Tanzania – of proud lions and high mountains
When you let your gaze wander across the golden savannah towards the endless horizon only disrupted by elegant giraffes dotting the scene – that’s when you know, you’re in Tanzania. From the plains of the Serengeti to the slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater and the elephant herds of Ruaha National Park, Tanzania will make you feel lost for words. See large herds of animals not only during the Great Migration. Climb to Kilimanjaro’s Uhuru Peak, the Roof of Africa. Breathe the fresh air of the Indian Ocean on Zanzibar. Live East Africa in Tanzania.
What to expect when travelling Tanzania
Types of Travel in Tanzania
Whether you want to go on safari or climb the highest mountain in Africa – we’re always by your side. From the planning stages to the actual trip, we got you. Once you reach the romantic tropical beaches, we’ll make ourselves scarce, no third-wheeling.
Live lavishly at one of Tanzania’s luxurious lodges or reconnect with nature at a small and intimate tented camp. You can enjoy genuine hospitality on a small group safari or together with your friends and family only. On all guided lodge safaris, our experienced guides share their local knowledge with you so you can see beyond picture-perfect sunsets. The twinkling stars in the sky, a drink in your hand and nothing but calm and peace on your mind.
Share your campsite with elephants on our guided camping safaris around Tanzania. Only the canvas of your tent will separate you from the wildlife’s nightly goings-on once the campfire fades away. Travel back to basics on Adventure Camping safaris or camp in style and on private campsites on Mobile Explorer Camping safaris. Whichever you chose, together with your guide and in our Land Cruisers, you experience an authentic safari. The proper way.
All you need to do is put one foot in front of the other – and don’t stop. Climb Mt Kilimanjaro or Mt Meru alongside our experienced mountain crews and take a break from the rest of the world above the clouds. Thousands of metres above sea level, the air is thin, and you need a partner to fall back on. Equipment, provisions and medical back-up will not be on your mind, but on ours. We not only get you to the top but safely back down again.
Waking up to the sound of waves splashing against shore and nothing but pleasures to fill your long island day – that’s the good life you live on Zanzibar and Pemba islands. Snorkel, dive, paddle or don’t move even your small toe. Whether you relax on Zanzibar or its lesser-known companion Pemba, it’s shoes off, mind off and sunglasses on. To understand that every place in the sun has a dark side, visit Stone Town and learn about its troubled history and hopeful future.
From the first email inquiry to the last goodbye, every detail was perfect. To Tuma our guide and now our friend, I thank you for taking such wonderful care of our family, and for broadening our knowledge of Tanzania. My 5yr old daughter can’t wait to return. PERFECT.- Steven Pontifex | Bahrain

"His knowledge of all things safari, country and region was excellent. For three full days Lazaro was always available to answer questions and help us get anything we needed. He was extremely patient while we spent long periods of time taking pictures. His animal spotting skills were top notch as well. Lazaro was certainly one of the best guides I’ve had on any tour, my wife claims he is THE best."
Lazaro PallangyoEXPERT IN TANZANIA
Lazaro’s career in guiding began in 2007 and he joined our team in 2012. He is our group whisperer, turning strangers into friends on our scheduled group safaris. To him the secret for great group dynamics lies in finding out about everyone’s personal expectations and wishes on what to experience on safari; then making sure everyone in the group has the safari they always wanted. Lazaro enjoys the long conversations at the dinner table, learning about different cultures and lifestyles and sharing his love for his country Tanzania with you. On game drives, he not only looks for his favourite animal, the rhino, as part of the Big Five, but also the members of the Little Five. And these, he wants you to know, are in fact more difficult to spot than their big and well-known counterparts. Lazaro speaks English, German, and Swahili.
"Our Guide Daniel was absolutely brilliant, both for his knowledge, spotting and general personality, it must have been quite a daunting task, looking after 8 of us for 5 days! It all went to make our trip perfect. He, particularly, deserves much praise."
