Why Choose Shrike

TANZANIA'S # 1 SAFARI & KILIMANJARO TREK OUTFITTER

Tanzania is our homeland; we know Tanzanian safaris better than anyone else, and we offer a way to experience Africa ethically, comfortably, and intimately. But we’ll admit: we might be biased. That’s why you should see what our guests have to say about their experiences traveling with Shrike Safaris. Over the years, hundreds (if not thousands) of Shrike travelers have told us we provided the “ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME experience,” one they can’t wait to talk about. We don’t have to edit or cherry-pick their responses; our guests are just that happy.

Personalized Service

Because we are a smaller, locally based business we are free to customize your trip and are not restricted by set safari routes that other larger, foreign-based companies often have to abide by. We have personal relationships with staff at all of the places you will travel; from lodges to shops, to excursions, we are on a first-name basis with all of our partners, which allows us to give you the most flexible, customizable, and unique experience you desire.

We Set the Standard

The accommodations you helped us select were all very impressive. At Giraffe Manor, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge, Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, and Four Seasons Serengeti in particular we had an unparalleled level of service that made us feel like celebrities. At each of these locations we were also delighted that we were congratulated on our honeymoon and all of the staff went above and beyond to make sure we were very comfortable and happy. There is nothing that could have been improved at these lodges, they were superlative in every way. As we left each location, we wished we could have spent more time there!
