ABOUT GILMAG SAFARIS

We are a Tanzanian Company.

We were born here, live here and work here; we know Tanzania and Kenya. When you purchase a Gilmag Safaris package you are dealing directly with the company providing the services, not with an agent shopping for services in Africa on your behalf. Our guides are all local, knowledgeable and indigenous to this part of Africa – we do not employ foreign guides as we believe the best people to show you our homeland has to be a Tanzanian born and bred!

WHY GILMAG SAFARIS?

The Directors (Gilbert and Maguke) are considered as employees of GILMAG SAFARIS, and our MOTTO is; Thou shall serve with a SMILE, ENERGY and PASSION

  • PERSONAL SERVICE: WE CARE!

We believe in personalized service, attention is given to detail and every trip is special to us. At Gilma, people book as clients but leave as friends. At Gilma, you do not have to book your trip of a lifetime on a group departure. At Gilma, your safari can be just that – YOUR SAFARI (with a personal driver /guide and vehicle)!

  • RIGHT PRICES:

We provide quality safari at the right price. We do not compete with operators who charge less as they realize what their services are worth! Moreover, in Africa, you do not have to pay the most to get the best! We believe our prices to be affordable and the best available.

  • SUPERIOR VEHICLES:

We are the ‘Trend Setters’ and new child on the BLOCK. Our 4WDs consist of Toyota Land Cruisers; we do not use minibuses for safaris.

Among other things, we pride ourselves in our unique vehicle designs. We are therefore, proud to be the trend-setters that other tour operators have seen fit to try and emulate.

Our 4WDs are equipped with HF radio, a set of referral books, a first aid kit, a cool box, a pair of binoculars & have flip-flop rooftop- ideal for game viewing and photography! Our 4WD vehicles are well maintained and can go just about anywhere in just about any conditions!

  • FLEXIBLE PROGRAMMES:

Approximately 80% of our business is generated from tailor made programmes (from fly-in safaris, to drive in safaris & walking safaris; from palm fringed beaches to mountain peaks). We offer maximum flexibility on the programme you want, for the dates convenient to you, and the accommodation style you prefer! That means maximum enjoyment on your safari – after all it is YOUR holiday and we will do our best to ensure we exceed your expectations!

We have a couple of representatives to assist with timely responses especially in areas where time differences result in delayed responses and also to help you avoid expensive phone calls to us. So, we will help plan, advise and implement that really special safari for you!

  • WE DELIVER!

At Gilmag, we use simplicity to its finest and are straightforward in telling you about what to expect on your safari and implement the promises we make. We deliver!

Should you choose us to be your hosts in Tanzania, be assured you will have the time of your life – you will be closer to nature, to the sounds & rhythms of the wild. You will get to see the “Real Africa”, the way it is meant to be seen. Interact with local people, learn about nature and the environment, and marvel at the splendid wildlife. You are sure to have an unforgettable and wonderful experience – and sure to come back time and time again, as many of our clients do

  • DRIVERS / GUIDES:

We have knowledgeable, nature-loving, careful drivers and friendly guides.Our guides are very well disciplined, polite, careful and love their work.
Without a good driver / guide (the most important aspect of a safari), a safari isn’t a safari! At least NOT a “Gilma Safaris”

  • OUR MOUNTAIN GUIDES:

They are the most important aspect of a trek. without their sternness on your pace, their coordination with the other crew, their encouragement when you so much feel like quitting, their hand on your shoulder when you feel sick or their bright smile when you are at the summit…. the trek will not be enjoyable!.
