Founded in 2007, Amani Afrika was born out of a genuine desire to provide travelers with the authentic, personalized services they deserve. There were too many large travel agencies and tour operators, but not enough boutique companies that would (could) cater for discerning travellers looking for a truly tailor-made travel experience in East Africa. That was the motivation for Godwin Temba, a kind-spirited Tanzanian, to established Amani Afrika. Joined by his nomadic Canadian wife, Vivian, who had lived in Asia, America and Australia before settling in Tanzania, Amani Afrika provides an all-in-one solution for travellers with its comprehensive travel consultation, trip planning, tour organizing and ground handling services in Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda. Having first-hand experience with the destinations and real relationships with the service providers give us an unparalleled edge. It is a dream for us to be able to live and breathe the “safari air” in this part of the world every day. And we want to share our dream with you.

A safari to Africa is certainly not an excursion. It is rarely just a trip or a tour. It is an odyssey.

The novelty of a luxurious under canvas experience. The unique combination of exhilarating encounters and memorable moments will surely leave you changed—forever.

Don’t leave such a grand occasion up to chance. Let a specialist help you curate and design your experiences.

Witness

on Earth

The thundering hooves of wildebeest, the wondrous sight of birth—the Great Migration is a year-round phenomenon. The antelope herds follow the cycle of nature as they conceive, roam, gestate, calve and raise a new generation. Let us help you plan a “Great Migration safari” where you’ll get to follow the herds and witness the actions according to your period of travel.

Calving Season

Nature has a rhythm. The wildebeest herds innately follow a life cycle. After their annual sojourn to the north, they return home to the southern plains of Serengeti in Tanzania to bear offspring and nurture their young. And a new cycle begins.

Migration Season

When the grasses dry and the dust settles in Central Serengeti, the wildebeest and their companions follow the scent of thunderstorms that drift northwards, in a mission to search for fresh pastures, despite treacherous conditions that lie ahead.

Wondering About Returning

Since I returned I was published by National Geographic and Outdoor Photographer. I LOVED the Serengeti. That felt like home to my soul. My experience with Amani Afrika was unbeatable, and given the chance to repeat it, I'd LOVE to!

Well Taken Care Of

We met the 17 people in charge of getting us up and down the mountain at Machame Camp. The sheer number enlisted in support for two may sound excessive, but carrying basic shelter, bedding, food for three solid meals each day, plus cooking equipment and safety kits is no small task. Amani Afrika doesn’t cut corners or comforts, particularly regarding food. We even witnessed our own well-fed team quietly offering extra food and tea to other porters in need.

Defying Kilimanjaro Sized Odds

Temba has successfully summited Africa’s tallest mountain over 200 times, and one time climbed up and down Kilimanjaro in 24 hours. Fair pay and safe working conditions have porters vying for the chance to work with Amani. Fortunately, Augustino and Ernest (deaf youths from the vocational training workshops Temba runs) solidified their place on Amani’s team and became the company’s most sought-after porters.

Best Vacation

We visited Tanzania and the arrangements were done by Amani. Right from day one, Vivian and Godwin tailored the safari to our desires. The arrangements were great and they choose the places we loved. They went out of their way to deliver us our luggage which arrived a day later. This was the best vacation we had in a long long time and Amani made it special.

Very Accommodating

I went on a safari in Tanzania with my friends. It was such a great trip that I decided to come back and do a gorilla trek with my boyfriend. Now that I have been to Tanzania, Kenya and Rwanda with Amani Afrika, I can totally vouch for their services. In the lead up to the trips, Vivian's customer service was outstanding. Her replies were always quick, detailed, and she was very accommodating whenever I wanted to make changes/adjustments to her proposed itinerary.

Trip of a Lifetime

A safari in northern Tanzania with Amani Afrika was recommended to us by friends. Now we would like to recommend the company to the world. Due to careful and personal planning by Vivian and Godwin all contingencies and amenities for our trip were thought of in advance. Our guide's knowledge, professionalism, attentiveness, skill as a driver, and genuine kindness made our trip dynamic and fun.
