Why Tanzania?

Tanzania is, quite simply, the ultimate safari destination. With its record of thoughtful planning, having set aside fully one-third of its land for the purpose of conservation, it's no wonder the country boasts the highest concentration of wildlife in the world, including the largest populations of big cats and untamed herds of hoofed animals. 

Your Tanzania Safari Includes:

Tanzanian-born professional safari guides who are your companions, your teachers, and at your service throughout the trip :: Comfortable wildlife viewing in specially equipped 4WD Land Rover Defenders with pop-up roofs and customized, convenient battery charging outlets. Each traveler is guaranteed a window seat. :: Meals and bottled water, as listed in the itinerary, accommodations based on double occupancy, and park fees :: Services at Thomson Safaris Nyumbas and lodges :: Daily safari briefing to help you prepare for each day's wildlife viewing :: Internal flight from Arusha to Wasso :: Bush lunch :: Village/cultural visits :: And much more!
