A wonderful Safari across Tanzania, one of Africa’s very special places – awarded year after year as Africa’s greatest safari location and with good reason.

This 8-night/9-day package has been put together by Husband & Wife Team Michaela and Khalfani, owners of a beautiful little family-run safari company. Their amazing team will take care of you throughout. We love to support women/family-run businesses

As well as an incredible wildlife experience through Big Five country, witnessing the world’s most majestic animals closer than most can ever dream of, you will also experience an ancient and rich cultural journey.

You will visit a children’s project that you are directly helping to support by travelling with us. Luna Safari works with five schools and sponsors a number of girls so that they have a chance at a good education. You will spend time in a Maasai village learning about their culture.  You will have a walking tour of Arusha Town, which includes a visit to the vibrant central market and the Maasai market. These experiences give you a true taste of Africa.

Tanzania is the home of the Luna Safari team, and it is obvious they live and breathe it. They have handpicked their personal favourite accommodations, which provide a beautiful sprinkle of luxury while also retaining their spectacular and rustic Out of Africa Charm.

This is a wildlife-filled, culturally-infused African dream safari.
