We’re passionate about Tanzania. About its natural beauty, its cultural heritage and its amazing people. And we want to pass on our passion – we want you to experience Africa close-up!
Soaring Flamingo Company Limited is a safari tour operation specializing in safaris in Tanzania’s Northern Circuit. We also offer a broad range of trekking tours and organize trips to all of Tanzania including Zanzibar. We are fully licensed by the Tourist Agents Licensing Authority (TALA) of Tanzania.
All of our safari and trekking guides are licensed and very experienced. They have already been working as tour guides for safaris in the Northern Circuit for several years and participate in guide training. Moreover, as local citizens they are familiar with the secrets of the areas you plan to visit and will provide you with valuable insights into local life. In addition to their native tribal language and Swahili, our guides are fluent in English and French. We also have access to a pool of guide assistants that speak various other languages.
Not only in operations but also in management functions Soaring Flamingo is predominantly run by local staff. Creating ownership is important to us and all of our employees have an active say in important company decisions. Also, through shareholding, our employees have a major (46%) stake in the future of our business.
The comfort of our customers is important to us and we do everything possible to ensure that you can truly enjoy your journey with us. That’s why we use modern equipment specially designed for this purpose. Our safari vehicles are custom made 4x4 Toyota Land Cruisers with the possibility of opening the roof and big windows for better wildlife viewing. They are equipped with electrical outlets to allow you to charge your mobile phones and cameras along the journey. And, since going on safari makes you hungry, we ensure your comfort by providing snacks, water, and tea.
Our name was inspired by the hidden beauty of Empakaai Crater, where Flamingos regularly flock for feeding. It reflects the intent of our company to provide access not only to the most popular places in Tanzania’s Northern Circuit, but also to the hidden wonders off the beaten path in this incredible country. In doing so, we hope to promote a fuller understanding and a more complete experience.
