The illustrious Safari, no matter how long or short, has always meant adventure, an element of chance and a potentially uncertain itinerary. Long distances, extreme weather and an occasional absence of roads or bridges have often colluded to make travelling in Africa an intrepid and magical, if unpredictable, experience. However, this changeability also contributed in keeping all but the hardiest guests away, denying the economic benefits that wilderness areas as bio-rich and bounteous as those of Tanzania might deliver in this modern age.

As tourism to Africa became more prevalent, bringing with it vast economic potential, the recognised challenge was to make Tanzania, and in particular the iconic National Parks and teeming Wildlife Reserves, accessible to many who might not otherwise consider themselves adventurous. Many pioneering entrepreneurs, including Coastal, were quick to identify what is fast proving to be the true National Vocation of Tanzania, namely tourism.


With arguably the largest protected areas in the world, home to unique array of bio-diversity and abundant quantities of wildlife, Tanzania natural assets should merit a claim to it being one of the richest countries in the world. To be sustainably so there was a need to make these riches accessible to all sectors of international tourism and the need to develop a true and robust tourism industry capable of bringing economic development to the country as a whole. As a result, tourism initially gave life to a great number of vehicle-based safari companies, who opened up the country to the new surge of visitors, transforming the economy at grass-roots level across large swathes of the country.
