Welcome to the most

beautiful place on earth


Tanzania is so beautiful that when you get off the plane after your flight, you will blink your eyes in disbelief.

The bluest sky, the yellowest sun, Mount Kilimanjaro and its three volcanic cones, Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira, all spread out in front of you as you start your Tanzanian safari journey. Extreme Expedition takes you to some of the true jewels of Africa, parks that people spend their entire lives wanting to visit. And you are finally here, ready to start on an adventure that will stay with you forever.

There is a Kiswahili proverb that goes ‘Mwenye pupa hadiriki kula tamu’ or ‘A hasty person misses the sweet things’. We encourage you to relax, slow down, appreciate the sweet things and take time to fall in love with Tanzania.

Extreme Expedition takes you to some of the true jewels of Africa, parks that people spend their entire lives wanting to visit. And you are finally here, ready to start on an adventure that will stay with you forever.

We offer a range of carefully planned safari tours, taking in some of the most beautiful and ancient landscapes in existence. Enter a world where elephant families cross the land as they have done for centuries and savannah, marsh and evergreen forest share the same park.

No two trips are ever the same. Everyone who travels with us has a unique experience, created for them and only them. Do one tour this year then come back next year for another – once Africa gets under your skin, it will be there forever.

Tarangire National Park

Located between the meadows of the Maasai Steppe and the lakes of the Great Rift Valley, the Tarangire National Park is one of the most seasonal parks in northern Tanzania.   The park gets its name from the Tarangire River that crosses it, attracting herds of animals to drink from its waters.

The park is full of wildlife, including elephants and zebras. Migratory wildebeest, eland, gazelle, impala, kudu, rhino, buffalo can be seen gathering around the lagoons. Mongoose colonies hide in abandoned anthills.

The park is home to over 550 different bird species, and it is fabulous place for bird lovers, who find themselves spending hours marvelling over the colourful and rare species in the skies and trees around them.

It is also famous for its baobab trees, whose spreading branches and strange upside-down appearance are synonymous with Africa. These trees support the life of countless creatures and are surrounded by tales of myth and magic. A trip to a Maasai or Barabaig village, filled with ancient paintings, brings another element to your visit.

Lake Manyara National Park

This is one of Tanzania’s smaller parks, but no less beautiful because of it. In fact, when you visit you may feel you have stumbled upon a secret gem. It has eleven ecosystems and one of the highest biomass densities of large animals in the world.

The park is known for its breathtaking scenery and is dominated by Lake Manyara, which attracts flocks of pink flamingos. Other waterbirds such as pelicans, cormorants and storks also visit the lake. Elephant families moving together through the forest, tree-climbing lions and baboons are just some of the wildlife you might experience here.

Something that really sets Lake Manyara apart from other Tanzanian safari parks is the Treetop Walkway. The 370m walk gradually rises from ground level up through the canopy of the forest, allowing you to walk among the treetops surrounded by butterflies, monkeys and birds and experience nature and wildlife from a unique perspective.

The Ngoronogoro Conservation Area

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a UNESCO world heritage

site.  It offers a wide selection of mammals and birdlife such as elephants, zebras, ostriches and the almost extinct black rhino.

It is also home to some of the most important archaeological sites in the world, including Oldupai Gorge and Laetoli.  The modern visitor may want to stop for a while and wonder if they are literally walking in the footsteps of their ancestors - archaeologists have suggested the area could be the birthplace of mankind after finding evidence showing it occupied by hominids over 3 million years ago.

The Ngorongoro Crater, the largest unbroken, inactive and unfilled caldera in the world, is another reason to visit this park.  With a diameter of approximately 19km and walls that rise over 610m, the crater floor is covered in landscapes that range from dense mountain forest and woodlands to grasslands, lakes and swamps.

The Serengeti

The Serengeti is possible the best known of all the national parks. It is famous throughout the world and has deep significance to the area’s heritage. It is one of the seven natural wonders of Africa, along with the Nile, the Sahara desert and the Okavango Delta in Botswana.

The park has one of the oldest and most scientifically significant ecosystems on the plant. Its weather patterns, fauna and flora are believed to have changed very little for a million years or more, giving the area a prehistoric presence. When you visit and step down from your jeep for the first time, you may have to catch your breath as you look across the endless plains that give the park its name, knowing that you are experiencing a vista unchanged for centuries.

Depending on when you visit, you might be lucky enough to see the annual Great Wildebeest Migration, when 2 million wildebeest, zebras, eland and gazelle can be seen crossing the rivers and fields of the Serengeti in a regular pattern, in search of fresh grazing and water.

The Serengeti is the ancestral land of the Maa people, which include the Maasai, who still practise many of their ancient rituals on the land.

Sample Itinerary:

The Essentials Tour - 8 days and 7 nights

Our Essentials Tour packs as much as we possibly can into an 8 day safari. The magic will begin even before you arrive as you descend over the peaks of the mystical Mount Kilimanjaro to be greeted by your guide and whisked off to your first lodge for a true Tanzanian welcome.

The next day you will head off for the serenity of the

expansive Tarangire River plains for a game drive amongst the awe-inspiring elephants and the graceful giraffes that thrive in this well-protected national park.

En route to the southern border of the Serengeti, you will spend a day of culture interacting with two of the last remaining tribes that live in harmony with nature: the warm and friendly Hadzabe hunter-gatherers and the Datoga cattlemen.

This tour also takes you to the world heritage site, the Ngorongoro crater, a breathtaking experience as you reach the rim 600 metres above the 22km wide caldera from where elephants appear as tiny rocks in the distance.

Heading north for the second half of your safari, you will

camp near Ndutu Lake to game drive the surrounding short grasslands, marshes and plains. In February and March, the plains are home to the millions of wildebeest and zebra of the great migration and if you like big cats, then this is the place to be where lions, cheetahs and leopards thrive.

Finally, we will return to the airport. We are sure you will not be in any rush to leave so on the way we will take you to a Maasai village where you can browse for souvenirs or just relax and reflect on what we hope will have been the trip of a lifetime.
