So what does it take to excel as a safari guide? First comes safety, especially on walking safaris, which require a cool head, a respect for dangerous game and a thorough knowledge of animal behaviour. A good safari guide can read situations understanding animal behaviour, react in an instant and avoid putting his clients in harm’s way. Secondly comes the ability to read and interpret the natural world, who can read animal tracks as others peruse a newspaper, put a name to every bird call and be an inspirational source of knowledge on everything living above and below the ground.

Exploring Arusha City
#3. You’ll have peace of mind
Eliminate all the daunting elements of visiting a foreign country. Forget stressing about whether the hotel, lodge or camp you have chosen will live up to expectations and leave the aggravations of sticking to a complex itinerary to someone else. With a private guide, there’s no need to worry about flight times, transfers and getting to the airstrip on time as everything will be taken care of. Meaning that you are free to absorb all that you see and appreciate the nuances you may otherwise miss. Your safety is also our top priority and we are here to ensure that your stay in Africa will be nothing but one incredible adventure; right through from arrival to departure.
#4. There’ll be continuity throughout
Avoid hearing the same stories or information being repeated from different guides along the way. Having a private guide allows you to learn more from the different areas you have visited, and links various sightings from previous destinations. This way you receive the most out of your trip, ensuring there is continuity throughout.
#5. You’re promised the best a destination has to offer
To truly get to know a country, you need to meet its people, eat its food and experience its culture. Our private guides will enable you to do just that. They are able to recommend the finest wines, dishes to sample, best photo opportunities and local activities you simply have to experience. With all of these reasons, the only question you need to ask yourself is, why have you not had a private guide before?
TOP THNGS/DAY TRIPS TO DO IN ARUSHA
Arusha Na. Park - Day Trip
The most accessible national park in Tanzania, Arusha National Park is just a short (1 hour) drive from Arusha proper. While the park is not home to any big cats or larger mammals, it is an ideal place to spot buffalo, zebras, warthogs, and a variety of primates.
Manyara/Tarangire Day Trips
Located between 1.5 and 2.5 hours from Arusha, the twin parks of Lake Manyara and Tarangire offer the more quintessential safari experience. Home to four of the Big Five (rhinos being the notable exception), both parks are a terrific place to spot lions etc.
Ngorongoro Day Trips
While the Ngorongoro Conservation Area lies approximately four hours' drive from Arusha, it is possible for a particularly ambitious traveler to make the trip in a single day. While we don't usually advise this due to the rushed itinerary, it's a great way to see Ngorongoro Crater
Marangu Village Tour
Located in the Kilimanjaro foothills, the sleepy village of Marangu offers a fascinating window into modern Tanzanian life. A day tour to Marangu includes visits to a local coffee plantation, a chance to sample locally brewed banana beer, a tour of the Chaga tunnels, and a walk to a gorgeous local waterfall.
Majimoto Hot Spring
Maji moto means 'hot water' in Swahili, but you'll find the crystal clear waters of this natural hot spring to be quite pleasant.A bumpy two-hour drive from Arusha, Maji Moto is a perfect place to take a dip, layout in the sun, and enjoy a local lunch purchased from the vendors on-site.
Arusha City Walking Tour
Have a day in Arusha town? There is still plenty to see in Tanzania's safari capital.A half-day or full-day walking tour of Arusha includes visits to local markets, a chance to dine in a local restaurant, and the guidance of a guide with a fantastic knowledge of the city's past and present. Enjoy your Stay in Arusha
Best Safari Tours from Arusha
A northern Tanzania safari should be on everyone’s travel bucket list. The Serengeti National Park’s Great Migration is one of the most amazing wildlife spectacles in the world, whilst safari on the Ngorongoro Crater floor of the extinct volcano at Ngorongoro is a game viewing environment that has no equal.
Towering above it all is Kilimanjaro, the worlds highest freestanding mountain and arguably Africa’s toughest challenge. Away from the tourist hotspots, quieter parks such as Tarangire National Park offers superb for game viewing yet often overlooked to their more famous neighbours. The Rift Valley Lakes of Eyasi and Natron are the home of Hadzabe tribes and the breeding grounds for the largest flocks of flamingo on earth. For many people, a Northern Tanzanian safari is the very best safari of all.
Tanzania’s northern safari circuit is the most celebrated safari area in Africa. Home to the world-famous Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater, and the lesser known parks of Lake Manyara and Tarangire, the sheer concentration of Africa’s big game in this area is phenomenal.
Most itineraries to this region are designed around the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater, with the Serengeti’s Wildebeest Migration and immense predator concentrations as the main attraction, not to mention the Ngorongoro’s big five experience. The area is also home to a variety of different cultures including the Maasai and the Hadzabe, as well as being one of the most scenically striking and diverse parts of the continent.
