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 all that Tanzania, Rwanda and Kenya have to offer, as there is so much diversity in the cultures, landscapes and wildlife of East Africa. These natural wonders include the Serengeti Plains, Ngorongoro Crater, Mount Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar and the Mountain Gorillas, just to name a few. Richard has over a quarter of a century’s experience taking visitors on safari, and has assembled his own group of professional driver guides for Safaris-R-Us, 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 The School of St Jude in 2002. Now in 2013, the school provides a free, quality education to approx 1650 students and employs over 400 Tanzanian men and women. For every guest booking of a 2 day adventure or more, Safaris-R-Us makes a donation of $50 per client to the work of St Jude's. This means you “Double the Experience” when you travel with Safaris-R-Us, knowing that you are also contributing to 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
