)-- Safari enthusiasts on a limited budget now have a solution with Westside Safari (www.westsidesafari.com). It's a unique travel service company specializing in personalized Tanzanian safaris for private groups and individuals. Itineraries are flexible and safari prices start at $995.
Westside Safari owner Geoff Herbert helps travelers select between accommodation levels and a variety of itineraries to create custom safari packages. Once in Tanzania, travelers control their safari's tempo as desired.
Herbert shares, "I first went on safari in Tanzania in 2001, and fell in love with the beauty of its wildlife, land, and people. I made it my mission to pass my experience onto others.
"I want to be that friend who personally recommends you to go on safari in Tanzania."
Having toured Tanzania extensively and personally inspected all of Westside Safari's lodges, Herbert offers expert advice to clients preparing to travel.
"I'm happy to discuss anything from preparing your travel documents to choosing the right sunscreen," he says.
Upon arrival, travelers are led by a ground operator with 15 years' experience leading Tanzanian safaris, including over 130 expeditions up Mt. Kilimanjaro.
Destinations include Serengeti National Park, famed for its animal migrations, including wildebeest and zebra; Tarangire National Park, recognized by its baobab trees, elephants, and bird of prey; Lake Manyara, packed with baboons, elephants, and varied birdlife; Arusha National Park with the highest concentration of giraffes in the world; and the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area, home of the world's largest caldera and the rare rhinoceros.
Safaris are conducted exclusively from 4x4 Land Cruisers and Land Rovers with large viewing hatches. Since groups are small and private, every passenger is guaranteed their own window seat.
A variety of unique accommodation settings are offered, ranging from comfortable "Two Star" to luxurious "Four Star." A "Mobile Tent Camp" option is also available, allowing travelers to sleep in a private campsite, inside the wildlife-rich parks, with all the amenities of a traditional lodge.
Herbert adds that his safaris focus on "quality wildlife viewing experiences."
"We're designed for the safari enthusiast who wants to stay off the beaten path. We avoid the crowded, touristy areas and every day is spent inside a national park, conservation area, or game park," he says.
To those considering African safari travel Herbert says, "Tanzania is the destination of choice because it's a peaceful country devoted to wildlife conservation. It has the highest concentration of animals, magnificent birdlife, and a fascinating native culture."
Safari prices range $995 to $7,109 per person. For more information, visit www.westsidesafari.com.
