About Our Tanzanian Ecotour

Experience the best of Tanzania on our locally crafted Safari. Our guides have strong ties to the community and will join us as we mingle with the Maasai, hike through shaded forests to waterfalls, search for endangered black rhinos, and observe the biggest concentration of elephants in the world. Witness the Great Migration and the dramatic landscapes and abundance of life in the Serengeti, one of the world’s most famous parks. Throughout the trip to Tanzania we stay at beautiful, comfortable lodging that makes you feel right at home.

Tanzania Safari Accommodatations

These hotels and lodges have been hand picked in order to satisfy your need to safely relax in friendly locations that are close to the day’s activities.

Arumeru Lodge

  • Located just 35 minutes from Kilimanjaro Airport, this lodge is the ideal base for our Safari. All rooms are tastefully decorated and simply step outside to watch small Dik Dik Antelopes roam freely between the garden chalets.

Osupuko Lodge

  • The best detail of this permanent safari camp is the unbeatable view of Tarangire Park where you can watch the animals go to and fro. It can be a bit warm here, but the wonderful Maasai staff supply cold beers at the bar and by the swimming pool to help you cool down. Equipped with indoor and outdoor showers, the immaculate rooms have an eclectic feel and offer a fun feel during your stay.

The Ang’at’a Camp

  • The perfect stop before you head to the Ngorongoro Crater: take a nice hot shower, sit by the cozy campfire and eat a great meal. The setting is beautifully rustic and secluded and offers an intimate and peaceful environment. Caring and helpful staff members offer “bush babies” (hot water bottles to keep you warm in bed) to guests on chilly nights and upon request. The best part about this lodge is its location as we will be among the first to descend into the crater at sunrise.

Tortilis Camp

  • In the middle of the Serengeti, in Africa’s finest wilderness, surrounded by its most incredible wildlife,Tortilis creates a camp that captures the true atmosphere of a Serengeti safari. Expect comfort, delicious cuisine, and above all, a warm, warm welcome.

Tanzania Travel FAQ

Our Tanzania Wildlife Safari does not require high levels of physical fitness. To visit the Maasai village, guests should be prepared to be on their feet for at least a few hours, or be comfortable seated on the ground. Guests should be able to comfortably enter a Toyota Land Cruiser, and feel comfortable walking around sometimes uneven terrain at our lodges. There is also a walking safari, and guests will need to be able to hike on moderate difficulty trails, with a few inclines, for a few hours. The Maasai village and walking safari are optional, but to get the most out of your experience, we recommend both. Contact us for more information.
The sun in East Africa can be intense, so be sure to protect your skin and drink lots of water while traveling. Use our suggestions as a reference for your safari packing list.

“When is the Great Migration?” is a loaded question. The short answer is that the cyclical journey happens year round and never ends. The long answer is that it depends on what you are interested in seeing! read more
A culture teeming with history, tradition and controversy, the Maasai are one of Africa’s most iconic tribes. As semi-nomads, they live between southern Kenya and northern Tanzania. There are estimated to be 1 million Maasai living between these countries, though it is hard to find an exact count in rural areas.

What Our Amazing Guests Have To Say


Barbara Torres“This was my first trip to Africa. Choosing Gondwana Ecotours was a wonderful choice. This trip exceeded all my expectations. The accommodations were always comfortable and above what I expected to find in the “bush”. We had excellent guides and drivers. We Saw so many game animals every day. The surprise was not only seeing so many animals up close, but receiving such a depth of knowledge about each one from our guides. Another unexpected plus was being welcomed to visit a Maasai village for a day. A trip of a lifetime. ”
—Barbara Torres
David Loss“Excellent!! The tour was literally a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Tanzania and the Serengeti far exceeded our expectations. We not only saw tons of different wildlife but also were amazingly close to the animals. Our wildlife guides were experienced and knew the animals and their behaviors well. The size of the group was small which made everything doable. We all had great seats in the wildlife viewing land cruisers. In fact everyone in the group had window seats. Our accommodations were very pleasant and comfortable throughout this tour. All in all I would give this tour a six out of possible 5. I certainly would encourage anyone with an interest in Africa and its indigenous people to take this tour. Before we went to the Serengeti, Jared had arranged for a visit to a Maasai village. This too was beyond expectations with our interaction with the people of this village and learning their culture. Would love to this tour again. ”
—David Loss
sharon-duran“I recently travelled to Tanzania on an eco safari. This trip far surpassed any expectations I had. Jared, Ann and Mike from Gondwana were total professionals and looked out for our every need. The accommodations were wonderful. Who knew you could get WiFi in the Serengeti! Our 3 drivers/guides were the best. The were professional, personable and very knowledgeable. They could spot animals where I’d swear there were none and could answer any question we asked. Thanks to Gondwana Ecotours, I just enjoyed the trip of a lifetime with memories that will last just a long. I strongly recommend that anyone planning travels contact them first. “
