Tanzania boasts unparalleled concentrations of wildlife – there is no country that can compete with the sheer number and density of wild animals. Tanzania is home to the famous “Great Migration” and more National Parks than any other African country – including two of the most renowned wildlife parks in the entire world. It is also a politically stable and safe country with gracious, respectful people and very little crime.


No mixed groups, no competing for views with strangers and no conflicting interests. You will enjoy the exclusive use of a private vehicle providing maximum flexibility, comfort and wildlife viewing.


We offer early morning (before sunrise) game drives to exclusively witness predators in action and herbivores in their more active states. We’ll pack a breakfast to enjoy in the pristine ambience of the bush while the package tours are having their “buffet” meals back at the lodge or campsites.


Each safari offers unlimited game drives with no mileage restrictions and exclusive access to the most secluded and wildlife abundant areas in Tanzania. Most other companies operate shorter, limited game drives and never end up making it far from the lodge – or other tourists.


You are in complete control of when, where and how long you want to stay out on a game drive. You choose what animals you want look for, how long you stay at each sighting and when you return – it’s all up to you! 


On safari you will receive complete and focused attention by your professional driver-guide, with the expert knowledge and skills required to make sure you have the trip of a lifetime.


By choosing Wild Root Safaris, you have the luxury of setting your own agenda (with our help, of course) and you won’t be shuffled through rigid itineraries and fixed timetables that other companies often require you to adhere to.


All of our itineraries are strategically designed on a monthly basis to take advantage of seasonal wildlife concentrations, and all safaris incorporate specific game drives to witness all of the Big Five.


Choose from a large selection of unique optional activities including authentic cultural tours, scenic flights, field talks, balloon safaris, bush picnics and walking safaris.


Your safety is our ultimate priority. We pride ourselves in offering our guests comfort and peace of mind. We are local operators and our office based in Tanzania to support all segments of your trip. All of our safaris are fully escorted and chauffeured from arrival to departure.


We are committed to providing you with an unsurpassed level of service. Our passion, commitment, and expertise are what set us apart.


We are committed to working within our community and giving back to the locals that make Tanzania great. We continuously support projects like building schools, helping and helping the disabled children in Arusha.
