Join us for 8 emotional days!

In the westernmost part of Tanzania it is possible to have one of the most unique and exclusive experiences of the African continent.

We offer a luxury Safari, in a dream lodge, 8 days (from Tuesday to Tuesday) with a first stop in Arusha at the National Park for a fun experience of walking safari and canoeing on Lake Momella. Four days instead will be dedicated to Gombe Stream National Park: a thin strip of ancient mountain forest that borders the second deepest lake in the world, Lake Tanganyika. The park is famous for the studies on primates (chimpanzees) conducted recently by the British researcher Jane Goodall.

Join us for a truly extraordinary experience of close encounter with these amazing animals in a natural setting in one of the most pristine and wild parks in Tanzania! We staff will be available for any need from your arrival at the airport to your departure.
