We are a privately owned safari company specializing in big game hunting and photographic safari. Our headquarters is situated in Arusha, Tanzania.

Arusha is where your traditional East African safari will begin and end. The name of a small village in Nothern Tanzania. This is where our company had its first hunting concession. The name’’Eskesh’’is a Datoga name and means ‘’white foot’’. It so happens that the soil in that area is volcanic ash from many years ago and is grey/white in color and the dust that forms is very white. When you walk through this dust your feet become white, hence the name ‘’white foot’’

The hunter/gatherers are a nomadic tribe of the Datooga people based in the northern volcanic highlands near Mount Hanang in the Manyara Region, Tanzania.

Hunting in Tanzania

5-21-21_TANZ_WS_2021_-3.jpg


Tanzania has three classes of hunting licenses. A hunter must choose a ten-day, sixteen-day, or twenty-one-day license, and a larger variety of species are available on the longer licenses. For example, a hunter may hunt up to two buffalo and a variety of plains game on a ten-day license but must buy a sixteen-day license to hunt crocodiles and waterbuck and a twenty-one-day license to hunt elephant, sable, roan, lion, leopard, oryx, greater kudu, and eland. In addition to the license fee, trophy fees are charged for each species taken, as well as other government fees, which can add significantly to the safari cost.

The camp is 182 kilometers from Arusha and takes a 3-hour drive. You will be driven to camp via luxury SUV on the first day, the morning of your Safari from Arusha and you will be driven back on your last day, usually in the evening.

The option to fly via air charter from Arusha to our bush airstrip is available. All charter flights are an added expense and are NOT included in the cost of your basic safari rate. The charter flight begins on the first day at the hunting camp. Clients return by air charter to Arusha at the end of their safari (optional).

The Tanzanian hunting season is from 1st July through 31st December. The long monsoon rainy season is April / May, while the short rains usually fall between November and December. There is a minimal variation in temperature as Tanzania is located close to the equator. Masai land can be very cold at night, especially during June, July, and August.

The official language, as well as the lingua franca of Tanzania, is Swahili. All officials and some people in town speak English as well as Swahili, in addition to their own dialects. Our Professional Hunters speak English and Swahili.
