The Best Team in Tanzania

Expert Trip Leaders

The skilled guides at Wilderness Travel transform your safari from amazing to absolutely life-changing. As you look for game alongside these delightful masters of safari, you will be astounded by their vast knowledge, keen eyes (how do they see so incredibly far?), boundless energy, and warm personalities. Our extraordinary guides are the secret to your experience of this bucket-list adventure. They focus on all the details, from keeping you safe in the bush to finding wildlife in places our untrained eyes would miss, answering your every question, and even helping you set up your camera for the best shot. All native Tanzanians who have been with WT for years, our guides have an immense love for their country and a belief in the positive impact safaris can bring to supporting conservation. They are the true treasures of our safari, and you will certainly leave the trip calling them not just “friends” but “family.”
