The word "safari" is Kiswahili and means "a journey", or "to travel". 'Safari' conjures the image of the adventurous traveler in search of big game in the African wilderness. Your safari can be anything you'd like- a wildlife viewing experience, a chance to meet and get to know people with dramatically different traditions and lifestyles, or a camping and walking adventure in a country that is still wild and unspoiled.

As a custom safari company, Tanganyika Film & Safari Outfitters provides you with a distinct view into Tanzania's people, wildlife, geography and history. By choosing us, you have the luxury of setting your own agenda (with our help) and not having to adhere to the inflexible timetables that larger companies often require you to adhere to. A safari with us can be whatever you want it to be. Whether you opt for the luxurious or want to rough it, all of our trips are adventurous, educational and, most importantly, safe. We offer you private and exclusive experiences, providing memories that will forever imprint your mind.

Most of our trips include a combination of the excursions described below and include destinations within the various reserves and parks. We work with you to maximize your Tanzania experience by balancing the activities and the areas you visit.

No two safaris are alike. However, our clients invariably comment how they'd seen more game than expected and are delighted with the dramatic variety of landscapes. The charm and traditional hospitality of the local people will touch you forever. Perhaps a cliché, your first safari experience haunts you until you return for more...

Our private 10,000-acre ranch, Ndarakwai, at West Kilimanjaro, plays an important role as the base for many of our walking safaris. The area is unique because we are free to conduct night game-drives, and visit local communities. For more information on the Ndarakwai Camp click here.
