Cheesemans’ Ecology Safaris / Founding Member

We have led over 70 safaris to the Serengeti Plains of Tanzania and Kenya! We believe an extraordinary safari is more than renowned destinations and remarkable wildlife.  Unforgettable safaris are made possible through inspired conception, organization, and leadership. Our itineraries are unique, our preparation is thorough, but most importantly, our safari leadership is exceptional. Our guides have broad backgrounds and extensive experience and are motivated by a desire to share wildlife, nature, birding, and photography with you. First-class resident guides are critical to making a great safari. More than three decades of experience has enabled us to share the finest that Africa has to offer.

Dorobo Tours & Safaris


The “twang” of a Hadza bowstring in the evening light, elephants like ghost trains under a full moon, the tense silence caused by the guttural growls of a lioness protecting her cubs –these are the kinds of experiences that Dorobo has shared with visitors to Tanzania since the 1980’s. Then, as now, Dorobo has focused on developing unique and personal experiences ‘off the beaten track’ involving and benefiting local cultures, ecosystems, and wilderness areas through ecotourism safaris.
