About Tanzania Specialist
Tanzania Specialist was founded by Dutch entrepreneur Robbin Meuluemans in 2015. Offering specialised Tanzania private tours, our English-speaking expert safari and travel guides provide unique travel experiences for memories that last a lifetime.
Our mission has been the same from day one: to provide travellers with the best experience of Tanzania possible. This extends to every aspect of the Tanzania travel experience. From bespoke Tanzania travel itineraries that tick all the boxes, to the five-star lodges and safari accommodation options included on Tanzania Specialist trips. In fact, we partner with over 100 hotels and lodges across Tanzania, all personally assessed by our on-site team of professionals.
Born from a passion for immersive, safe travel in Tanzania, it took just one unforgettable tour of Tanzania for Robbin and his wife to fall in love with the magic of Tanzania. Identifying a huge gap in the market for high-quality, private tour operations in the country, Robbin teamed up with one of Tanzania’s best safari and luxury travel guides in the country: Epimark Bernard. The next few years saw Tanzania Specialist attract thousands of clients around the world to Tanzania’s lush lands. The company now boasts a full-time staff of 30 in Arusha and the Netherlands. Today the Meulemans split their time between Tanzania in the Netherlands.
Tanzania Specialist has two offices located in Europe and Tanzania. Our European headquarters are located in the Netherlands, with our Tanzania headquarters are located in Arusha. Running a professional local operation while having our headquarters in Europe offers our clients absolute peace of mind when it comes to booking your dream Tanzania adventure.
