We offer several safari experiences from Arusha town including a visit to Arusha National Park, Lake Manyara National Park and Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park. We specialize in experiential travel programs that ensure guests have an opportunity to experience the true essence of an authentic Tanzanian safari. Aside from game drives, we recommend additional unique activities including canoeing, hiking, cycling down the great rift valley and cultural interactions with the local Masai tribespeople.
