Our indigenous guides. We hold the conviction that the most joyful guides craft the most indelible safari experiences. At Sarafika Tours, we exclusively collaborate with local guides who possess not only knowledge but also a genuine passion for their craft. We firmly believe that a competent guide ensures a good safari, yet an exceptional guide transforms it into an unforgettable journey.

Each of our guides demonstrates exceptional dedication, consistently going above and beyond to ensure you feel completely at ease. Proficient in wildlife spotting and possessing an intimate familiarity with the parks, their expertise is a source of pride for us.

Our choice of safari vehicles epitomizes excellence. Utilizing the latest 4×4 Toyota Landcruisers, these vehicles are adept at conquering the most challenging terrains. Boasting expansive windows and a pop-up roof for a panoramic 360° view, each vehicle is equipped with amenities such as electricity ports for camera and phone charging, a fridge stocked with refreshing beverages, two-way radio communication, plush seats, binoculars, animal books, and more. This guarantees a comfortable journey wherever you go. Additionally, we offer unlimited game-mileage, allowing you the freedom to drive as far and as long as your heart desires!

The significance of a reliable vehicle: Tanzania’s terrain is rugged, characterized by off-road trails that can swiftly transition from sandy paths to deep mud puddles. In light of this, we recognize the critical importance of a well-maintained car. Before each journey, our vehicles undergo thorough servicing to ensure they are in impeccable condition. We firmly believe that a dependable vehicle is pivotal, constituting half the battle. By meticulously maintaining our fleet, we significantly minimize the risk of breakdowns that could potentially disrupt and delay your safari experience.

A private, tailor-made safari is simply the best way to experience Tanzania.

Every safari we offer is completely tailor-made. This signifies that we provide personalized travel experiences down to the minutest details. Each day and every accommodation can be customized to align with the specific needs and interests of your group. Whether you prefer the pinnacle of luxury or seek a raw, local experience, anything is possible with our tailor-made approach.

Embarking on a private safari grants you absolute control over your itinerary. Your dedicated safari guide accompanies you wherever you desire. Whether you wish to dedicate an entire day to seeking out that elusive leopard or prefer to unwind by the pool while observing elephants at the waterhole, the choice is entirely yours!

Collaborating closely with your dedicated Tanzania specialist, you craft your ideal safari experience, one-on-one. By merging your preferences and wishes with our in-depth knowledge of Tanzania, we strive to fashion the perfect holiday tailored to your unique desires.

Sustainable Tourism in Tanzania

As travelers, our goal is to maximize the enjoyment of our holidays while being mindful of the environmental impact our journeys may have. Consequently, we make concerted efforts to minimize our environmental footprint.
