Our safaris and/or mountain climbs involve travelling in some of the more remote areas of East Africa where wild animals such as elephants, buffalo, hippo, lion, leopard, hyena, crocodile and other reptiles roam. Many services common in your home area (such as communications; telephones; medical assistance; evacuation in the face of danger, illness or injury; ground, water or air transport etc.) may be unavailable or provided at a lower standard than that available to you in your home country. The standard of roads, for example, can be such that travel is impossible during or after heavy rain or floods. In many areas, it is not possible for an aircraft to land at an airstrip at night, even in a medical emergency.

When it comes to wildlife viewing, please be advised there are no guarantees nor does Atasafaris Plc Tours and Safaris guarantee the viewing of 100% of all the animal and bird species found in Tanzania.
