Paradise & Wilderness

abous us

Paradise & Wilderness is an expert in safaris in Tanzania and a specialist in holidays in Zanzibar, owned by the Dutchman Bert Schoonvelde.
Years ago, he came to Zanzibar for a holiday and fell in love with this magnificent place.

“Now, I am lucky enough to have three Beach Resorts and a Boutique Hotel on Zanzibar, a Safari Lodge in the Selous GR (Nyerere National Park) and several more Safari Lodges located near or in world’s most famous national parks: Serengeti Ikoma, Serengeti Bolongonja, Lake Natron, Lake Manyara and Arusha.”

This combination of culture, incredible white sand beaches and the largest wildlife sanctuaries in Africa makes Tanzania unique.

“My holidays in Tanzania were too short to get to know this magical country, so I stayed here and made my dream my job!”

Bert Schoonvelde
