Tanzania – Big Four

 In Tanzania

July – March

Tanzania is the most important hunting destination in Africa, with huge hunting concessions and a large variety of animal species, both in the Northern planes in Masailand and in South, in the typical African forests. Tanzania is a destination where the big four can be hunted in a single safari. It also the only destination where hunting two or three buffalos in the same safari is possible. For this reason we work in several concession within the country in order to satisfy all possible requirements. Permanent constructions are not permitted within concessions in Tanzania, so all camps are tented with private services and a common dining tent. Some services are separated from the main kitchen.
