in wait. Then, having crossed into Kenya, you follow their journey in the Masai Mara National Reserve. Another highlight is the wildebeest calving season from January to February. Witness the migration, with newborns in tow, in the Southern Serengeti. As a bonus, there are fewer visitors in the park.

Birding Safaris

Tanzania is a paradise for birding safaris. The varied regions, climates, and ecosystems combine to create diverse habitats for hundreds of resident and migratory species. It is also the border between two sets of fauna and flora. Excitingly, you can enjoy your experience without going far.  You will be struck by the birdsong as soon as you touch down. On a bird watching safari, you will be accompanied by another bird lover – your guide. Together, seek out the birds and animals you love by tailoring the safari to your preferences.

Kilimanjaro Climbs

To reach the summit of Africa’s highest mountain is a dream for many. The good thing: you do not need to be an experienced mountaineer to achieve this goal. However, being physically fit with a solid ambition to reach the top is essential for Kilimanjaro trekking tours. In the company of our highly experienced team, ascend Mount Kilimanjaro during a multi-day adventure. A private trek allows you to select your preferred dates. Alternatively, you can join a small group on a scheduled mountain trek. In both cases, you can choose which route to tackle during this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Mt Meru climbing

Mt Meru Climbs

To trek Mount Meru, Africa’s fifth-highest mountain, is a true African adventure. You will likely see giraffes, buffaloes, baboons, colobus monkeys and antelope. However, a park ranger will keep you safe as they accompany you on this volcanic mountain trek. Compared to Mount Kilimanjaro, the benefit of trekking Mount Meru is that there are fewer visitors. Plus, it only takes four days to reach the top and get safely back down again. Although sections of this trail are more technical than those of Mount Kilimanjaro, it is still a good trek for all abilities.
