LEOPARD TOURS WELCOMES YOU TO TANZANIA
The founding of Leopard Tours in 1985 was an inspiration from the sheer wealth of natural attractions that make Tanzania one of the most enchanting safari destinations in Africa. It is a destination of natural wonders and understated beauty. With more than 25% of its area of 945,087 square kilometres set aside for game parks and reserves, Tanzania is considered the ultimate destination for nature observation and recreation.
In a ceremony held in Arusha, Tanzania, on 11th February 2013, to honour the winners of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa, Tanzania was recognized as the leading nature destination in Africa. Out of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa, three of the World Heritage Sites of Tanzania were among the winners in the celebrated list, namely: Kilimanjaro National Park (Mount Kilimanjaro), the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (Ngorongoro Crater) and Serengeti National Park. The winners were announced by the President and Founder of Seven Natural Wonders, Dr Phillip Imler, with Serengeti National Park emerging as the best of them all.
Leopard Tours is constantly investing in product development, focused on using the preferred assortment of safari vehicles and operations team needed to provide the best conditions for visitors to share with us the natural wonders of Tanzania.
Leopard Tours is proudly organizing visits to these wonderful places, including the idyllic islands of Zanzibar and Mafia, keeping in mind the arrangements and guest experiences are as rewarding as possible in recognition of the special value that visitors attach to these tours. Part of the tour fees that our guests pay go directly to the conservation and management of these nature reserves and cultural heritage sites.
The Tanzania Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism vision statement is “Sustainable conservation of natural and cultural resources and development of responsible tourism”.
Tanzania is committed to low impact, sustainable tourism. Before starting their safari tour and holiday in Tanzania, visitors traveling with Leopard Tours are briefed about the fragility of the ecosystems and the need to tread lightly. Among other pre-safari notes, the guest’s welcome information kit includes National Park regulations, as we believe the protection of our natural world and cultural heritage is the responsibility of every one of us.
We believe in two simple values: attentiveness and knowledge. We need them in the bush, in cities, everywhere, whenever we are with guests.
We know they want to learn, to enjoy and to enjoy the short time they have in our country fully. The volume of visitors we guide is quite big, but think of the fun and the lasting friendship that more often than not is gained in the course of our duty.
