We are running a fully-fledged tour operation here, coordinating all Leopard Tours requirements in this region, covering the game parks of Southern Tanzania, the coastal belt, and the Islands of Mafia, Zanzibar and Pemba. When this office was opened in late 1990s, our clientele was wholly made up of Arusha Head Office sales extending into this area.
We have now built up our own clientele both internationally, and from the potentially expanding domestic market in and around Dar es Salaam. Leopard Tours Dar es Salaam is now one of the leading tour companies in eastern and southern Tanzania.
Dar es Salaam Branch Office is now located in our new office building on Pugu Road, Plot No 63 Gerezani in the city centre. The new multi storey building will house the various branch office departments, with a motor vehicle workshop and parking bay on the ground floor. In Southern Tanzania, we have a wonderful assortment of game parks, described as much more pristine by guests who happen to visit them.
The most prominent in the circuit is the Selous (55,000 sq. km), the largest game reserve in Africa. Others are Ruaha, Mikumi, Kitulo and Udzungwa National Parks, each boasting of some flora and fauna not easily found in Northern Tanzania. The newly gazetted Saadani National Park, to the north of Dar es Salaam, is already a popular destination in the southern circuit offering a unique combination of game viewing opportunities and beach holiday in one location.
The southern game parks are considered as a new frontier for development of specially exciting programs, offering small and intimate tented camps, that brings guests closer to nature while providing the comforts of a lodge or hotel in Northern Tanzania reserves. We operate our own fleet of specially designed tour vehicles, which include minibuses and 4WD vehicles for safari tours and city transfers. This makes it possible for the company to safeguard and maintain the quality and standard of ground services that we deliver throughout the country.
