A Tent With A View

"I've known David, Masa and Tara for many, many years and have watched them build up their properties and tours slowly, professionally and sustainably over the last three decades. Having now been to Tanzania several times I'm always extremely impressed that the quality keeps on getting better and better and better every time I go back.

The quality of the camps and lodges, coupled their knowledge and genuine passion for the wildlife and people of Tanzania, make them one of the leading wildlife safari businesses in Tanzania".


Mark Wright, The Adventure Connection  




Based in Dar Es Salaam, A Tent With A View (ATWAV) covers the Selous, Saadani, Lake Victoria, the Serengeti (with sites at the Mara River, Kusini and at the Grumeti River) & Zanzibar Island.

Innovation & Integrity

Using their own camps, lodges and hotels, ATWAV can operate complete tours and arrange all ground-handling for groups or tailor-mades.


Started 1995

It was all started by David Guthrie in Saadani NP. He then opened a second camp in the Selous; followed by The Zanzibari - a boutique hotel on Zanzibar Island. ATWAV now operates across Tanzania - in the Lake Victoria region, Serengeti, Selous and Saadani. See The Bush Rover Suite for information on Serengeti migration safaris.

The natural world

David’s passion for wildlife led him to Tanzania in 1990 and he has been there ever since. He is well known for ground-breaking work on elephant conservation, anti-poaching as well as various health initiatives to benefit local communities such as ‘Doctors on Safari’ and more..



David, Tara & Masa

David Guthrie, a Brit, and Masoud “Masa” Kilanga, a Tanzanian, are at the very heart of the operation. David’s innovative ideas are put into practice by Masa’s amazing engineering skill. David’s wife Tara runs the marketing and office backup from the UK.
