Safari isn’t just cruising around on the back of a 4x4 spotting game. Whether by foot, by sea, by bus, or by boat—safari is the Swahili word for journey. In Tanzania there are so many extraordinary ways to experience Safari, your journey.
At the Slow Leopard, we want to make your safari experience as affordable and as smooth as possible, while helping you enjoy some of the more unique experiences Tanzania has to offer. One of the best ways we can do this this is by helping you coordinate with like-minded travellers so you can share costs, save time, get accurate info, and hopefully explore a little further off the beaten track.
We can connect you to trusted tour operators and other travellers, and provide suggested itineraries and travel tips for some of our favourite Tanzanian experiences. We make the most of our relationships with local providers to get you the best deal on that trip you have been dreaming about.
Here’s how it works:
You tell us about your safari plans
Number of people, dates, locations, special requests
We collect and collate!
Confidentially comparing your safari ideas with those of like-minded travellers
We introduce and advise!
We connect you to other travellers, trusted tour operators and help answer any questions
For most safaris and tours you can easily book through us
