authentic Tanzania safaris

The wild African plains spark a sense of wonder and adventure – and for good reason. Nowhere else in the world can you see giraffes striding across the savannah, surrounded by thousands of grazing wildebeest and flat-topped acacia trees, while lions peer hungrily through the tall grass. Wild yet serene, the snow-capped peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro scrapes the sky as the Maasai people march their cattle in a colorful display. This is no cinematic scene, it is our home, and we invite you to it.

I have recently returned from a safari tour with Sassabi Expeditions and it’s safe to say it was the experience of a lifetime.I am a serious birder and wildlife enthusiast. We toured Serengeti, Ngorongoro conservation area and Tarangire all of which had birds and mammals which were off the chart. I travelled with an old friend who is also a birder and equally enthusiastic about wildlife. He has much more experience of sub-Saharan Africa and agrees that our experience was spectacular. Wildlife encounters are often down to chance but the skill and expertise of Joseph, our driver and wildlife guide, along with Modi, our bird guide, knew the right places to go to ensure we got as much out of the safari as possible.Sassabi provided an amazing experience from start to finish. We were well looked after by Jessica during the planning from the UK and also on location when we arrived in Arusha, as well as on our return to the city. Joseph and Modi made our experience so enjoyable by being super keen and accommodating to our birding needs, which differ from mammal watching but also by being great company for our long days in the jeep.5 star rating....highly recommended. I hope to be able to return in the not too distant future. Thanks Sassabi!

I had an unforgettable 2 days safari in Tarangire National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. Not only could we watch animals from a very close distance, but we also have been provided with many interesting and specific information about their habitats, behavior, food and many more. The service provided to us by Sassabi Expeditions was excellent. Everything was organized perfectly. The warm meal for lunch that has been served to us in the wilderness was a daily highlight as well. Customer service provided to us by our driver guide Erasto was exceptional. Also, the accommodation that was selected for us has been comfortable with the service of high standard.All in all my two safari days have been extraordinary and I will never forget.I highly recommend Sassabi Expeditions tours.

Unforgettable Serengeti Safari with Sassabi ExpeditionsSassabi Expeditions provided us with a perfectly organized and according to our expectations performed safari in Northern Tanzania. Our tour had been adapted to our individual shedule - all this is possible with Sassabi Expeditions, just contact and ask them. We went there in October to enjoy the Great Migration in the Northern part of Serengeti National Park and the world famous Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Please don't forget to plan your safari according to the season - go only to various areas at the specific seasons when animals are there. Don't go for cheap offers to see gras an savannah only. The visit of the Ngorongoro Crater is a unforgettable experience you should not miss while visiting Tanzania. Amazing to stand in one of the world's largest calderas, long ago having been a volcanoe similar in height of Mt. Kilimanjaro, another highlight in Northern Tanzania, and mountain climbing you can easily organized through Sassabi Expeditions. To visist a traditional Maasai village I really recommend not to miss. You will get a impression of the traditional culture of these indigenous people in Tanzania. My warmest thanks to Sassabi Expeditons and all the staff involved in our safari, very professional service. No questions remained unanswered by our knowledgeable guide Erasto, he could explain all the animals, big and small, the environment and stunning nature in Northern Tanzania, like printed in a book not stopping to talk. Last but not least I highly recommend Sassabi Expeditions because of their support to local commuities, a share of each tour will support the ones who need most. Thank you so much. Ashe naleng.
