If you are looking for private and “boutique” safaris, that is what Long Way Expeditions specializes in. With us, you will be travelling with a purpose, to experience, understand and protect the environment, and to support the local community. We bring your African dream to life by taking you to the iconic parks of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro, but also to less-visited, remote areas of Tanzania as well as the unique beaches of Zanzibar, Pangani and Mafia island.


Your safari should be a pleasurable experience that you remember for the rest of your life. At Long Way Expeditions, we tailor make your safari with your personal touch. This starts well before booking your trip.

We have a personal interaction with each of our clients and this is the most important basis for a successful safari trip.

There are numerous tour operators In Tanzania but not many who have connected their lifeblood with the country as we do.  As local Tanzanians we would like you to feel that this is your home-away-from-home.


Long Way Expeditions is available to you (almost) around the clock and also over the weekend. Use the many contact options such as our contact form, send us an email, call us, or connect via WhatsApp with text, voice call or video call. Fast, informative and above all, reliable, you get all the help you need.


We specialize in Tanzania – we were born here, we know the bush and its secrets. Most of the big companies take their clients through the most trafficked roads in the national parks.  Our style is to go into more isolated areas where most of these companies rarely go!


By booking with Long Way Expeditions you support the local community as we are support various projects such as tree planting, save-the-rhino, empowerment projects, etc.  So when you book with us 5% goes back to the communities we are part of.


The best time to find game is in the early morning and early evening when the animals are most active.  You will enjoy a picnic breakfast on the beautiful savannah landscape, while the other companies’ tourists are having their buffet meals at the lodge.


We have additional excursions which include authentic cultural tours, scenic flights, night game drives, canoeing, hot air balloons, Kilimanjaro day hikes, bush walks and picnics, and school visits.


There are no questions like, “Where is the best place to sit during the game drive?” or “When do we go back to the hotel?”  Yours is a private safari, with maximum flexibility for you to decide on your daily activities.  You’re in control of when to start the game drive, will you do a full day game drive or come back to the lodge for a hot lunch?  Go back again for the evening game drive or go for the sunset, it’s all up to you.  Your private 4×4 Land Cruiser can take you anywhere!


By choosing Long Way Expeditions expect to have the luxury of planning your own program with our support. You’ll avoid the tight itineraries and fixed programs that most companies expect you to follow.  Our safari itineraries are designed according to the wildlife seasonal movement and concentrations. We follow the animals!


From the day you land at Kilimanjaro airport (JRO) to the day you leave you will receive personal attention by your professional driver guide to make sure your lifetime dream of safari comes true.
