Wildlife Safari Tariffs are based on per person per day and vary depending on the parks, Cultural Safaris where more time is spent outside the parks, tend to be less.
Lodge / Tented Camp Safaris (lodging safaris); are a mix of lodges and permanent tented camps. These Tariffs are fully inclusive of accommodation with all meals, vehicle with knowledgeable driver-guide, and all park fees.
Camping Safaris; except for a luxury camping safaris they are usually for budget travelers, they are safaris that travelers camp with small tents in an open campsite whether in a public campsite, or in a special campsite.
Swala Safaris principal activities are wildlife safaris, mountain climbing, beach holiday, cultural safaris, and walking safaris. Wildlife safaris are primarily in the national parks of Tanzania. Serengeti and Ngorongoro are world – famous as the amount of wildlife in these areas is exceptional, Ngorongoro and Serengeti are also among the world heritage sites and world natural wonders. Mt. Kilimanjaro and Arusha National Parks are excellent hiking areas, as are Lake Natron and Oldoinyo L’Engai, the Ngorongoro Highlands, Embakai, and Udzungwa National Park.
Our preferred choice of accommodation is small private lodges that have the ambience of the quintessential Africa. Safari groups are small. Itineraries are often custom – made.
Safaris are arranged to the chimpanzee parks of Mahale Mountains, Gombe Stream on the shores of Lake Tanganyika and Rubondo Islands National Parks in Lake Victoria, and the national parks in southern Tanzania; Ruaha, Mikumi, Katavi and Kitulo National Parks and Selous Game Reserve. For those who want to get away from the main tourist routes there is Mkomazi National Park and Saadani National Park in Tanga. It is easily accessible (two to three hours) from Kilimanjaro and Arusha and is off the tourist route. Mkomazi National Park is having all members of the Big Five and Saadani national Park is the only park that extends from land to sea, with vehicle and boat game drive opportunities. Board in any lodge along the beach of the Saadani or Ushongo and enjoy seeing elephants coming to swim and shower themselves with their trunks while sunbathing.