Daniel MbiseEXPERT IN TANZANIA
Daniel has been with Tanzania-Experience since the very early days. His calm and engaging character, wealth of experience, and commitment to delivering a great service have made him a favourite amongst our guests since 2008. Daniel lives on the foot slopes of Mt Meru and close to Arusha National Park, where wildlife is ample, and the vegetation is lush. As a safari guide and nature lover, Daniel is happiest, when in nature. Having completed his wildlife studies and mechanics courses, he knows that you can learn a lot from reading books, but nature will teach you something new every day. He regularly meets with other safari guides to discuss new developments in the fields of conservation and safari. When you return home, Daniel hopes you will have become an ambassador of Tanzania’s natural beauty, sharing it with everyone you meet.
"A HUGE thankyou to Enock our Guide and Godwin our Cook who were fantastic and honestly two of the nicest individuals I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting and spending time with."
Enock NnkoEXPERT IN TANZANIA
Enock started his career in the hospitality and service industry. Working at a lodge in southern Tanzania, he saw guests embarking on game drives day after day and got curious about their adventures out in the bush. Determined and eager as he is, he changed career tracks and qualified as safari guide in 2009. His many years’ experience in the bush combined with his sense of quality service make him an invaluable member of our team since 2013. Even after many years on the job, Enock strives to deepen his knowledge and values continuous education and training – as only a smart guide is a good guide. Over the past years he discovered a new passion: photography. When you’re out and about with Enock, you can be sure to return with stunning photos as he knows how to position you to get the perfect shot.
Enock speaks English, and Swahili.
"Tumaini Mano – safari guide, great person, subject matter expert, excellent driver and best DJ (thanks for on demand Jambo song and Kenny Rodgers)."
Tumaini ManoEXPERT IN TANZANIA
Growing up close to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area Tumaini spent his childhood weekends on game drives in the Crater and camping with his parents and siblings. After graduating from the renowned College of African Wildlife Management, Mweka, in Moshi, he joined our team in 2013. Father of a young son, he plans on taking him on safaris once he’s a little older. Tumaini enjoys going on safari with families, being amazed by the children’s genuine curiosity and intelligent questions about nature and wildlife. Believing in lifelong-learning, he keeps up to date with conservation developments, researching in books, online or talking shop with rangers in the national parks.
Tumaini speaks English, and Swahili.
"Batchi was incredible, he set the pace for us and was our leader. He was very knowledgeable and informative. He made sure we knew what each stage involved and briefed us every night. On the last night up to the summit these amazing men sang as we trekked in the dark and it really helped us to stay focused and determined to succeed."
Batchi DonatiEXPERT IN TANZANIA
Mountain Guide / Head Guide
Batchi is one of our most experienced mountain guides and has been part of our team since day one in 2007. As Head Guide, he leads big groups to the top of Kilimanjaro, making sure that not only all climbers are safe and enjoying their experience, but also coordinating the many crew members it takes to lead a bigger group to the Roof of Africa. He is a professional and responsible role model for other guides, always giving his very best. Studying Tourism at the Bridge Institute of Business Studies in Arusha has equipped him with important expert knowledge. When the climbing gets tough, Batchi reminds you that conquering Kilimanjaro is not a competition. It is just you and the mountain. Take it slowly, one step at a time.
Batchi has climbed Mt Kilimanjaro more than 200 times.
Brighton MwigubaliEXPERT IN TANZANIA
Mountain Guide / Head Guide
Brighton is a proud ambassador of Kilimanjaro and his home country Tanzania. On the long hikes climbing Kili, he will happily share his expert knowledge and entertaining anecdotes to lighten your stride. Starting out as porter, Brighton knew right away he wanted to climb the career ladder and become a guide. He went to study at the Udzungwa Mountains College in Moshi and joined Tanzania-Experience as guide in 2011. He remembers how strenuous and challenging he experienced his first climb up Kili many years ago. Today, he is an excellent mountaineer, but hasn’t forgotten the challenges a mountain-novice may encounter. You can expect empathy and encouragement from a man who knows what it feels like to conquer the highest mountain in Africa.
