Safaris-R-Us is a registered tour company (#1040) founded by Richard and Gemma Sisia in order to achieve two dreams. First, they want to showcase to the world all that Tanzania, Rwanda and Kenya have to offer, since there is so much diversity in the cultures, landscapes and wildlife of East Africa. East Africa boasts natural wonders such as the Serengeti Plains, Ngorongoro Crater, Zanzibar, Mount Kilimanjaro and the Mountain Gorillas, just to name a few. Richard has over a quarter of a century’s experience in taking visitors on safari and has assembled a group of professional driver guides, each with a minimum of 15 years experience.
Second, they want to continue supporting the people of Tanzania through education. Richard and Gemma, his Australian born wife, founded The School of St Jude in 2002. Now in 2014, the school gives a free, quality education to approx 1800 students as well as employment to over 450 Tanzanian men and women. For every guest booking, Safaris-R-Us makes a donation of US$50 per client (for 2-day and above trips) to the work of St Jude's. This means you “Double your Experience” when you travel with Safaris-R-Us, knowing that you are also contributing to the free, quality education of Tanzanian children and the future of Africa. You can even Visit St Jude's if you wish!

"The overall experience was amazing! We were fortunate to visit a parish in the slums in Nairobi, and it was a fabulous experience. Having the opportunity to compare St Jude’s and the success that it has had, to the school in Nairobi. It was like having three holidays in one,... Read more
