The Safari Cruisers have been customized for comfort and optimized game viewing and are fitted with bush-lunch awnings, 240v power supply to recharge your cameras and batteries, a cool box and drinks refrigerator, binoculars and reference books on flora and fauna. No picnic boxes on the safari! Each vehicle is equipped with tables and chairs and a complete picnic hamper set up.
The Executive Cessna 208 is the very first of its kind on Tanzania’s safari circuit. The 208B is the ideal safari aircraft, and now even more so with the new Executive Oasis interior by YingLing Aviation. Only 9 club-class seats including a coffee station and bar instead of the typical 13 commuter seats.
The Guiding Team each have between 5 and 15 years experience across East and Southern Africa, all boasting both domestic and international qualifications including FGSA Level 3 and internationally recognized Wildlife and Conservation Management Diplomas. Elewana is particularily proud to have a strong contingent of Tanzanian guides, some of whom have previously worked within the Tanzania National Parks Authority and The Tanzania Wildlife Department as Head Rangers and Senior Wardens.
