A bit about us


Tanzania Specialists

Tanzania Specialists website is a specialist website run by parent travel company, Tribes Travel. Having planned Tanzania safari and beach holidays for 20 years, the team at Tribes decided to put all their knowledge and best advice about this great country into one very comprehensive website.  We hope you find it informative and that it gives you lots of inspiration and ideas.


Tribes Travel was founded in 1998, and is still an independent, family-run company. It is owned and run by co-founders Amanda and Guy Marks who have each worked in the travel industry for more than 30 years. They are proud to have an expert small team of consultants, writers, and even a digital wizard working with them. www.tribes.co.uk

Our Team


Tanzania specialists team includes Amanda herself, plus Tracy Edwards, Sinead Bailey and Christine MacDougall. All know Tanzania extremely well and have travelled extensively here (and continue to do so), and Chris was born and bred in the country, so you have a large pool of knowledge to pull from when talking with us. If one of us hasn’t seen the place you want to go, chances are that another in our team has been there.

Travel Consultant

The African dust is firmly planted in Chris’s heart. Born in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania she spent much of her childhood in and around Ruaha. It was pure fun. Travel and safari was part of life and through into adulthood fun and travel has never left her.
