For those who skipped the introduction. We work with first class exclusive small lodges/camps and OPEN JEEPS for safari with experienced LOCAL guides. This will make a huge difference for your safari versus minibus and guide from a big city. You will see so much more wildlife as these guides are in that wildlife area every day and know the habits of the animals. But also the bush experience and wildlife experience from an open jeep is so much more intense! To experience a lion’s vibrato without windows in between, or the bark of a baboon when it spots a predator…To smell the bush and enjoy the breeze in the shadow of the roof of an open jeep is so much more enjoyable and less hot on game drive! its also much easier to make good pictures from an open jeep. At sunset whilst enjoying nature and game drive sundowners in the bush…or afterwards at a log fire before diner enjoying a magical starry African sky!
Because the roads often are in bad condition and the distances vast, we often offer fly in safari, where you fly from small airstrip to airstrip in the bush. Not only will you save a lot of time on travel but its so much more relaxed. You make a beautiful flight over thee bush (often not more than an hour), your jeep awaits you at the airstrip and you make your first game drive to the lodge/camp, or if you wish we can pick you with a packed lunch and you go for a longer game drive upon arrival and a bush lunch! So much more enjoyable than a long drive on bad roads to arrive ‘shaken and stirred’ at the end the day. We can gladly also arrange ground transfers but they are not necessarily cheaper as a scheduled flight as the driver needs to overnight for his drive back, But mostly the advantage of going with a local guide is huge as you will see so much more!
When planning a visit to the first thing that usually comes to mind is a visit to the famous Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater. Despite the fact that the Serengeti is a frequented place by tourists, Africa Private Safaris can still provide it's clients with places in the bush where you can fully enjoy the Serengeti undisturbed in all it's beauty. In the Ngorongoro Crater it is not quite possible to avoid seeing other jeeps, as the craters concerns a relatively small area that attracts a fair amount of tourists. From your exclusive lodge at the edge of the crater you can enjoy a stunning view into the Ngorongoro Crater! We recommend clients to combine a visit to a more secluded part of Tanzania, where you can truly enjoy the serenity, the sounds and the rare beauty of the African bush! Like Ruaha for instance. Africa Private Safaris can offer your several impressive possibilities, which we will gladly discuss with you. If you like to spend a few days of relaxation and be spoiled with excellent seafood, the pearly white beaches on the African East Coast are a perfect way to end your safari!
Everything is arranged into the smallest detail. All you need to to on location, is enjoy nature, relax and tell your guide/manager how you like to spent your day and they will arrange. Unusually you go on morning and late afternoon game drive and you spent the warm hours around noon in the lodge for lunch and relaxation. however full day game drives are also possible on many locations, where you go with packed lunch. It is nice to relax in the lodge when it gets hot, but its can also be rewarding to go out over the hottest time of the day to see species that will usually only hunt during the hottest hours- like for instance the cheetah.
Family units are available in most lodges and camps, but bare in mind that Tanzania is more strict with kids as Kenya and some locations have a minimum age for certain activities that can be 6 or 12. We can advise you what activities work for what age and regarding length of safari- and make sure there is enough variety on activities etc. Fishing, mountain biking, quad biking, camel safari’, swimming (in natural wells) a day out with Maasai warriors. Tanzania has amazing beaches and private islands or Zanzibar and from your safari location there are good options for direct flights from the bush straight to a small airstrip on the coast or Zanzibar and Mnemba Ras Kutani on main land is also a stunning beach location. for more information kindly contact us:
