Unique Safaris is a wholly native-owned business, established by Ally and Hussein, so you are supporting a local business that employs over 120 Tanzanians within the company. Having lived in Arusha, Tanzania for most of their lives, Ally and Hussein realised they possessed the passion, knowledge and skill to launch Unique Safaris. They are committed to showcasing the beauty of Tanzania through its astonishing landscapes, dynamic wildlife and cultural experiences.
Founded in 1990, Unique Safaris brings decades of experience in the Tanzania tours with thousands of very satisfied clients who continually refer friends and family to these unique Tanzania tours and private safaris. What makes them “unique” is their focus only on Tanzania and their knowledge of the country is unparalleled by any other safari company in the region. It is not surprising that the company has been listed as the Best of the Serengeti in the National Geographic Adventure Magazine.
The safari guides have a passion for the bush and their policy of providing unlimited daily mileage on all game drives allows them to explore away from the other tourist vehicles to the greatest extent possible.
With the head office in Tanzania and a sales office in the USA, Unique Safaris really takes the time to get to know you and to plan a safari well in advance of your arrival. They specialise in private safaris and custom designed itineraries ensuring you will be doing and seeing what is most important to you to ensure that you and your family experience a lifetime of cherished wildlife memories.

As a wholly Tanzanian owned and operated safari and Tanzania tour company, Unique Safaris has a strong commitment to helping communities benefit from tourism.
This extends beyond just hiring Tanzanians in all operational positions. The team at Unique Safaris seeks NGO projects that are successful and have integrity. Currently, we help to support two significant projects in Tanzania, focusing on health care delivery and education. We carefully selected the following organizations based on their ability to measure their success and their transparency in donations and audits.
School of St. Jude
Everyone wants to visit a school and see children being inspired to learn and face the challenges of their changing world. Unique Safaris has sought out the most successful educational projects in the hopes of inspiring our guests to support the children of Tanzania. There is no educational program more impressive than the School of St. Jude! The school was started by Gemma Sisia in 2002. The goal of the school is to “serve the poorest of the poor” with the greatest potential for educational advancement and impacting the future of Tanzania. The school now serves 1500 students in both primary and secondary campuses and a visit to the school leaves you with no doubt about how your donations are used.
FAME – The Foundation for African Medicine and Education
FAME was founded by Dr. Frank Artress and his wife, Susan Gustafson. The goal of FAME is to enhance the quality of care in East Africa and to create educational opportunities for individuals who express an interest in contributing back to their communities. The FAME medical facilities are located in the Karatu area of the Crater Highlands, between Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara regions and consist of a medical dispensary, a 15-bed hospital facility with intensive care service and a remarkable mobile medical service, allowing the doctors to reach deep into remote rural areas to provide much-needed health care.
