Private Guiding

Whether you want to go on safari with a group of friends, with your family, or you have been on safari many times and you want something more; a private guide is an essential compliment to your safari. Perhaps you are keen wildlife photographers looking for that insider knowledge. Looking to get off the beaten track? A genuine conservation and community experience? 

A privately guided safari is designed and led by the same person. Your guide will tailor make your safari to perfectly suit your expectations, and then be there with you every step of the way. Your private guide will make sure everything runs smoothly and take your safari experience to the next level. We use private vehicles, private camps and charter flights to ensure absolute flexibility and exclusivity. We have a network of private guides, select camps and specialised operators to execute very special safaris in Tanzania and across Africa. 

These journeys will go well beyond a typical safari.
