All our guides have been handpicked due to their appropriate experience as naturalists, great personalities, well-developed analytical and engaging communication skills which give them incredible interpretive abilities, well-rounded knowledge, good hosting experience topped by an amazing passion and enthusiasm for their profession.
All of them have attended Naturalists’, First Aid,Basic Mechanics, and Hospitality courses hence be assured of a perfect personal host during the entire time you are with us.
We use specially converted 4x4 Land Cruisers as our ‘Safari Vehicles’. The conversion gave these 5-seater vehicles more legroom hence more spacious and comfortable, bigger windows for better game viewing, a refrigerator to chill all the drinks during the warm Tanzanian afternoons, power inverter for mobile charging up of electronic appliances, double fuel tanks system which allows long game drives plus a sturdy body and mechanism fit for the rough terrain.
All our Safaris are private and custom-made hence instead of the usual pattern of scheduled departures; we will prepare a trip to fit your specifications, preference, and schedule. Because of this arrangement, our guides are not allocated daily mileage hence they will be ready and able to cover as much ground as needed to make each day enjoyable, productive, and special.
Tanzania is home to more than 120 different tribes. While each tribe is unique in its way and there is a wide array of rich cultures available, visitors will only be directly exposed to very few of them due to the geographic location, and the level of resistance to changes and assimilation that those individual tribes have shown over the years which makes them unique.
The most visible tribes for the visitors to Tanzania are the Maasai – the victors of the Nilotic pastoralist tribal and cattle-raiding wars that raged in the East Africa region in the 1800s. Their pride, arrogance, and fearsome reputation as warriors and lion-killers have earned them special reverence in the eyes of the world. And secondly, we have the Hadzabe (‘Bushmen’) these are the people with perhaps the longest history and most ancient traditions, a tribe of hunter-gatherers now settled around Lake Eyasi in the North of Tanzania. As mentioned previously, the livelihood of this group is threatened by modern life, but the Hadza people have been allocated an area of their own, in which they may continue a lifestyle as close to the traditional style as possible.
We think it a wonderful idea to add a bit of Cultural Tourism to every itinerary we propose as it is a wonderful experience to discover the heart of the country that you are visiting by briefly exploring the local fascinating cultures and to enjoy the history, traditions, food, and artworks of different people.
Kilimanjaro, with its three volcanic cones, Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira, is a dormant volcano in Tanzania and the highest mountain in Africa with Uhuru Peak/Kibo Peak being the summit at 5,895 meters or 19,341 feet above sea level.
This is the most preferred mountain to be conquered by the climbers visiting Tanzania mostly due to the accessibility to the peak by regular tourists and climbers with no proper mountain climbing experience although in saying so it does not mean that it is an easy feat to achieve. It is advisable that one consults a medical doctor and goes for a physical check-up before attempting the climb.
The other interesting mountain climbing in Tanzania could be done at either Mount Meru (the peak at 4,566 makes it the 5th highest in Africa) or Oldonyo Lengai (the Mountain of God) both found in the Arusha region. Both mountains offering a different experience to Mount Kilimanjaro and they require less time to climb hence more physically challenging in a way.
There are various options available for walking safaris and other forms of easy to strenuous trekking options within the national park areas hence a possibility of including this option on the regular safari is there and it is a wonderful way to get to see the countryside up close and personal and to stretch your legs after spending most of the time sitting.
The Zanzibar Archipelago is a tropical paradise with some of Africa's beaches, long stretches of fine white sand fringed by palm trees, and turquoise seas. The history and the people of Zanzibar are something that you will need to experience to understand and appreciate its beauty and significance. A wide variety of hotels and lodges: something to suit everyone from luxurious, all-inclusive resorts to 'barefoot luxury' private islands and simple, inexpensive beach retreats is there for you to choose.
Mafia Island ("Chole Shamba") is part of the Tanzanian Spice Islands, together with Unguja and Pemba. Mafia Archipelago doesn't have the same long stretches of white sand beaches as Zanzibar, but it is still amazingly beautiful, quieter, and very relaxed and laid-back. Enjoy some of the best diving and snorkeling there exploring the many coral reefs that are teeming with tropical marine life. There are over 400 species of fish inhabiting the reefs around the Mafia. You can also spend time on the deserted sandbars surrounded by shallow coral seas. There are few intimate lodges there offering a more personal feel and at a great value. Mafia is located off the coast of Tanzania, 25 km from the mainland and 130 km from Dar es Salaam; it is reachable by light aircraft in about 40 minutes from the mainland.

Thanks again Francis
And thanks for the Masai blankets
The trip was absolutely perfect! I could use all the adjectives to describe each moment of it, but I would still run out of them. We LOVED every moment of it.
We had the most fantastic trip! It was full of adventure, excitement, some scary bits (lions in the night), and beauty.
We truly enjoyed the trip, and really appreciate your help in organizing the trip, and then modifying the activities for me at last moment. You were helpful and so friendly through the process,
Just wanted to let you know, we had a really great trip! Our flights worked out. Our guide from Timeless Travel was college educated in wildlife management and he was excellent.
Thank you for your contribution to this and for assigning your best guide to this group – it obviously worked!
Back to France after a great Tanzania week.
