Wild Gaze Safaris

Wild Gaze Safaris who are based in Tanzania are one of the regions most experienced and thorough safari operators. Not satisfied with conducting regular standard tours, they have travelled the length and breadth of the country to find the most sublime. Exploring every destination to ensure that what they recommend is not only based on first-hand experience but that every supplier in the itinerary are up to the same standards. This authenticity is something that Ernest Lugalla, the owner of the company, is insistent upon.

The Safaris

Mountain climbing and safari is the mainstay of Wild Gaze Safaris and as such no corners are cut when it comes to client safety and services. Ernest explains that they spend considerable funds to make their equipment as safe and reliable as possible and that their staff are the best trained in the field.

The activities have been packaged in a selection of safaris, each one offering an exceptional Tanzanian experience at an unbeatable value. Each safari is flexible though and Ernest and his team are always up for a challenge if there is something different and unique that a client is looking to enjoy.

The Guarantees

Apart from adventures you’ll remember for the rest of your life Wild Gaze Safaris also guarantee every departure with a minimum of two passengers. Whether a safari tour has a dozen people or just two, they operate on the scheduled date and with the prescribed itinerary, featuring the same standard of tour.

Also, thanks to Ernest and his team having developed close working relationships with their hotel partners and being vigilant on their facilities, cuisine and service, there is a best room guarantee. Depending on what package is selected, the rooms could be in well located city hotels, keeping you in the heart of everything or in a safari lodge located in the heart of the wilderness. Or perhaps both.
