Authentic Tanzania

We specialise in taking your guests to the last of the raw and empty wildernesses in southern Tanzania.They will find the Africa they dream of on winter nights at home. An Africa that is disappearing fast, where the trails aren’t congested with vehicles and where you often don’t see another soul in the parks.

Our team will design personalised adventures through the south and west of Tanzania, staying in the most remote and private areas of the parks where wildlife is abundant. Trekking with chimpanzees, walking along trails that no human has journeyed before, swimming in hot springs, and sleeping under the stars listening only to sounds of the bush.




We believe in comfortable camping. We set up unpretentious, yet totally private safari camps; with each location hand selected right in the heart of the parks to ensure excellent wildlife encounters.

The safari camps are truly mobile. There are no built structures whatsoever so when they are moved there is no trace of them ever having been there as the bush takes hold once again.
