About Us

Baobab Reisen GmbH is a Swiss Company formed in 2019 offering Tanzanian Safaris, Beach & Dive holidays & an official member of The Swiss Travel Association.

Why Baobab Travel?

For Its founder Jason Savidge, it is a lifelong dream to be able to bring guests to the country he grew up in.


The Baobab is known as The Tree of Life, providing a life-giving canopy in the wilds of Africa (& Australia). The huge trees define the landscape in Ruaha and on Mafia & Chole Islands. So much so, that from all our partner Lodges you can see the mighty trees and on Chole Mjini the Treehouses are built amongst the Baobabs.


Having owned and managed the Company Snowmotions GmbH specialising in Swiss Ski & Snowboard Holidays for the past twenty years it seems like an unusual new project to offer holidays in Tanzania. But he sees it as a logical progression, offering the same high standards of guest satisfaction and enjoyment in an amazing natural setting.


His father was the first Park Warden of Ruaha National Park, responsible for opening the park up to tourism and laying the initial infrastructure of roads, airstrips & river crossings as well as establishing the first anti-poaching patrols. Through their family connections the Savidges have over fifty years of East African knowledge and although Baobab Reisen is a relatively new company, the roots run deep.
