About US

To know more about us is to understand we have built a reputation for creating authentic safari experiences. We designed them to explore the natural beauty of Tanzania, all while protecting and making a lasting impact on the land, wildlife and local communities in which we operate.


Sassabi Expeditions is a local, family-owned tour operator born out of a passion to share the extraordinary country in which we’ve been lucky to call home.


Tanzania is a country full of natural splendour, astounding wildlife, seductive beaches, charming ancient towns and world-renowned archaeological sites – making it the ultimate bush and beach destination. From walking the open plains of the Tarangire National Park with the Maasai, to snorkelling the turquoise waters of Zanzibar and even pin-pointing the best time of year to catch the Serengeti’s Great Migration, we’ve spent years crafting a kaleidoscope of experiences to help our guests check off every item on their bucket list

About us


Financial Protection

You don’t take chances with any safari company when it comes to you sending money to Africa, we want to assure you that your money are safe with us. When dealing with us, we have ensured that our suppliers also conform to higher standards of financial protection just as us so that you have peace of mind.

Sassabi Expeditions makes every effort to protect your finances. We ensure our suppliers of accommodation have default insurance in an unlikely event that they fail to deliver the accommodation in your itinerary and the service that you paid for.

We encourage our guests to come with cash in small quantities (large notes receive a higher exchange rate). ATM machines are readily available. Advanced payments can be made. Credit cards are welcomed in large hotels.

Our secure payments methods

Our methods of payments are safe. We have two safe methods of payments. Once you choose your payment method you will be re-routed from our website to a secure third party environment where you can complete your payment in just a few easy steps.

Alternatively, our guests can also choose to pay via direct bank transfer details. Checkout our FAQs to learn more. 

Normally  These payments take approximately 72 hours before they are credited to our bank accounts in Tanzania. You will be notified immediately when the money is received.

Travel Insurance

We highly recommend that you purchase travel insurance before coming to Africa. This will help you in case of an unlikely event which cancels your trip to Africa. Depending on where you come from, we may help make recommendations. We recommend that you consult your professional agents in your country about travel insurance before departing. Having emergency medical insurance while on safari will give you full peace of mind.

Travelers Review

Here is one from a favorite past client:

In 2008, twenty of us spent three weeks with Jeremy and Elias on a Tanzania safari. Since then, my husband and I have traveled the world, visiting over 40 countries. The safari we experienced with what is now officially Sassabi Expeditions, remains at the VERY TOP of our many incredible trips.

Nancy J. (USA)

The entire experience was beyond my expectations. A true A+++ experience. From the greeting by Jessica, our coordinator to meeting our guide, Joseph, who made us feel so welcome (Karibu Sana in Swahili) the entire trip. To the attention to detail for amazing lodging, a great safari vehicle, and family+VIP experience. I can’t think of one thing I would change for a better safari experience. It was a 100+++ experience. 

Thank you to the entire Sassabi team!
