Whether you are making changes to the itinerary of an existing package, or designing a completely bespoke tour,

tailor-made applies to any tour that falls outside of our ready-made packages.


We know that everyone has different motivations and expectations for their safari experience in Tanzania. Although we offer safari packages to meet the needs of most, one size definitely doesn't fit all - that's where our tailor-made tours come in.

When arranging your tailor-made tour we will start by finding out what is important to you, and the goals of your safari experience. We will then work with you to decide the best and most practical way to achieve these, using our many years of experience in Tanzania's National Parks. We will do our very best to meet all your requirements, or suggest the closest alternative if necessary.

Please note that it is not possible to join a group for tailor-made tours due to the bespoke nature.


Here are some things you may want to think about when designing your tailor-made itinerary:

What is important to you about your safari?

Of course we want every part of your safari to be perfect - but what one aspect is most important to you? Everyone has different needs and expectations, and so we want to know how we can make your safari experience outstanding.

- Maybe you have always wanted to see elephants in the wild - we can plan your itinerary to maximise your time seeing them.

- Maybe your impact on the environment is important to you - we can select a fuel-efficient route, minimise the waste we produce and select accommodation that shares your values

- Maybe you want to reduce stress as much as possible - we can arrange all aspects of your safari trip including airport transfers and accommodation in Arusha.

Let us know what will make your safari perfect for you and we will work with you to make this possible.

Do you know what time of year you are planning to travel?

Seasonal changes affect the parks and the animal's movements - if your itinerary is based around a particular species, such as the Wildebeest migration, you might want to bear this in mind. We are happy to advise you on the best time of year to travel.

What type of accomodation would you like to stay in?

Choose from camping, tented lodge, lodge, or a combination. We book campsites and tented lodges/lodges that we have worked with for many years and meet our standards for quality. However, if you have a particular preference for the place you would like to stay (maybe you have heard a recommendation or found somewhere online), let us know and we can make arrangements.

Do you have a budget for your safari?

You may already have a set amount in mind but if you need an idea of how much to budget you can look at the prices of our Safari Tours - just remember prices do vary based on the number of people traveling and accommodation choices. You don't need to let us know your budget, but it can be helpful in determining the best itinerary choices to suit your needs.

Which National Parks would you like to visit?

Most people have heard of at least the Serengeti, but do you know which other parks are available to visit, and what they have to offer? Our Parks page will let you know about each of the parks available to visit, the animals and habitat, and their main attractions. We are also more than happy to advise you on which parks to include in your itinerary based on what is important to you, your budget, and the time of year you are traveling.

Is this a special trip?

Maybe you are celebrating an occasion - a special birthday or an anniversary. Let us know and we can help you to make the trip extra special, for example, arranging for a cake to be made or liaising with lodges for complimentary extras. We're good at keeping a secret if you're surprising a loved one!

Are you arranging your honeymoon? We can help you to arrange a romantic itinerary perfect for newlyweds!

Are you planning a special proposal? We can help you plan the perfect surprise from start to finish - from taking you to a reputable Tanzanite vendor in Arusha to choose a ring and identifying the perfect time and location to pop the question.
