For a full safari package in Tanzania; first we include your airport transfers in a private vehicle. Both arrival and departure. This is you can however plan to arrange by yourself if you want but it doesn’t make it cheaper if you plan to arrange that yourself because we do not charge any extra cost on the airport transfer in your package. So it’s is even better if you arrange that with us.

Likewise applies to your accommodation in Arusha. We just get our commissions from the lodge or hotel that you stay in so booking with us will be more convenient. You will pay the same price if you book by yourself. You may in fact get a better price with us because we have some very nice Contract Rates with most Hotels and lodges in Tanzania.

Mostly the cost of Tanzania safari is determined by the accommodation that you use while on safari. We have budget, mid-range, standard-luxury accommodation, and of course the up market lodges and tented camps. Most Safari lodges and tented camps work on full board (3 meals included) and a few have all inclusive services.
