About Us

Specializing in Tailor Made Safaris to Tanzania

Amazing Tanzania is one of the pioneering safari operators in Tanzania, established in 1988 under the name “Gibbs Farm Safaris”. Originally operating as a sister company to Gibbs Farm and Ndutu Safari Lodge as a tour operator linking the two properties and its own mobile camping facility, we began by putting together the perfect safari to the northern circuit. In 2003 the company expanded into a fully-fledged tour operator under the new brand “Amazing Tanzania”. Today it’s a respected independent Tanzanian tour operator specializing in tailor made safaris to Tanzania.

Bespoke Itineraries

We know that no two safaris are the same because no two people are the same. Depending on your interests, time, budget, and accommodation preferences, we will put together an itinerary to guarantee the ideal safari getaway.

We know the northern circuit inside out, allowing us to create the perfect itinerary no matter the time of year. Our directors have personally visited all the accommodations we recommend, ensuring the best experiences for our clients.

Our Boutique Approach

We offer a personalized service, expert advice, and provide valuable backup throughout your trip. Our directors are involved in every itinerary and meet all our clients personally, ensuring we're available for queries anytime.

Our Camp

Our exclusive-use safari camp accommodates groups of 6 people and is built in the best location for your trip. The camp is for your use only and comes with incredible 3-course lunches and 4-course dinners, providing luxury in the wild.

4x4 Vehicles

All of our vehicles are professionally maintained to the highest level and equipped to make your journey the most comfortable and safe, ensuring an enjoyable safari experience for our clients.

Social Responsibility

Our camp’s crew is employed from the nearby village in Thloma, Karatu. For every person who comes on safari with us, a donation goes from their behalf to our chosen charity, supporting the local community.

Our Guides

Meet The Professional Guides

All of our guides have been personally selected by the Amazing Tanzania management and must have a minimum of 10 years’ experience and proven training on all aspects of safari guiding. Our leading guides have been trained by the top institutions and not only do they have a wealth of knowledge, but they also understand how to get the perfect photograph, approach animals, have impeccable manners, and know how to have fun! Many of them have also travelled to Europe and the US, so they know how to work with cultural barriers you may experience.

His early bush experience and expertise in animal behavior fostered a love for wildlife and inspired him to pursue a career in this field. He completed wildlife courses in Tanzania and gained valuable insights in guiding safaris with large commercial safari companies. With over 25 years of experience, Jombi tailors personalized itineraries for his guests. He caters to the interests, time, and budgets of his guests in private safaris. Safari locales include all the parks in Tanzania, Zanzibar Island, with its rich history and magnificent beaches, and stunning Rwanda where you can visit the magnificent Mountain Gorillas in their natural habitat.
