For many, an African safari is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, and we believe that genuine experience and expertise are critical when building a quality safari.
We have always been about your best interests and your personal tastes. Our safaris are created uniquely for you. We will surpass your expectations no matter if you: want to summit Kilimanjaro, interact with indigenous people, marvel at the wildlife, plan an exciting honeymoon, special event, or dive and snorkel in the brilliantly colored Zanzibar reefs.
We have spent years building an unmatched knowledge about the region and we want to share this with you while planning your adventure. We believe our guests should have the option to discover East Africa on a more intimate level close to nature and far from tourist crowds. Unlike many travel companies, we have the means to place you in remote, private, and exclusive concessions that cater to a minimal number of guests.
From its inception, Barking Zebra chose to blaze a new trail in providing travel services to Africa. We have built a lean operation in Tanzania that highlights flexibility and specialization.
We inform, educate, plan, and offer assistance so that you can maximize your travel pleasure and minimize travel anxiety. We have built an excellent team of dedicated staff and guides, ensuring your travel details are passionately delivered.
These are the principles at the core of Barking Zebra Tours. They guide our direction, and we instill them within every adventure we assist in creating. We’ve Broken from the herd; now it’s your turn. Embark with us on that journey of a lifetime!
Our family of five, grandparents, son and spouse, and 10-year-old grandson, was treated to the adventure of a lifetime thanks to the meticulous planning and execution of Ria and her staff at Barking Zebra Tours. Every detail, airport, pickup and transfer, safari, hike, Maasai Boma visit, was flawlessly executed, allowing us to immerse ourselves in the wonder of Tanzania and its people! We would urge anyone seeking an unforgettable safari and cultural experience to contact Barking Zebra Tours.
We just experienced a safari of a lifetime. Barking Zebra Tours exceeded our wildest expectations, from the meticulous organizational skills of Ria, who planned the structure to the most minute detail, to the incredible source of knowledge and understanding of the Serengeti, of our guide and driver Godson, and our exemplary facilitator Emmanuel , who met us at Kilimanjaro Airport . The Barking Zebra team not only provided a 'best in the industry' service and attention to detail but made sure that all of our needs were met. Without hesitation, we recommend Barking Zebra to anyone seeking a unique safari adventure.
We just returned from a safari in Tanzania and Zanzibar with Barking Zebra Tours that took us from the game parks at the foot of Kilimanjaro to the eastern edge of the Serengeti and finally to the shores of the Indian Ocean. It was fantastic.
The staff in-country were on top of everything from our arrival at the airport to our final departure. Sharp, very friendly, and well-organized - it made us feel cared for.
Our guide was perfect for us - informative, funny, skilled, and caring.
If you are planning to go on safari, this is the company to use. I recommend Barking Zebra without hesitation.
I can’t say enough about the amazing experience we had in Tanzania with Barking Zebra, Emmanuel, Juma, and their whole team. Great selection of lodges and game parks, with first-class service all the way. Most importantly, they were just really great people to spend time with. My highest recommendation!!!
We just returned from our 8 day Safari with Barking Zebra. What an amazing experience! Our guide Godson was so knowledgeable about every park we visited, every animal, bird and insect! We came back with such an appreciation for wildlife! The camps and lodges we stayed exceeded our expectations from the staff to the food to the views! WOW!! We would recommend Barking Zebra to anyone interested in a spectacular vacation!
Our Tanzanian Safari and Zanzibar Beach Honeymoon with Barking Zebra was Priceless! Every attention to detail was addressed to customize our experience from the style of lodging, to our most unique and unforgettable 2nd wedding celebration with the Maasai. We enjoyed every moment of planning our Honeymoon with Ria. We even came home from our honeymoon with a little “Made in Africa” baby surprise! Thank You, Barking Zebra, for creating a trip we will always recall with fondness and utter joy!
