Eshkesh Safari Ltd is a Tanzanian privately owned safari company specializing in big game hunting safaris.
Our headquarters are situated in Arusha, Tanzania.
Tanzania has three classes of hunting licenses. A hunter must choose a ten-day, sixteen-day, or twenty-one-day license, and a larger variety of species are available on the longer licenses. For example, a hunter may hunt up to two buffalo and a variety of plains game on a ten-day license, but must buy a sixteen-day license to hunt crocodiles and waterbuck and a twenty-one-day license to hunt elephant, sable, roan, lion, leopard, oryx, greater kudu, and eland. In addition to the license fee, trophy fees are charged for each species taken, as well as other government fees, which can add significantly to the safari cost.
We have 8 fully furnished tents with 24 hour hot running showers, two dinning messes and one modern kitchen which caters a wide variety of international cuisine.
Camp is staffed with highly trained Drivers, Skinners, Trackers, Gun bearers, Cooks, Mess waiters, Tent Attendants and Security Guards.
Our camps are solar powered with one standby generator available 24 hours with 240volts outlets in tents for charging batteries, cell phones etc.
The Tanzanian hunting season is from 1st July through 31st December.
The rainy monsoon season is April/May, while the short rains usually fall between November and December.
Masailand can be very cold at night, especially during June, July and August.
Eshkesh Safari Ltd has the exclusive right to the finest game concession in Northern Tanzania: Masailand (Masai East Open Area). The area is easily reached from Arusha City in about 25 minutes by light aircraft, and about 2 and a half hours drive via the almost all weather road to Engasumet of Simanjiro District and Kibaya of Kiteto District.
