South Tanzania Safari in Selous, Udzungwa, Mikumi and Ruaha
[ACTS2]: Tanzania Exposed! - Southern Safari (11 Days)
Tanzania's southern parks are more coveted by safari aficionados. If you want a real bush experience without the tourist masses, then you should consider this itinerary. Most accommodations are at the high-end of the price range because they are intimate and cater to small groups. The southern national parks offer a truly wild experience. If you're flying into Dar es Salaam, Mikumi National Park is easily accessible by road. But on this safari, you'll catch a flight on a small aircraft to reach these parks and reserves.

Selous Game Reserve is the largest game reserve in Africa . To put it in perspective, the Selous is larger than Switzerland and measuring about 54.600 Sq. Km. and almost four times the size of the Serengeti National Park. This Safari for the adventurous traveler covers all National Parks of the South of Tanzania, Selous, Udzungwa, Mikumi and including the remote Ruaha National Park. Accommodations in Selous and surrounding areas are somewhat limited but all offer a very intimate and unique safari experience. Learn More >
