Company overview

Not many safari companies in Tanzania have a history as old as Tanzania itself. Ours does.
The Fortes group started in 1962 as a small, family-run enterprise. We started off with a garage and very quickly moved into organizing safaris for international tourists. The great location of Mwanza, especially its proximity to the most famous of African Parks, Serengeti, quickly made Fortes a well-known brand in the safari-tours sector.
We have recently been listed as one of the Top 100 mid-sized companies in all of Tanzania, 2013.
Currently, two generations of Fortes run the day-to-day safari business.

Fortes Safaris offers a range of packages all of which are personally tailored to suit the tastes of our international clientele.
Mwanza, based on the shores of Lake Victoria is the second largest and one of the fastest growing cities in Tanzania. It’s geographical location makes us the perfect gateway to the Serengeti National Park.
The consistently pleasant climate and numerous Natural attractions, have certainly contributed to the success story of Fortes Africa over the past forty years.
Our large fleet of custom built luxury safari vehicles, tour guides/drivers and friendly support and operational staff will certainly ensure a satisfactory and lasting good impression with our clients.

  • Safari packages in all the National Parks in Tanzania.
