Long Way Expedition was founded by Abubakar Omar and his wife Ann Abubakar in 2017. Abuu has travelled a long and varied road before he started his own business. Born in Tanzania in the small town of Tanga, not far from the Indian Ocean, Abu knew since his childhood that he was born to work with people. Abuu worked for over 15 years for several of the major tour companies in Tanzania. Abuu’s expertise with nature is reflected in the intense bush experience that Long Way Expedition specializes in.What sets him apart from others is his bush experience, he knows the seasons, the land and it’s secrets and he will share the lives of the animals with you,while Ann has been working as hotels manager for over 10yrs in Arusha also dealing with booking and reservation.
We understand what makes your trip unforgetable, and that is why our safari guides are also our best assets and our strength against our competitors. We have hand picked safari guides who are not only experienced but also trained professionals. This gives us a notch above the rest. We believe that we need not talk much about ourselves because our records speak volumes about us.
No mixed groups, no competing for views with strangers, and no conflicting interests. With Long way expeditions, you will enjoy the exclusive use of a private vehicle providing for maximum flexibility, comfort and wildlife viewing.
We have chosen to specialize in Tanzania, which makes us experts in the local wildlife and regions, and allows us to create a special and unique experience for our clients (as opposed to other "generalist" companies offering standard tours to many different African countries).
Adventure Game Drives:
Many companies shuffle their clients only through the most heavily trafficked areas on the normal "safari circuit" - but we will take you deep into the isolated wilderness where these packaged tour companies don't go!
We offer early morning (before sunrise) game drives to witness the predators in action and also the herbivores in more active states. We'll pack a picnic breakfast to enjoy in the pristine ambience of the bush while the package tours are having their 'buffet' meals back at the lodge.
Signature "Fly In - Drive Out or Drive In Fly Out Itineraries":
The best way to begin your safari is to skip long vehicle transfers and instead take a short flight into the middle of the action - right away! On your very first day on safari, we will fly you into the majestic Serengeti to witness this famous park's teeming wildlife firsthand.
Unlimited Game Drives:
Each safari offers unlimited game drives with no mileage restrictions and exclusive access to the most secluded and wildlife abundant areas in Tanzania. Most other companies operate shorter, limited game drives and never end up making it far from the lodge - or the other tourists.
By choosing,Long way expeditions you have the luxury of setting your own agenda (with our help) and you won't be shuffled through the rigid itineraries and fixed timetables that other companies often require you to adhere to..
Wildlife Viewing Maximized:
All our itineraries are strategically designed on a monthly basis to take advantage of seasonal wildlife concentrations, and all safaris incorporate specific game drives to witness the great Wildebeest Migration.
Variety of Activities:
Choose from a large selection of unique optional activities including authentic cultural tours, scenic flights, field talks, balloon safaris, bush picnics and walking safaris.
You are in complete control of when, where and how long you game drive, what animals you look for, how long you stay at each sighting and when you return - it's all up to you
Professional Driver Guides:
On safari you will receive complete and focused attention by your professional driver-guide, with the expert knowledge and skill required to make sure you have the trip of a lifetime Safety: Your safety is of ultimate importance, as well as your comfort and peace of mind.
