Location of Adventure
Tanzania, East Africa
Group Size Limit
Approximately 16 Travelers
While this is a private trip arranged on a custom basis for your family, we can accommodate up to 16 travelers, should you wish to combine your safari with another family or make it a multi-generational affair. Our safari vehicles accommodate a maximum of 4 or 5 travelers, but for larger groups, we can take advantage of several safari vehicles, all in radio contact, to enhance our coordination of wildlife sightings among vehicles.
Our Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
As with all of our global adventures, our focus is on wildlife and nature viewing, and in Africa a big portion of that happens during our wildlife drives. Our Tanzania safari vehicles are specially adapted, reinforced Land Cruisers seating 4-5 travelers each, all with a window seat. The custom-installed Volvo bucket seats have superior-quality spring cushions and adjustable lumbar support for incomparable comfort. Since each row has its own roof hatch and sits slightly higher than the row in front of it, all guests enjoy excellent viewing opportunities. With no middle seats, there is plenty of room for gear and extra leg room. Refrigerators/ice boxes keep drinks cool for our guests and an on-board library of bird and mammal books offer insight into the region’s natural history. As is the case with all of our vehicles, these safari trucks are enhanced with extra suspension to ensure the most comfortable ride possible in the wilds of Africa.
Our Private Leaders
Internal light aircraft flight, accommodations, all meals from dinner on Day 1 to lunch on final day, soft drinks and house alcoholic beverages in mobile camps, services of NHA Expedition Leader, local guides and lodge staff, airport transfers on Day 1 and final day, permits and entrance fees, and all taxes.
Not Included
Travel to and from start and end point of trip, most alcoholic beverages, gratuities, passport and visa fees, optional activities, items of a personal nature (phone calls, souvenirs, etc.), airline baggage fees, airport and departure taxes, optional travel insurance, and required medical evacuation insurance.
Physical Requirements
There is no strenuous activity involved during this safari, though a safari vehicle frequently offers a bumpy ride. Wildlife drives often involve long hours of sitting and sometimes bouncing around. While we don't consider this strenuous, it can be uncomfortable and pose a particular type of physical demand on the body, and younger children must be able to sit still and be quiet while searching for or in the presence of wildlife. Travelers must be able to climb into and out of the raised 4x4 trucks that we use for safari vehicles. They must also be able to walk to and from the vehicle to our camp accommodations, which sometimes involves walking over uneven ground or on boardwalks. Additionally, while any short walks are optional, you will get the most out of your safari experience if you can walk a mile or two over uneven ground without assistance. Travelers with an adventurous spirit will often enjoy the closest animal encounters.
Important Information About This Trip
Tanzania is legendary safari destination, with prolific wildlife. This family Africa safari is designed to showcase the finest wildlife areas of Tanzania while also creating a well-rounded experience that highlights varied ecosystems, magnificent scenery and cultural encounters. We have spent years finessing our itinerary and securing the necessary permits to travel into the best wildlife areas while maintaining the seclusion and enjoying the atmospheric accommodations that make an NHA trip special.

Your safari wildlife drives take place in the highest quality, 4-wheel-drive Land Rovers and Land Cruisers, providing up-close encounters that cannot be accomplished in typical safari vans. Our vehicles have fully removable tops which provide a full 360-degree view of wildlife and scenic environs. Since every passenger is guaranteed a window seat, you are assured plenty of space for wildlife viewing and taking photographs.
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas we travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for our guests' safety. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat, we request that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We will add the cost of a medical evacuation policy to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, contact number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.
Getting There & Getting Home
You must arrive in Arusha, Tanzania by 6pm on Day 1 and you may depart from Arusha after 5pm on the final day. We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as our staff is intimately familiar with the special requirements of these programs and can arrange the most efficient and cost-effective travel.
