The National Parks of southern
Tanzania have gradually earned a reputation amongst
connoisseurs as the best-kept secret on the African
safari circuit, offering remote, untouched swathes of
game-filled wilderness with an exclusivity borne of
Remote location, limited bedspace and
boundless bush will ensure that even as awareness grows
of the bounteous wildlife roaming these lands, the safari
experience of Tanzania's southern safarilands will remain
of the true and unadulterated variety.
|Selous Game Reserve
The largest in Africa, Selous Game Reserve represents
the African wilderness at its most untouched. Navigating
the network of lakes and rivers in a boat offer
a hippo's-eye view of the big game safarilands,
whilst the privileged perspective afforded from
encountering the wildlife on foot relives the experiences
of the explorers, settlers and big game hunters
of safari's golden age.
|Ruaha National Park
Tanzania's second largest National Park is still
relatively unknown, making it ideal for those seeking
the trails less-travelled and the wildlife less-visited.
The miombo woodland and characteristic sand rivers
of Ruaha supports a unique range of wildlife, borne
of the Park's location at the cusp of the eastern
and southern species.
|Mikumi National Park
Mikumi is the link in the ecological chain that
stretches between the Selous to the south and the
Eastern Arc hills to the north. Convenient access
to Dar es Salaam, with legions of game amidst the
flood plains and deciduous forest that make up much
of the habitat, make this Park more seductive than
the visitor numbers suggest.
