Periquito Adventures & Travel believes that the trip of a lifetime should NEVER be a cookie-cutter experience!

The centerpiece of your Tanzanian dream safari begins the moment you set foot on the African soil. Our guests often say they experience a sensation of feeling connected to this land, the animals, and its people in a way that is unlike anywhere else on the planet.

Tanzania is an immersion destination… a place where your imagination blends seamlessly with reality. Images you’ve frozen in your mind from various nature magazines or movies, now play out majestically before your eyes. Vast landscapes that entice the human mind stretch on for miles, inviting you to explore every tree, river, savannah, and mountain. All of this is just awaiting your arrival in one of Africa’s most incredible destinations.

To experience a safari in Tanzania is to feel your pulse quicken to the pace of the Serengeti’s Great Migration, and to hold your breath as you watch a newborn zebra stand and take its first wobbly steps. It is a certainty that going into the wild to witness the raw, unyielding circle of life will surely awaken the adventurer that lies deep within each of us.

What Can You Expect​ from a Periquito Safari

  • End-to-End High-touch Service – Take the guesswork out of going on safari by letting us guide you through all of the pre-trip planning and preparation.  Then, we’ll stay by your side from the time you land in Tanzania until we drop you safely back at the airport for your flight home.
  • Professional Guides  You’ll be greeted by local, English-speaking, professional safari guides who are excited to show you their country.  They know how to take you into the wild, while keeping you safe. You’ll notice they also have the highest concern for the landscape and animals you’ll encounter along the way, setting our safaris apart from much of the competition.
  • Custom-designed Vehicles – You’ll enjoy safari-modified Land Cruisers during your journey. We intentionally limit each truck to a maximum of 5 guests so that everyone is ensured of a front-row view of everything that matters.
  • Luxurious Accommodations –  While certainly not the Ritz… if you think you’ll be roughing it on safari, think again!!  All of the lodges and tented camps we’re staying at have super comfortable beds, lovely linens, hot showers, and flushing toilets.
  •  Mmmmm… the FOOD!  Executive chefs will design fresh, delicious meals for you each and every day. You’ll be truly amazed at the wide variety of hot, mouthwatering food offered throughout the trip. They do a great job of satisfying every palate, and are happy to accommodate special diets or dietary restrictions, with advance notice.
  • Best Agenda / Unique Experiences –  You’ll get ample time on game drives through several national parks and conservancies, including the world-famous Serengeti, and the Unesco World Heritage site known as the Ngorongoro Crater.  Additionally, we will take you to meet the Hadzabe and Datoga tribes.  These are unique experiences that not many visitors to Tanzania get to do.  These interactions often turn out to be my guests favorite part of the entire trip, so it is not to be missed!
  • Fly OUT of the Serengeti  View the spectacular Serengeti from the air as you fly back to the town of Arusha on a bush plane at the end of the safari. A bird’s eye view of Heaven on Earth!
  • Nearly ALL INCLUSIVE  Safari price includes all in-country transportation (including the flight out of the Serengeti). It also includes all accommodations, all food, and basic tips for your guides/service teams. The only things that are not included are any options you wish to add on to your trip, plus any beverages purchased at lounges or bars, and any additional spontaneous or additional tips you may wish to give when you see how these folks go out of their way to ensure you’re comfortable and happy.
  • Optional Add-on:  Balloon Ride at Sunrise – You may wish to include a magnificent sunrise hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti as part of your grand adventure. This serene and breathtaking experience is topped off with a champagne toast and full English Breakfast in the bush upon landing. It is truly magnificent!  I’ve secured a deep discount for this experience… now available for only $375 per person!  Discounted spaces are limited… first-come, first-served!

Susie Langley

Owner / Operator
Periquito Adventures & Travel
Helping others tell amazing stories!

To understand Periquito Adventures & Travel, you first need to know the story of Susie and Morgan Langley.  Married for nearly 30 years, Susie and Morgan traveled the world together, making life-long friendships, collecting memories, and photographing some of the most scenic and magical places they could find.  Morgan was a thrill-seeker, and raced motorcycles for many years in Baja California. His racing friends called him “Periquito” (Spanish for “Parrot,” because he could talk… A LOT!).

Sadly, a tragic traffic accident took Morgan’s life in September of 2017.  In the months that followed, Susie founded Periquito Adventures in his honor, lifting up his memory as she shares their wanderlust with all who wish to experience it.

Periquito Adventures & Travel aims to deliver unique experiences you would not get with independent or large-group travel.  Susie does all the legwork for you to create a safe, organized, fun, and flexible way to see the world.  Small groups are nimble and can gain access to places and experiences that large groups cannot.  Moreover, the shared experiences realized through small-group travel promotes true and lasting friendships and are designed to expand your world and feed your soul.
