About Sunny Safaris

Sunny Safaris - The Tanzanian Safari Specialists

Karibu! Welcome!

Sunny Safaris have been crafting custom safaris and guided journeys for over 30 years. Our long experience specializing in Tanzania means that we know our beautiful country inside out, and offer our clients the most enticing selection of hand-picked safaris and adventures.

Sunny Safaris is proud to be your host for the duration of your unforgettable African adventure. As passionate ambassadors of our beautiful land, we strive to meet your every need so that your trip lives on in your memory as the best time of your life - until we see you again.

Since he founded Sunny Safaris in 1983, Firoz Ali Suleman’s vision has been to create a safari operation that is environmentally friendly, so that guests can experience the wonders of Tanzania’s nature first hand, leaving only the lightest of footprints.  Our first itineraries were adventure mobile camping safaris, walking safaris and bike safaris, which extended naturally into cultural tourism. Today we can offer the full range of safari experiences. From top-end luxury to adventure camping, all of our tours are guided and catered by our experienced and highly trained staff.


Our bespoke itineraries and packages are as diverse as Tanzania itself. The wide plains of the Serengeti; the snow-capped slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro; the vast wilderness of the Selous Reserve; the lakes, rivers and beaches, all inspire many varied safari experiences.

The options are endless, from luxury safaris in top-of-the-line lodges to tented camps, and the adventure of mobile camping safaris. Walking tours, mountain climbing, cycling, quad biking, cultural visits, leisurely beach holidays, and more, can be put together in the exact combination that suits you and your needs.

We design your dream holiday for you, so that it is uniquely yours, whether you are looking for the ultimate in luxury and leisure, or for active adventure in an unspoiled wilderness.

Distinctive in their smart uniforms, they will always greet you with a smile.

More about our staff.


All of our walking and driver guides are specialists in their own way. Some specialize in ornithology, others in ecology and animal behavior, but all have an excellent general knowledge of the National Parks and the animal kingdom. Each safari is lead by a driver/guide, fluent in English and Kiswahili, with an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of animal spotting, identification, and behavior.

Our mountain guides have all climbed Kilimanjaro numerous times by the different routes, and know the mountain intimately. Professionally licensed, they are always successful in their task of getting visitors safely and happily to the summit through their guidance and care. Your guide will be present at the pre-climb briefing in Sunny Safaris’ office.


Our fleet of four wheel drive safari equipped vehicles includes Toyota Land Cruisers and Land Rover Defenders. Each safari vehicle is specially equipped with:

  • H/F radio call on board
  • car satellite tracking devices
  • guaranteed window seats

Access to the roof hatches ensures the best game viewing and photography experience. We also provide maps, flora and fauna guidebooks, and a pair of binoculars for your interest and usage.

Our fully equipped maintenance center, located in Njiro, Arusha, maintains all our vehicles to a high standard of excellence. Our maintenance team consists of head mechanics, a wheels department, and motor vehicle frame and body-lab technicians, all of whom keep each vehicle in optimal condition to ensure reliable and safe journeys.

In the unlikely event of a breakdown, we always have backup vehicles that will be deployed immediately so that there are no interruptions on your safari.
