Short Wildlife Safaris FAQs

Best Time For A Short Safari

All year round. We highly recommend doing the short safari in April & May because it’s the low season hence lower hotel rates (we can upgrade you to more luxurious accommodations with no price increase), less vehicle traffic in the parks and an abundance of animals.

Shopping for Souvenirs

There will be plenty of opportunities to buy souvenirs while on safari. There are many Curio Shops along the way to the major parks where you can get a wide range of items ranging from wooden carvings, local paintings, jewellery, local arts & crafts to gemstones such as Tanzanite.

Vehicles & Driver Guides

While on safari you will have a driver-guide with you throughout. Our driver-guides are well educated and trained in the field of Wildlife & Tour Guiding. With a wealth of experience in conducting safaris in various parks in Tanzania, our knowledgeable and charming guides are sure to provide you with the ideal safari experience you deserve. We operate a well-maintained fleet of open-roof Toyota 4X4 Land Cruisers customized for safaris. All our vehicles are equipped with ICOM radios. These radios are commonly used for communication between driver-guides for up to date locations of animals and wildlife reports in the area. Given the rough nature of the park roads while on safari, flat tires are fairly common while on game drives. Tire changes are handled fairly quickly by our driver-guides with little inconvenience. Vehicle break-downs are extremely rare as our vehicles are rigorously maintained. However, in the unusual event of a vehicle breakdown, a replacement vehicle would be immediately sent over to your location so that you can proceed with your safari as planned.

Weather & Terrain

The weather conditions vary while on Safari. Mornings and evenings are generally cooler but it can get quite hot during the day. You should expect hot, dry afternoons while on safari. Roads in the National Parks are all dirt/gravel road hence they tend to be dusty during the dry season and muddy during the wet season.

What to Wear

It is always advisable to pack lightly for your safari. You will be spending most of your time in the safari vehicles. It is generally hot and dusty during the day so light clothing is recommended. Sunhats, sunglasses and sun cream are also recommended. It can get quite cold during the early mornings and evenings so it is advised to bring some warm clothing like a sweater or jacket.

Wild Animals & Safety

Wild animal attacks are extremely rare and we have never had such an incident but it is always important to remember that you will be travelling through the wilderness hence it is of utmost importance to abide by the rules and regulations of the parks and accommodation facilities you will be staying so as to ensure your safety. Always listen to your driver-guides advice and instructions as far as wild animals are concerned. While travelling with small children please make sure you do not let them out of your site or wander alone. In some private tented camps, it is important to have an escort with you when moving in and out of your tent at night.
