Welcome to Luna Safari

Awarded Best Safari Company 2024 in the Travel & Tourism Awards.


As well as Safari Tour Operator of the Year 2024 .


Best Family Run Safari Company in the MEA Business Awards .


And we're Tripadvisor Travelers Choice Winners two years running.


In addition to being featured by the world's most trusted travel publication - Conde Nast Traveler.


We're a little family-run safari company with a lot of heart.


We're small and that's how we like it. It's what allows us to deliver unforgettable handmade safari and beach holidays that will take your breath away and with the sparkling personal service that we're famous for.


You'll find some lovingly crafted ready made itineraries throughout our website, which have already been sprinkled with our signature Luna magic. Or if you prefer we can happily tailor-make you something incredible from scratch based upon your timeframe and budget.


In order for us to keep our signature personal sparkle and for us to be able to put our whole hearts in to what we do for you, we lovingly build and deliver a maximum of 10 safari bookings per month, meaning our very special Tanzania Safari's are limited.


A percentage of the cost of every safari with us goes directly in to our Luna Foundation, supporting children and families from some of the poorest backgrounds across Tanzania.


With all of our Luna Safari Love and with this country's gorgeous and warm African heart, it is with open arms that we welcome you in to the wild.


Michaela, Alfani, Arlo, Milo & Family

Here at Luna Safari we eat, sleep and breathe Africa, so much so that we’re sure every member of our team have Big Five shaped footprints on our hearts.

We know the country like the back of our hands and we only offer itineraries that we believe in with our whole heart.

We Tailor-make our itineraries based upon your time frame, budget and dreams of Africa. We’ll work with you from the very beginning to make

sure that your time with us is something incredibly special and sprinkled with magic.

You can also mix a safari with a Kilimanjaro Climb, a trip to Zanzibar Island and a whole burst of culture.

Click through to view our signature Budget, Mid-range, Luxury & Honeymoon Itineraries....

Arguably the Greatest Wildlife Show on Earth.

All Luna Safari Itineraries can be customized in order to follow the Great Wildebeest Migration of Serengeti, so that we can ensure you catch a glimpse of the spectacle.

We specialise in epic treks to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. Also known as the roof of Africa, it’s both Africa’s tallest mountain and the

world’s highest free-standing peak.

As well as passing through an incredible array of climatic zones from Mountain Forest to Arctic, you’ll challenge yourself and your

senses.

With an 92% success rate on average, our dedicated and infinitely kind guides will get you to summit with their endless knowledge, support and a lot of laughs along the way.

Waiting like a diamond in the crystal coral waters of the Indian Ocean and only an hour's flight from the mainland, Zanzibar is easily added on to any safari and/or Kilimanjaro itinerary.

Harbouring a deep and sad history relating to the slave trade but now offering a beautiful and relaxed Rastafarian beach life – Zanzibar offers

not only some of the most stunning beaches this world has ever seen but also a cultural melting pot of Swahili, European and Arabian heritage.

Finish up your gorgeous African Safari Adventure next to sparkling infinity pools, take a dip in the bathwater-warm Indian Ocean and sip cocktails from a coconut.

We're so excited to announce that we are now proudly partnered with Nairobi's Giraffe Manor.

One of the most Instagramed properties in the world, made so incredibly special and unique by Its resident herd of Rothschild Giraffe, poking their long necks in to the windows daily hoping for a treat.

We are super proud that we can now include a stay at Giraffe Manor in any of our safari itineraries so that you can enjoy the most magical setting and the most Bucket List breakfast in the world - just ask us how.

Our Story

Founded by husband and wife team Michaela & Alfani, Luna Safari started from very humble beginnings and is built on more love than we could ever truly put in to words.


After falling in love beneath the glow of an African Super Moon and moving to Tanzania with just $500 and a dream, It's taken a lot of hard work and dedication to get to where we are today.


We put everything we had in to building our little family safari company and we still do and we couldn't be happier that we never gave up......


At Luna Safari, community is at the heart of all that we do.


Its no secret that to this day Tanzania remains one of the poorest countries in the world and that many locals in Tanzania are seriously lacking in food, clean water access, school supplies and sanitation.


We are incredibly proud that a percentage of the cost of every safari holiday with us goes directly in to our Luna Foundation, supporting children and families from some of the poorest backgrounds across Tanzania.

We can happily include a visit to one of the life changing projects you're directly helping to support simply by travelling with us. If you'd like to incorporate that in to your adventure, just let us know.


Our Guides

Our guides are selected for their exceptional guiding skills, driving skills, personability and their impeccable ability to spot animals along the way.


Here at Luna Safari we're one big family and you'll be treated like such throughout every game drive.


Our guides are fun & knowledgeable, as well as incredibly passionate about what they do and it shows.


We're super proud of our team and can't wait to meet you. Come and experience our famous Luna Safari hospitality for yourself.


Our Vehicles

You'll travel in safety & style throughout with the use of our state-of-the-art and fully serviced 4x4 Land cruisers.


Equipped with pop-up roof for optimal wildlife viewing, an ice cold fridge for those all-important refreshments and charger ports for your cameras, phone and electronic devices.


All of our safari's are private meaning you can ride through the bush beautifully to the beat of your own African drum with your own jeep and guide throughout.

Our On Board Hampers

We're super proud and exited to be able to say that not only will you enjoy delicious and freshly prepared meals at breakfast & dinner within your beautiful camps & lodges. ....


You'll also chow down on the most mouth watering meals on while on the road thanks to our brand new and widely loved hot lunch hampers.


Freshly prepared hot lunches on board - truly riding in style and absolute comfort... popping out our picnic blankets wherever we are and enjoying hot, fresh lunches al-fresco.

No lunchboxes with Luna - it's all about the piping hot, delicious delights.

Enjoy our signature champagne welcome
