Standard Tours

You can choose one of our standard tours, based on number of days/nights. These popular itineraries optimise your game viewing experience. You can choose the type of accommodation you would like, either Lodge/guest house or camping.

Please note if you are visiting Serengeti we recommend a minimum two nights, to avoid rushing, and allowing time to explore the Park.

Personalized

If you have your own ideas for your tour we can help you plan your itinerary, maximising the use of your time and budget. This option also allows for a more varied experience, exclusive to your needs.

Joining a Group

This is an option which can help reduce your costs. It is popular with younger people and those travelling alone. It is a good way to make new friends. Decisions affecting the group must be made jointly, but this option can be socially rewarding. Please be aware that it is not always possible to guarantee finding people to join with.

What is included?

Which ever option you choose your tour is inclusive of: all park fees, accommodation, transport and transfers, 3 meals per day and mineral water.

Not included:

Flights, items of a personal nature, alcohol and beverages, additional excursions (unless agreed prior to departure) tips for driver/guide and cook ( where appropriate).

Tipping

It is generally customary in Tanzania to tip your driver/guide and cook if you are satisfied with the service provided. Please remember to factor in this payment when considering your budget.

Safety

At the beginning of your tour you will receive a copy of ‘Rules of the wild’ which you will be asked to read and sign. Your safety is of paramount importance to us and it is important that you understand the wild environment you are visiting.

Safari vehicles

We use Toyota land cruisers for safaris, they are equipped with pop up roofs to give unrestricted viewing of wildlife. They also have electrical charging facilities and radio communication.

Staff

All your safari staff are experienced and knowledgeable, they are also committed to providing you with excellent service.

Payment

Payment of all or part of the cost can be made by bank transfer prior to your arrival, or if you prefer you can bring cash with you. Visa and Mastercard can be used to pay for Serengeti Park fees and some hotels and lodges. ATMs will dispense smaller amounts in local currency. Travellers cheques are rarely used these days.
During peak season some hotels and lodges require booking well in advance so a deposit may be required.
