Aventura Safaris


Aventura is a family run business, born out of a deep love for our home country: Tanzania. We were born and raised here, and are first hand witnesses to the beauty and development of the region. Having grown up exploring the bush and the coast, we know the area intimately. We believe in our country, and the potential it holds for spectacular tourism, and we want to share this passion with you.

There are many tour operators working in the country but we believe that because of our origins and passion, we can offer you the best experience possible – here is why:

  •  We are Tanzanians, and the country is our sole focus – we know this place intimately and will share that knowledge with you
  • We are deeply passionate about showing our country to our guests, and tailoring your experience exactly to you!
  • We have strong international connections, and truly understand international expectations for service and quality
  • We are always available for our guests – any time of day, any method of communication: our family is devoted to making sure you easily get all the answers.
  • We are well connected and experienced with the Tanzanian tourism industry, allowing us to offer tailor made packages at competitive prices without compromising quality!
  • We are members of ABTA and TATO, ensuring a high level of quality and reliability for our guests.

Your trip is the core of our business and we want to provide every single guest with the most memorable and incredible experience possible. Our goal is to have each of our guests fall in love with Tanzania through our tours, just as we have. It is a big goal, but we believe our knowledge and passion make it possible!

Local Expertise, Converted to International Standards
Our expertise and experience as a family allows us to set such high goals and standards for each guest’s experience with total confidence.

After working in numerous Tanzanian industries, our family has decided to come together to pursue our passion of sharing the wonders of the region with the rest of the world. Combined, we have over 15 years of experience in tourism with strong industry connections in Tanzania. We exclusively work with hotels and lodges that we are certain meet our standards for quality. We seek out accommodation that shares our values, and test these places out ourselves. We have a wide variety of lodge partners, enabling us to tailor your trip to your exact vision and needs.

Furthermore, we are strongly connected to the United Kingdom. This means we understand and strive to meet international standards for quality, openness, responsibility and reliability. We are able to translate our local knowledge to you, through a variety of European languages.

Open and Easy Communication and Payments, right from the beginning
In order for us to tailor your trip to you perfectly, we rely on open, honest and frequent communication. We want to understand you – your likes, your dislikes, your experience, your expectations (and your allergies!). We promise to match your communication preferences – whether it is email, Skype or phone calls. From there, we will give you a customized tour of potential options and experiences and begin the process!

As we work together to develop a perfect package, we will be in frequent communication to discuss ideas, present options and make decisions together. We will communicate with you as frequently or as infrequently as you like – again, this we want to tailor this process to you. Our team is able to communicate through numerous European languages, further simplifying the process. The more we know, the better we can serve you.

Furthermore, we are well equipped to offer payments from all major credit cards online – making everything as simple as possible for you!

All we ask from you throughout this process is that you ask as many questions as possible. We are firm believers in the idea that there is never too silly a question, or too much information.

Highly Skilled Guides, with you every step of the way
Having worked closely with an Aventura team member to coordinate the safari, we then connect you with experienced guides to lead you through your trip on the ground!

On any Aventura tour, our experienced and educated guides will combine the full spectrum of adventure, education and relaxation, all the while accommodating your preferences and goals. For a first trip to Africa, guests can expect a full orientation to the country and continent, with guides that will highlight the accomplishments, struggles and sheer beauty of the area. For seasoned visitors, or guides will gladly delve deeper in to the topics and subjects you love the most – whether it be birds, mammals, reptiles or total luxury.

As a Tanzanian/UK company, we will show you the beauty of the outdoor classroom under African skies, while maintaining international standards for quality and luxury.
