It’s time to experience a safari Tanzania style! African Outdoor Expeditions allows holidaymakers and adventurers to design their own safari vacation of a lifetime, giving you the flexibility to craft your dream holiday, whether for an individual or group.

From the major National Parks in northern Tanzania to the lesser known parts of the country, you will have the choice of staying at African Outdoor Expeditions’ exclusive safari lodge – situated at Karatu next to Ngorongoro Crater and a short distance from Lake Manyara – or an amazing mobile luxury camp which follows the great migration.

A personal service

Allan Philemon Mbaga - Owner of African Outdoor Expeditions who offers Design Your Own Safari Tanzania

Allan (Kiliman) loves to show the beauty of his homeland

Central to African Outdoor Expeditions, also known by his nickname Kiliman. Allan is a man of the mountains and savanna, and respected as one of the best tour guides in the whole of Tanzania, due to his unmatched local knowledge and lifetime spent in the Pare Mountains region of Northern Tanzania and the plains of The Serengeti. The quarter-of-a-century experience provided to African Outdoor Expeditions by Allan – including his wisdom as a naturalist, botanist and ornithologist – makes this the safari Tanzania has been waiting for.

Beautiful Tanzania

Tanzania is a vast country in East Africa – it is actually bigger than the US states of California, Oregon and Nevada combined! Best of all for safari adventurers, it is home to the biggest game reserve on the African continent, as well as the highest peak and deepest lake. This is a nation just begging to be discovered, and over a quarter of its land mass is well preserved as national parks, including the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Serengeti National Park, Kilimanjaro National Park, Selous Game Reserve and the Ruins of Kilwa Kisiwani and Songo Mnara.

The choice is yours

What are you waiting for?


By adding the cost of a water pump to your safari you and your group can change the lives of an African family.

While the majority of Tanzanians live an agrarian lifestyle, most farms are less than two acres in size making it difficult to rely purely on subsistence farming. Small-scale commercial farming can be a very profitable business in Africa, but it’s difficult without irrigation.

Kickstart LogoSince 1996 a company called KickStart has been making small treadle operated pumps which can be used to pull water from hand-dug wells, streams or ponds and be used to irrigate up to two acres of land. These treadle pumps require no fuel, are easy to use and durable. KickStart has sold over 16,000 pumps here in Tanzania and over 50,000 continent-wide.

While these pumps are priced at less than $110 they are still out of reach of many local farmers, but this is where you can help out. A portion of the proceeds from one of our Support safaris purchases a pump and the clients help deliver and install the pump during their visit.

You can read more about these pumps at Kickstart’s web site.
