Thomson Safaris is a unique organization working to protect wildlife, conserve natural ecosystems, and empower local communities in northern Tanzania.
Thomson Safaris serves as a model for community conservation initiatives, fostering a symbiotic relationship made possible by eco-tourism; tourists gain a unique and intimate connection with native Tanzanians, while local communities gain educational opportunities.
Since 2006 when Thomson Safaris established the TCL Nature Refuge, wildlife populations in the refuge have doubled, rare native tree species have been thrived, and East African communities have benefited through education, women’s entrepreneurship, and sustainable technology programs.
Thomson Safaris has been taking families to Tanzania for 30 years. Thomson's family safaris are designed with kid-friendly activities including pen-pals with Tanzanian students, trip mentors and special teen-only departures. thomsonsafaris.com
