About us

TRANSLEN INVESTMENT TOURS AND SAFARIS is more than a safari company. We are more than a tour operator or trekking guide service. We’re craftspeople. Our staff is a tightly woven team dedicated to welcoming every client into Tanzania and crafting the most life-changing experiences possible.
Since 2010, Translen has been Tanzania’s good tour operator. With every client we start with a question: what are your needs, your goals, your dreams? We ask this because every client approaches Africa with individual pursuits, and Translen excels at tailoring experiences to meet their specific needs.

We plan and develope our safari product the smart way 🙂

We are experts in the field of creating the perfect packages for Tanzania safaris. We focus on product quality and assurance, giving competitive pricing without compromising on service. The Translen team plans safari itineraries to minimize travel time between parks, ensuring guests see as many animals and beautiful places as possible. We know the geography of Tanzania destinations well, and we guarantee that the logistics of your tour will be the best.

Leonard Mmari the founder and CEO of Translen investment, is the most reliable, creative and experinced tour operator for over 10 years.

Leonard with Translen Investment  will turn your dreams into experiences, and your experiences into memories.

Our safari guides are well-versed in Tanzania’s destinations and wildlife

Our Safari Guides have a minimum of 10 years of experience and highly knowledgeable in the fauna and flora of Tanzania and have great driving skills too. Some of them are multi lingual with European. Translen guides will go the extra mile to ensure you have a great experience on safari and to make our clients’ dream a reality, but at the same time more memorable and exciting. Every year are trained and have to go through a course of knowledge, vehicle handling, hospitality manner, and first aid & Covid 19 precaution.

We owns more than 20 well maintained Safari Vehicles.

They have everything needed for a great safari – comfortable seats, free WiFi, mobile phone chargers, a refrigerator with cool drinks and a retractable roof. After every Safari, vehicles go through a full inspection and maintenance. Our in-house Mechanics will liaise with our Safari Guides and fix any issues found or noticed immediately, prior the next Safari. A final check is done 24 hours prior a Safari, this is attended by The Safari Guide, The Manager and The Mechanic in charge, safety and quality is never compromised with us.

COMMITTED
For over three decades, Translen has taken responsibility for the impact tourism has on Tanzania’s wildlife, mountains, beaches, and communities. From staff cleanup days, partnering with KPAP (Kilimanjaro Porter Assistance Project), and we are committed to progress and sustainability, going beyond what’s expected of us.

DEDICATED
Quality service found nowhere else in the industry. Our vehicles, gear, and infrastructure are all maintained in-house, while every guide, driver, and porter is thoroughly reviewed for experience and local expertise.
We know. Planning a trip to Tanzania is a huge decision. The country overflows with world-class activities. In just two weeks you could summit the tallest mountain in Africa (Mt. Kilimanjaro), complete the most famous safari circuit on the planet (Lake Manyara – Tarangire – Serengeti – Ngorongoro) and finish with a few days of relaxation in paradise (Zanzibar). From mountain to Savannah to white-sand beaches, there are a thousand ways to build your own personal Tanzanian adventure. And this is where Translen comes in, to make your preparations, well, cheap.

First time in Tanzania. We are very satisfied with our trip that we booked with Translen. We had good conversation through mail before we arrived and all questions were answered good and quick. Our driver and guide Isak made us feel very good and he was really nice and helpful. We saw a lot of animals of course. A lot of lions, both mail, female and cubs. We saw feeding lions, a hunting lioness and even a mating couple. We were even lucky enough to see a leopard cub and a serval. The first night in serengeti luxuary camp was excellent. Very nice staff and place and we felt very good there. They also had very good food and there was no problem at all getting vegetarian dishes. All in all we are very happy and satisfied with our trip and we can recommend Translen to everyone thinking about a trip like this. //Fredrik and Lindha

タンザニアのバードウオッチングとサファリ 昨年の12月に続き、二度目のタンザニアでした。ベテランガイドの方のおかげでたくさんの鳥や動物を見せてもらい、とても楽しい時間を過ごせました。今回は雨季なので雨が降ると予想していましたが、今年は雨が少なく乾燥した土地が広がっていました。次回は緑の草原が広がっている時期に行けたらと思います。

We saw many animals thanks to our guides We saw many animals thanks to our guide, houston and the only surprises we had were all good ones! Our agent, was very quick to answer our demand and some adaptations. In the company offices, we have had a briefing the day before beginning the safari to make sure to clarify whatever was needed, as well as a debriefing the last day of the safari to make sure that the safari had met our expectations
