Discover the beauties of Tanzania like the Serengeti National Park or the Selous Game Reserve. Experience the fascinating wildlife, breathtaking landscapes and wonderful beaches. One of our experienced local drivers can accompany you, if desired.

Our Land Rovers come fully equipped with everything you need for a journey beyond the well-trodden paths: roof tents, complete camping equipment including a cooker, a water tank, a fridge, GPS, a radio with an adapter for iPods, and much more. The equipment enables you to be out in the bush for several days without forgoing the comfort you appreciate - thus the cars are ideal for camera teams and researchers as well.

If you prefer traveling from one lodge to the next we can organize accommodations for you.

Just let us know what your dream holiday should be like. We will arrange  the right package for your dream to become reality! "Feel Free Like a Massai"

Rent a Land Rover

The Land Rovers 110 rented out by Tanzanian Pioneers are just perfect for safaris and longer trips in the bush. They have been purpose-built for safaris and can accommodate up to four persons. Two roof tents for two persons each guarantee you safe and comfortable nights. In case of only two persons renting the car, one roof tent can be removed.

Our Land Rovers are based in Arusha which is a good and quick starting point for safaris to the most famous national parks.

Before your departure we will train you how to drive our cars in order to prepare you for your safari and enable you to manage even difficult terrain. Of course, a driver can be booked with the car as well. Please note that in this case it is only possible to book the car for three persons.

Book a Safari in Tanzania

When going on a safari with us two things are guaranteed: you always sit in the front row and a window seat enables you to observe everything closely. If you prefer a guided tour instead of exploring Tanzania's phenomenal flora and fauna on your own in one of our Landrovers, we will happily create a special offer for your individual needs. There is a big assortment of possibilities to choose from: you can go camping or stay in luxurious lodges, you can either spend your days at the magnificent white beaches of the Indian Ocean or climb Africa's highest mountain, the Kilimanjaro.  You can drive around on your own or you can choose to be driven, you can go trekking or mountain biking, depending on how exciting or relaxing a trip you would like to have. No matter what you decide on it is going to be an unforgettable journey. 

Just tell us about your personal preferences and where to put the main focus when planning your trip to Tanzania and we will take care of the rest.

Flag TanzaniaTreat yourself to an unforgettable journey through the land of unmatched splendor. Located on the Indian Ocean, Tanzania is blessed with many natural wonders. Within its borders lies Mount Kilimanjaro with an elevation of 5895 meters. The Olduvai Gorge located in the northern part of the country is considered the cradle of humanity. The famous Serengeti, which in the language of the Maasai means "the endless plains," is a world heritage site.   At nearly 15,000 sq. km., extending from northern Tanzania to southern Kenya, it is one of the world's largest parks. Africa's highest predator density is found in Ngorongoro Crater, also a world heritage site. Tanzania is also home to a third world heritage site, the Selous Game Reserve, which encompasses an area of over 50,000 sq. km. Tanzania contains numerous lakes within its borders.  Lake Victoria, Africa's largest lake, lies largely in northern Tanzania.  Lake Malawi, with it's crystal clear waters, is to the south.  Located on the western border is Lake Tanganyika. The Indian Ocean, along the eastern coast, offers relaxation on tropical, palm-fringed beaches. Tanzania's bustling commercial capital is Dar es Salaam or "Harbor of Peace".  Home to about three million people, it is known for one of the finest natural harbors in the world. Boats depart daily to the white beaches of the coral island of Zanzibar, known for centuries for its spice trade.  Even today, the old style Arab sailing ships, or dhows, are used to make this journey.
