TRAVEL WITH A PURPOSE
HELP US HELP THOSE WHO HAVE NO FAMILY
Where it all began -
Whilst on Safari in Tanzania many years ago, co-founder Fiona Hall visited the Shalom Orphanage in Karatu and saw firsthand the struggles the owners and teachers faced trying to provide education and care to the many underprivileged children under their tutelage. Meeting more of the locals through this area of Karatu, Tanzania, Fiona saw the financial hardships parents face in their ability to afford to send their children to school.
Being passionate about education and firmly believing this is the best way to change financial circumstances in a Third World Country, Fiona decided immediately to begin sponsoring underprivileged children from the Karatu area. Fiona wanted to ensure she could assist each child on an ongoing basis rather than simply providing single donations.
After many sleepless night and countless hours of research, All Around Tanzania Safaris Pty Ltd was born, with the aim to sustain this goal - a safari company making a direct impact on local children's livelihood and futures.
We hope with your help (and a lot of fun along the way!) we can sponsor more children through to adulthood, to live a happy and healthy life filled with opportunities for their future.

Sustainable travel -
We support sustainable travel initiatives - from employing local people, to ensuring the game parks remain protected and pristine. We do this by supporting local schools, orphanages, businesses and practices that conserve and enable growth in the local area.
Our other co-founder Marco is local to Tanzania and a passionate and very experienced safari guide. He has been working in the industry for over 20 years and we are so lucky to have all his knowledge. Read some of our reviews to learn how much his love of Tanzania and sustainable tourism comes through to his guests!
We employ local people on all of our safaris and also in our very own campsite (The Junction). This not only allows us to get behind the scenes of Tanzania but also ensure we are contributing to the economic sustainability of the area - this is extremely important as it is part of the reason we created the business in the first place.
All Around Tanzania Safaris Pty Ltd is based in Karatu, Tanzania. Our head offices are based both here and in Melbourne, Australia.

The Junction Campsite -
'The Junction' Campsite is located in Nija Panda, Karatu which in Swahili means, the junction. It is the gateway to Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Lake Manyara National Park, Tarangire National Park and Lake Eyasi. Making it the perfect place to base yourself for a safari!
'The Junction' offers just over 2 acres of lush green grass and gardens for you to set up your tent and is fully fenced to provide our guests with 24/7 security.
You can venture out each day and return to our site with minimal travelling time. One of the most popular ways to see Tanzania is by experiencing its natural beauty under canvas - but stay tuned because tented lodges at our very own campsite is our next project!
