A combination of luxury safaris in Tanzania and beach holidays on one of its islands is possibly one of the best travel ideas you can have, as Tanzania has a richly diverse landscape and more than a quarter of its area is protected as reserves and is committed to developing tourism sustainably.

Why travel to Tanzania

East Africa at its finest, safari and beach holidays in Tanzania are remarkable. Imagine yourself sitting on a high kopje at sunset watching thousands of migrating wildebeest march across the vast Serengeti plain below you – it is one of life’s most exhilarating moments.
Tanzania’s variety means that this is a country where we take special pride in our expertise, knowing that the advice of an insider will make all the difference between the merely good and the exceptional. Our Destination Experts will match you to the right camps, lodges and guides, and get you to the Tanzania’s hidden corners, away from the usual tourist track. As well as the Serengeti and the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, we can also open up the lesser-travelled, but equally inspiring south of the country.

For some post-safari relaxation, Tanzania’s islands offer pristine beaches and barefoot-luxury lodges. From the ever-popular Zanzibar to a new selection of private island retreats, we can ensure you end your bespoke African safari in style.

What our clients say

We returned to London this morning after what can only be described as a holiday of a lifetime. We wanted to thank you, once again, for organising everything so completely beautifully. Every place we visited seemed to become more magical - ending up in Lamai, which truly is out of this world and felt like stepping in to a scene from Out of Africa.

What our clients say

I was looking through my Tanzanian photos again tonight and realise I hadn’t thanked you. How rude as you are the reason we had the holiday of a life time. It was simply amazing. Your personal expertise counted for a great deal. You are a star.
