Unique Safaris’ philosophy and standards- NEW SET ITINERARIES

We have established our reputation by providing outstanding guiding and highly personalized customer service. Unique Safaris has been a licensed Tanzanian Tour Operator since 1990. We are considered an elite tour operator that provides private custom-designed itineraries but we are now expanding our services to also offer set itineraries that have been designed with a great budget and locations that offer optimal wildlife viewing for 6-14 days of safari. Our itinerary options are listed either as adventure pricing; mid-budget pricing and higher-end pricing.

Our set itineraries can be booked exactly as written or with any changes to accommodations if you care to upgrade your lodging. Our commitment is to provide our same outstanding guiding and customer service but now at various budget levels. The locations for each itinerary have been selected based on the yearly wildlife movement in the various parks and an adequate game drive distance to maximize wildlife with a degree of privacy. We believe the primary reason for guests to visit Tanzania is to enjoy the wildlife so accommodations have been selected for their locations and the adventure you can experience with wildlife. Our set itineraries are also based on a belief that all wildlife is exquisite to witness, understand and photograph. Only wildebeest and zebra migrate with weather; all other wildlife keeps their territories or remain in certain habitats so there is great adventure anywhere you go!

The itineraries offered are still private safaris and they are not group departures dependent upon a certain number of participants in order to happen. And as always, we continue to create custom-designed itineraries at your request.

All pricing includes:

  • All accommodations as shown in the set itinerary (upgrades can be arranged at additional cost)
  • All meals from dinner upon arrival to dinner upon departure
  • All local travel including transfers, any bush flights and normal meet and greet services by Unique Safaris with all arrivals, departure and transfers

  • Bottled water in the vehicle on all game drives
