Safari in Tanzania
A safari is a journey in Kiswahili the language of East Africa. Your journey starts with Wildlife Oasis Tours and Safaris. When you join us on safari you will be received at the airport, taken to your booked accommodation or we can arrange for a briefing before you are taken to your hotel. You will be transported in a well-maintained, clean Land cruiser 4×4 safari vehicle, driven by a professional local guide in areas that will leave you breathless. You will search for the ‘Big Five’ – buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhino – and will be amazed by the sheer beauty of grass-covered savannas, extinct volcanoes and rare birds. You will see animals, landscapes and different species of birds and you will meet the local people and taste local food.
Let’s give you an overview of different safari styles we offer in Tanzania. We can combine any of these safari styles in a tailor-made safari to suit your preferences and we can also suggest you further.
Travelling in a 4×4 safari vehicle with a pop-up roof is the classic safari style. Our vehicles fit a maximum of 7 guests, each is guaranteed a window seat. These vehicles are fitted with seatbelts for each passenger, a fridge with water and a plug point for charging cell phones, cameras and wifi (but mostly due to network problems in the bush sometimes the wifi connection speed varies).
To access remote areas such as the game parks in South Tanzania you can opt for a fly-in safari. This saves time and reduces travel time driving on rough roads. Board an airplane on a fly-in safari to the parks of northern or southern Tanzania or if you prefer to travel in style and comfort.
A walking safari will let you get up close and personal with nature and its animals. You will be accompanied by an armed ranger who will show you tracking techniques and teach you about the fauna and flora of his country.
Lodge safaris offers accommodation in lodges and permanent tented camps with solid flooring. Luxury safaris include specially selected four to five-star lodgings where you will have a bedroom, good beds with linen and an en-suite bathroom. Lodge safaris are available as group tours with scheduled departure dates or as private trips. Mobile toilets and bush showers are provided.
Adventure Camping safaris are perfect for adventurers. You will overnight in public campsites within the national parks or on campsites outside the parks but close to the entrance. Guests sleep in 2-man tents on comfortable sleeping mats. A safari cook will prepare delicious food, served on the camp site.
Adventure Camping safaris are great for nature lovers with a limited budget, families and the young-at-heart. These safaris are available as group tours with scheduled departure dates or as private trips departing on guests’ selected dates.
