About Us

We Don’t Just Love Tanzania, We Live Here

An Tanzania safari is one of life’s most incredible experiences, and yet no two safaris – no two game drives – are ever the same.

From the open plains of the Serengeti to the mysterious waterways of the Okavango Delta… it’s the never-ending array of landscapes, wildlife, and the people you meet there, that keep travellers coming back. In fact, nearly half of our clients are repeat or referral travellers.

Mbassa Adventures is a seasoned travel and wildlife safari company run by a local family of two brothers and their team of safari, mountain, and volunteer experts. When it comes to the Tanzanian experience, we are true experts, and we take pride in knowing Tanzania like the back of our hands. Wildlife safari tours, mountain treks, and beach vacations are all available through us.
We also provide a variety of international volunteer and internship opportunities. On this Tanzanian tour package, we explore every inch of the vast and beautiful safari parks, mountains, white sand beaches, and so many more attractions.


We love Tanzania. Our team of safari experts are all African born and raised. We’ve grown up on game reserves, worked as head rangers and lodge managers, and spend our own holidays on safari; we understand what goes into making every trip to Africa a once in a lifetime experience.

Most travel companies claim to be the best, so here is our public pledge that keeps you, our client, firmly at the heart of what we do.

#1 Independent experts since 2000.

We are Safari Experts, not lodge owners. Clients love our unbiased advice. We are Africa Safari Experts, not owners of lodges and hotels, or operators of tours and activities. We live and breathe providing our clients with unbiased advice and amazing experiences - and they love us for that. See our independent and verified traveller reviews for yourself. All our Safari Experts are permanently based in Africa, are very well travelled, and have extensive first-hand experience in the destinations they recommend. Being based in Africa means we continuously have members of the Mbassa Adventures team discovering and rigorously inspecting new lodges, experiences and activities to ensure they meet our clients’ expectations. Because we’re not owners or operators, our Africa Safari Experts can provide truly independent travel advice and focus exclusively on what is right for you, nothing else.

Your money is safe with us. Our clients are fully covered by our supplier default insurance. Our accreditation bond with the Southern Africa Tourism Services Association (membership number 1070) and our supplier default insurance protect your money in the unlikely event that a travel supplier in your itinerary defaults and fails to deliver the accommodation, scheduled transport or activity service that we booked and paid on your behalf. All our safaris include this insurance – it’s one of the ways we keep your money safe. Another way is our world-class online payment system, which is endorsed by both Visa and Mastercard, and ensures your peace of mind.
