Do I bring a present from Tanzania or not?

It is not always easy to bring something for those back home or for yourself as a gift or souvenir. So let us lend a hand and already prepare you a bit of what it could possibly become when you return from vacation from Tanzania.

We are going to share some great Tanzanian gifts that you can buy for family and friends back home.



Save money and get authentic souvenirs by buying directly from the source. We will take you there (en route to your safari), while you can haggle up to 50% of the requested price. Discover an array of fascinating carvings, including masks, jewelry, figurines and more, during your trip to Tanzania.



Get authentic African art directly to your home by buying paintings on their origins. Each piece adds a unique decorative element to your space, whether at home, in the office or elsewhere.

Made of high-quality muslin canvas, these paintings are beautiful expressions of African wildlife, flora and cultural richness. With playful artistic renderings of animals, people and landscapes, they are a true enhancement to any environment.

Each painting tells a story, reflects rich African cultures and folklore, and is characterized by bold shapes, intriguing patterns and vibrant colors. Discover these unique works of art and bring a piece of African soul into your living space.



Let us guide you to the best places to buy beautiful jewelry. We refer you to reputable dealers offering authentic gemstones, including diamonds, rubies, emeralds, garnets, tourmalines and sapphires. Tanzania is known as the only global source of tanzanite, a gemstone that is a thousand times rarer than diamonds and which experts predict will be depleted within 10 years, only increasing its value.

In addition to exploring these gems, we can also take you to a small museum to learn more about Tanzania’s rich gem history.



Discover the unique flavors of Tanzanian coffee, with the northern region offering sweet notes and the south having higher acidity and a floral or fruity profile, thanks to the volcanic soil and variable altitudes of the coffee plantations. Experience this for yourself during

An African safari is always an adventure. But to embark on your adventure means that even during the planning phase, you need to get in touch with someone who provides independent and honest advice.

It is rare for someone to return home disappointed about their safari, but they may not be aware of what they did not see and how much better it could have been.

Katja wants to make sure her clients are aware of all options for their African adventure … regardless of how they define that adventure. JADORE SAFARIS clients become her good friends, many of whom return to Tanzania or Kenya to travel with us again.

In addition to the personal welcome, it is also Katja who, behind the scenes as financial director, ensures that everything once you are here can also run smoothly.
