  1. Caroline B

    5 out of 5 “Awesome experience”

    As promised we were greeted at the airport and transferred on a private car to the hotel. The hotels selected by Tanzania Expedition were clean, comfortable and well maintained. Our Safari driver Emmanuel was the best. Great sense of humor, and very knowledgeable about the area , the animals, the floral . Thanks to him we were able to see hundreds of species including the big five. Ask for him !!! Than our real expedition began with Justin and his crew on our way to conquer Kilimanjaro. I cannot say enough compliments about Justin and his crew. They are simply amazing , how they do this week after week it’s just incredible. They made sure we were safe at all times and most importantly encouraged us all the way to the top. It was an awesome experience

Private Vehicles: No mixed groups, no competing for views with strangers, and no conflicting interests. With Tanzania Expeditions, you will enjoy the exclusive use of a private vehicle providing for maximum flexibility, comfort and wildlife viewing.

Sunrise Safaris: We offer early morning (before sunrise) game drives to witness the predators in action and also the herbivores in more active states. We’ll pack a picnic breakfast to enjoy in the pristine ambience of the bush while the package tours are having their ‘buffet’ meals back at the lodge or campsites.

Unlimited Game Drives: Each safari offers unlimited game drives with no mileage restrictions and exclusive access to the most secluded and wildlife abundant areas in Tanzania. Most other companies operate shorter, limited game drives and never end up making it far from the lodge – or the other tourists.

Tanzania Specialists: We have chosen to specialize in Tanzania, which makes us experts in the local wildlife and regions, and allows us to create a special and unique experience for our clients (as opposed to other “generalist” companies offering standard tours to many different African countries).
