The wild south of Tanzania

When we think of Tanzania, most of us think of the Ngorongoro Crater or the famous Serengeti in the north of the country. But Tanzania has much more to offer, far off the beaten tourist track. Two spectacular national parks await you in the south of the country, where you can experience untouched and natural Africa. There is only one road in Nyerere National Park, everything else is in its original state, so that off-road driving is an everyday occurrence here - a true safari adventure. Here you will experience one of the most authentic safari experiences in Tanzania and the great thing is that you only have to share it with a few other people. Then end your round trip in a relaxed atmosphere and fly back to Tanzania's south coast and spend a few unforgettable days of rest and relaxation on the Indian Ocean.

Day 2

From Dar es Salaam to Nyerere National Park

After a hearty breakfast, you will be collected from your accommodation and driven back to the airport, from where you will fly by small plane to Nyerere National Park, also known as the Selous Game Reserve. During your flight, you will already get a first impression of this breathtaking landscape of southern Tanzania. You fly over endless stretches of uninhabited land and, with a bit of luck, you may spot a few herds of elephant or buffalo from the air as you land.
A driver will be waiting for you at the airstrip to take you your accommodation for the next three nights. The camp is in a fantastic location directly on the banks of a lake fed by the Rufiji River, so camp visitors such as hippos and elephants are not uncommon. After you have settled into your tent, get ready for your first game drive through the national park.

Day 3 - 4

Safari in Nyerere National Park

The next two days are spent exploring the spectacular landscape and wildlife of Nyerere National Park in the morning and evening. The wildlife is varied and in addition to regular sightings of giraffes, elephants and lions, the very rare African wild dog is also at home here in the south of the country. You can experience the untouched nature here not only on classic game drives, but you also have the opportunity to go on boat or foot safaris. Decide for yourself which activities you would like to undertake each day and organize your day according to your wishes.

Day 5 - 7

Ruaha National Park

After a final breakfast in a picturesque setting, you will be driven to the airstrip and fly on to Ruaha National Park. Here you will spend three nights at a luxurious camp in a prime location to experience the extraordinary extent of the wildlife found here up close. The park boasts very varied vegetation, ranging from scrubland and savannah to dense miombo woodland. The different habitats ensure a particularly diverse animal world, so that with a bit of luck you can observe numerous antelope species as well as lions, leopards and cheetahs alongside large herds of elephants and buffalo.
