We are a self-established, self-motivated company based in Arusha, Tanzania, East Africa with a contact in Los Angeles, California. Our dedication is to provide you with not only one of the most rewarding, positive and memorable travel experiences of your life, but also the BEST combination of SERVICE, SUPPORT and PRICE that can be found. Because we are a small and personal organization, and not a large U.S. based company with massive overhead, we can offer this combination.
Founded by Kapanya Kitaba and Terry Richter, we are backed by years of widely varied experience. Through that experience, along with our dedication and commitment, we strive to establish special relationships with our clients... the kind of relationships that form lifelong friendships.
We want you to go on that adventure you've always dreamed of. Take the journey that's always been a fantasy and experience for yourself what life, and the world, has to offer... YOU CAN DO IT!
