Southern Tanzania – welcome to YOUR safari advenutre
Incredible game viewing plus a wide variety of safari activities outside the vehicle, make Southern Tanzania an ideal destination for adventurous travelers and explorers! Whether it is a boat safari, a walking safari or a fly camping experience under the stars of Africa, the possibilities are endless.
Outstanding and well-known are Ruaha National Park with its large elephant and lion population as well as the Selous Game Reserve – Africa’s largest protected area, which has just recently been renamed as Nyerere National Park. But there is more: Mikumi and Udzungwa Mountains are also worth a visit! Mikumi with its open savannah plains is often referred to as “Little Serengeti”, while the Udzungwa Mountains can only be explored on foot with chances to spot some primates like the endemic Udzungwa red colobus!
Many operators only offer the South by plane between Ruaha and Nyerere, however, this makes your safari unnecessary expensive. If you don’t mind spending time in the vehicle and exploring the country side, then the most economical safari option is by road with your 4×4 private vehicle and professional driver/guide.
