Wildlife safaris in East Africa
Let us arrange your visit to the spectacular home of authentic wildlife safaris. East Africa has unbelievable numbers and species of animals, big and small, and Tano Safaris knows which areas to recommend for the best chances to see them. Game viewing and photo safaris can be enjoyed throughout the year, and we generally suggest at least 3 nights at each location, in order to fully enjoy the experience.
Being on safari should not only focus on seeing the Big Five (Lions, Leopards, Elephants, Cape Buffalos and (Black) Rhinos), but on appreciating the delightful and hurried mongooses, the slow and patient tortoises and terrapins, the noisy hyraxes, curious genets, iridescent dung beetles or comical warthogs, and the colourful birdlife that abounds throughout the region.
On safari, game drives are usually carried out in the early morning and late afternoon, however some animals such as the cheetah are more often encountered during the day. Our private safaris permit you to spend as much time as you like out on a game drive, and our safari vehicles have roof hatches to allow for better game viewing. Some lodges and camps offer game drives in open vehicles, providing for uninterrupted views.
A round the clock activity, game viewing is not limited to the daylight hours. Different animals have different habits, and some areas offer Night Game Drives when animals such as leopards, springhares, pangolins, and aardvarks are more active and more readily seen. Game viewing can also be experienced on boat trips, on bush walks, and on horseback and camelback safaris, while from the air, a hot air balloon safari gives you an entirely unique and exciting perspective of the animals in the savannahs below.
