40 Acquisition International - Global Excellence Awards 2016 Simba Safaris: Travel Fit for a King Simba Safaris have developed a selection of safaris throughout East Africa, offering an exceptional experience at unbeatable value. We profile this dynamic and exciting firm and explore the legacy of excellence it has created. stablished in 1969, Simba Safaris has operated luxury safaris for over 40 years and is one of East Africa’s most experienced luxury safari operators. Family owned and operated, the three brothers and their team of safari professionals leverage their vast experience in the industry to ensure that every guest has an exceptional experience. The firm provide luxury safaris in Tanzania, trekking services on Mt. Kilimanjaro, beach vacations on the island of Zanzibar, plus many special interest tours and outings. The company and its dedicated team have decades of experience leading travelers to Tanzania’s popular destinations in the Northern Circuit, the Southern Circuit, and the more recently opened Western Circuit. It all began when the Dharamshi Bhimani family established Simba Safaris and began leading adventurous travellers through Tanzania’s Northern Circuit. They were joined by two other tour operators, and these three pioneers opened the Northern Circuit to a broader travel market. The modern luxury safari was born in Tanzania. Those were heady days, with plenty of challenges to meet, lots of trial and error, lots of mistakes and lessons learned until the right practices were found and refined. One factor remained consistent: the conviction that strong family values translated to strong business values. Clients must be cared for in the same way that family is cared for. As such, all of Simba Safari’s staff are treated as family and work closely together to ensure a supportive atmosphere. The firm’s offices in Tanzania and Kenya are managed by safari experts who average more than ten years’ experience with Simba Safaris and have first-hand knowledge about the areas in both the countries. Safety is the firm’s priority and as such it spends considerable time and money ensuring that its equipment is safe and reliable and that their dedicated staff is the best-trained in the field. Ultimately, service excellence and a memorable experience that guests will carry with them for a lifetime remains Simba Safaris core focus as it looks towards a bright and prosperous future.
