The Story of Ombeni African Safaris

Ombeni African Safaris was founded 12 years ago to a serve dream. When 19-year old Ombeni Pallangyo graduated from Nairobi Institute with a conservation, tourism and hotel management degree, he had a plan. Ombeni wanted to share his love for Africa with his American friends while gathering funds to help his home village at the foot of Mount Meru. By now, everyone who has taken a safari with Ombeni African Safaris has fallen in love with Africa. Ombeni’s touch is magical: he makes every safari feel an authentic, life-changing experience. Through the years, Ombeni Foundation has provided fresh drinking water, food, school supplies, shoes, and medical support to thousands of villagers. Currently, Ombeni is building a health center and continues to support Sorongoro Primary School, where his own story began on bare feet, running seven miles to school every day. We will make a difference in your life and the lives of African people.

The Soul Of Tanzania

"There’s a rhythm to Africa that pulses through the veins of every man, woman, and beast born there, forever bonding them as one. Ombeni Pallangyo—Ben Emanuel, as he’s known in America—has a hard time putting this primal harmony into words, but he swears he can hear his home continent’s drumbeat the instant the wheels touch down at Kilimanjaro airport. And everyone he’s ever brought with him on official Ombeni African Safari tours now hears and feels it, too." Maggie Ginsberg Madison Magazine

Happy Safari Guests

Our safari to Tanzania under the auspices of Ombeni African Safaris was one of the most memorable vacations we ever had. The guides we had were professional, knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and personable. We were more than satisfied with the services they provided. We were amazed at what we saw while on safari. We visited five national parks, and the wildlife viewing was beyond our wildest imagination. We saw vast varieties of wildlife up close and personal. The accommodations at the lodges we stayed at were very good, and we enjoyed the food. We are extremely satisfied with our experience.
