Safaris-R-Us is a registered tour company 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.
