Tanzania Safari Types: Group, Private Or Self-Drive?

Firstly, you have a broad choice between joining a Group Safari, doing a Self Drive Safari or booking a Private Safari tailor-made for you.

Group Safaris

Groups Safaris are cheaper than customised safaris, but they don't offer as much flexibility or exclusivity. Both self-drive and private safaris can be fully customized to include the standard of accommodation and activities that you prefer which gives you more choice.

Group safaris offer the chance to participate in a game drive by compromising one’s individual schedule. The reason for choosing such is to reduce the price and spread the cost of the safari across all members of the tour, but could also be to make friends and meet new people during your adventure.

Private Tailor Made Safaris

Private safaris mean custom trips and no compromising on your interests or schedule. Private tailor-made safaris become more affordable when you are travelling in a group of 4 or more people. Even if your travel party is smaller you may find the extra expenditure worthwhile especially if your group needs a specialist guide who speaks your language. Private Safaris are also ideal for groups with special interests, such as hiking, photography and birding.

We believe that private tour is the best way to experience a Tanzania Safari. Whether it’s your honeymoon, a family vacation or a small group of your closest friends, a private safari offers the chance to meet all of your safari adventure dreams.

Self Drive Safaris

Self-drive Safaris can be the cheapest option if researched and planned carefully, but with Tanzania safaris, self-drive isn't necessarily the cheapest way to go.

Self-driven safaris also mean self-organized. Not only will you spend a great deal of time planning and reading reviews to book your own accommodations, but you will also have to locate them all on your own! It is not an easy endeavour to drive through unmarked roads in remote areas of Tanzania to find your lodgings, and perhaps impossible to navigate if you are not a fluent Swahili speaker.

We at Jerry Tanzania Tours confidently recommend private safaris for the best way to experience Tanzania. Our experts handle all of the booking details and can adapt each itinerary to suit individual interests so that guests can fully enjoy the safari experience.
