SAFARI

Northern Tanzania Wildlife Safaris

Wildlife Safaris

Undoubtedly, Mount Kilimanjaro is the magnet which attracts the majority of our clients to East Africa, many trekkers take advantage of spending some time on a wildlife safari either before, or usually after, their Kilimanjaro climb.
Tanzania is considered to be the best safari destination on earth. Therefore it would be a shame to come all the way here and not take advantage of the wildlife viewing opportunities. The country has more protected areas than any other African country. More than 25% of its land is comprised of national parks, game reserves and conservation areas.
Whether you have a short stay or extended vacation, Fronny Expeditions has an itinerary and options that suits you. From the depths of the Ngorongoro Crater to the savannas of the Serengeti, whereas, our experts’ driver guides will accompany you onto the heart of the action.
Fronny Expeditions offers private safaris with one to seven day itineraries. Our safaris include accommodations in lodges and permanent tented camps, strategically located in the heart of the action in Serengeti National Park and in Karatu, an ideal base for excursions into Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Eyasi and Lake Manyara.
Our clients tour Tanzania in four wheel drive Toyota Land Cruisers – the standard for safaris in Africa. We have a fleet of well-maintained vehicles with custom pop up roofs for the best game viewing experience. Our Land Cruisers can seat from four to seven passengers, depending on the length of the vehicle. Bottled water and electrical outlets are available in the vehicles. Staffed by professional driver guides who have intimate knowledge of the wildlife – they can spot animals from great distances and do their best to bring you close for an unforgettable encounter with Africa’s majestic animals.

All safaris are private; also we do operate group safaris. You decide what you want to see and for how long. You can depart on any day, for any period of time. Inside the vehicle, it will be just you, your party and your guide. During game drives, your guide will be pointing out and describe the animals in the nearby surroundings. Feel free to ask questions – the more the better. Note that the wildlife are accustomed to the presence of safari vehicles and its human occupants, so the animals will continue to behave normally even when the vehicles are close by. However, all guests are strictly forbidden to exit the vehicle except in designated areas. There are some proper facilities for restroom breaks. Alternatively, your guide may find a safe area for outdoor relief if those are far away.
The days begin with a hot breakfast, followed by travel to a destination or a game drive if you are already in a park. Driving times between destinations will vary but they typically range between one to two hours. Note that the roads are not paved, so expect a bumpy and dusty ride, known as an “African massage.”
A lunch is packed so you may eat while en route or while on a game drive. Sometimes there will be a good outdoor spot to have lunch, while other times it is not practical and thus better to eat in the vehicle. There will be plenty of time for finding new wildlife to observe and taking photographs. Let your guide know what interests you.
Before dark, you will head back to the lodge for well-earned shower before dinner. If you have had enough game viewing for a day, you can always ask to retire early. In some places, dinner is buffet style while others are a la carte. After dinner, your guide will discuss when to be ready for the following day’s events.
