Tanzania Northern Circuit

Do you want to climb Mt Kilimanjaro? Do you  dream of seeing the endless plains of the  Serengeti or to feel the breeze of eternity  while standing on the rim of the famous  Ngorongoro Crater? We propose this most classic safari  destination to everyone who is a newcomer  to Africa. Arusha, Tarangire and Manyara  National Parks are within easy reach from  Arusha, as well as many other less know  natural highlights. 

Tanzania Southern Circuit

For those who are looking for the more  remote and less visited regions of Tanzania,  like Selous Game Reserve, Ruaha, Mikumi or  Katavi National Parks, we love to set up a fly  in safari from Daressalam or Arusha.  In the Southwest of this huge country there  are some rarely visited gems. Whether you  want to see chimpanzees in Mahale or  Gombe, thousands of hippos in the rivers of  Katavi or just the orchids of Kitulo, rest  assured that you will be exposed to an  unforgettable experience.


Explore the stunning beauty of this country,  from the sands of the Kalahari to the fresh  waters of the Okavango Delta. Encounter  thousands of elephants along the mighty  Chobe River and huge herds of buffalo in the  Linyanti swamps. Take a scenic flight over  the vast landscape to visit the Bushman rock  paintings at Tsodilo Hills.  Botswana offers the traveler a wide choice of accommodation options from top class  hotels, luxury lodges and safari camps, to  budget guesthouses and camping grounds. We prefer a good mix of different  accommodation types for a fascinating  safari. 


From the stunning Victoria Falls to the  swamps of Lake Bangweulu, Zambia is the  country for those who want a holiday full of  activities: Bungee jumping, kayaking, flights  over Victoria Falls, river boarding, lion walks  or white water rafting.   Here you have a large number of wild places  for guided safaris, birding safaris, canoeing  safaris or fishing trips. 


Zimbabwe has a lot to offer for those who  are looking for unspoiled wild places,  including our favorite Hwange National Park  (now part of the Kavango-Zambezi  Transfrontier Conservation Area). This Park  hosts over 100 mammal and 400 bird species,  including eight large carnivores. It is the only  protected area where gemsbok and brown  hyena occur in reasonable numbers. We also love to visit and admire the  Zimbabwe side of Victoria Falls, a visit which  may be easily combined with a trip to the  Zambian part of the falls. 


Namibia is a land of stark contrasts, where  towering dunes meet a tempestuous  coastline. As it should be in a land of such  contrasts, Namibia offers an endless variety  of safari options.  We include in our itineraries the world  famous Etosha National Park, Namib-Naukluft  Park and of course the hauntingly quiet  Kalahari Desert. In case of a safari for birders  we’ll not leave out the Caprivi region which  harbors more than 430 species. Namibia is  best traveled in a camping safari.
