Incredible Value

No one else in the industry offers our combination of quality hotels, small group size and culturally immersive itineraries for the tour price we charge. In fact, the most common refrain from our travelers is that they can't believe they received so much for what they paid.

You may find what seems like a similar tour at a lower price with one of our competitors, but when you compare feature-for-feature, we believe it's clear our tour offers more value for your money. When it comes to Tanzania safaris, high quality value can truly be the difference between a good tour and an incredible one.

High Quality Hotels & Lodges

We know from experience that a well-appointed hotel close to the best sightseeing and dining options contributes significantly to the enjoyment of your tour. Many companies book hotels in less than desirable locations in order to save on costs, but this adds plenty of inconvenience and loss of precious time getting to and from the places you want to see.

Others book lower quality hotels so they can charge the lowest prices possible. Our tours always feature high quality, centrally located hotels and lodges that live up to our high standards. And while occasionally our usual standard of accommodations doesn't exist in a location (for example, in very remote spots), you can count on us to make sure you're staying in the best hotel available.

The Prices for our adventure trips in Tanzania

The competition in Tanzania travel industry is very high - there are hundreds of local operators in the popular travel hubs of Moshi and Arusha. Dozens more open every year, and big international travel firms are establishing their branch offices here. It is not surprising - the popularity of Tanzania as a travel destination keeps rising, and tourism is quickly becoming a good choice for investment.

Here at Safari Stride we aim to stand out from other companies. Our strategy is simple, yet effective - we import the best branded equipment and gear for our Kilimanjaro adventures, and we hire professional guides to lead our departures. We provide ongoing training for our guides to ensure they have the top certifications and training in their field. We also offer the newest and most comfortable safari vehicles in the country.Every day, we aim to deliver great service to our clients - from a delicious and nutritious menu on every mountain trek, to on-time transfers for all of our clients. We want to improve in every detail, no matter how small, in order to offer the best service of all tourism operators in Tanzania.

There is, however, one thing that we will never do to become more attractive to clients - we will never dump our prices. Why? because it will ultimately compromise the safety and comfort of our adventures. We are certainly more expensive than most of the local operators, yet the service we provide can only be matched by a handful of high-end tour operators, whose prices are much higher than our own.

It is not just the safety and comfort of our trips that make our prices higher. When travelling with Safari Stride, you can be assured of the following:

We are a fully compliant and transparent company - Safari Stride regularly renews its travel businesses licenses. We also pay taxes every year. Among other things, this money helps to build hospitals, schools, roads and infrastructure throughout the developing nation of Tanzania. While the taxes are steep, we will not avoid paying them and we recognize they go to support meaningful infrastructure throughout the country.

We pay good salaries and wages to our local employees. In an attempt to reduce the costs of an expedition and offer a better price to a client, many tour operators cut salaries to their local staff. Having no other employment prospects, the hopeless workers agree to work for any pay simply to make ends meet.

Why is it a bad idea to book with cheap operators in Tanzania?

Booking with cheap tour operator in Tanzania can come with several risks and downsides. Hera are some reasons why it might be a bad idea:

  • Quality of Services

    Cheap tour operators may cut corners to offer lower prices, and this can negatively impact the quality of the service they provide. For example they may use old or poorly maintained vehicles, hire unqualified guides, or provide inadequate accommodation and meals.

  • Hidden Costs

    Budget tour operators may offer low prices upfront but then add hidden costs such as extra fees for park, permits,transport, and other services. This can make the final costs much higher than expected and lead to unexpected expenses.

  • Lack of Sustainability

    Buying cheap tour packages, a tourist is making a direct contribution to the perpetuation of employee maltreatment in Tanzania. Companies save money and offer low-cost tours to clients usually at the expense of the low-wage workers, who due to poverty and lack of opportunities, will agree to work for any salary - or even tips only. As long as very cheap tours exist, poverty will continue to proliferate - book with Safari Stride and other responsible tour operators instead!

  • Safety

    When booking with budget operators in Tanzania there is a chance of having some unwelcome surprises on the trip, such as: missing oxygen tanks (or may be there, but not functioning), a tent with holes that leak in the rain, meals served which are stale or repetitious over the entire trek. There is also a risk of getting duped by travel scammers

Overall, booking with cheap tour operators in Tanzania can be risky and lead to subpar experiences. It's important to research carefully and choose a reputable and responsible tour operator in Tanzania that offers fair prices and quality services.
