This is a perfect safari combination to explore three of the southern national parks in Tanzania.

Mikumi national park has a great variety of animals like the ‘Big Five’ and the chance that you will encounter lions climbing up trees is greater here than in other parks! Ruaha national park is not only the second largest park but is probably home to more elephants than any other national park in East Africa. And Selous Game Reserve (Nyerere National Park) is Tanzania’s largest park. Due to its wildlife diversity and undisturbed nature even a UNESCO World Heritage Site!

This private safari offers you the flexibility to travel at your own pace, exactly the way you like it. You will have a private safari vehicle and guide.

Day 1 - 2: Mikumi National Park
Day 1 - 2: Mikumi National Park

Our driver guide will meet you at your hotel in Dar Es Salaam, he will start with a short brief regarding your safari, and then you will leave for Mikumi National Park which lies at a six-hour drive from Dar Es Salaam, and it is Tanzania's fourth largest national park. The open horizons and abundant wildlife draw frequent comparisons to the more famous Serengeti plains, but its location close to Tanzania's largest city makes Mikumi easier accessible. The park has a great variety of animals: elephants, buffalos, zebras and giraffes are relatively easy to spot, as well as lions mating and many hippos in the resident hippo pool!

Day 3 - 4: Ruaha National Park

Ruaha National Park is the third largest national park in Tanzania. It lies along the Great Ruaha River, is known for its large elephant population, and is a true paradise for birdwatchers with over 570 species. Besides, you might catch a glimpse of lions, leopards, giraffes, zebras, crocodiles, elands, sable antelopes, jackals, or the rare African wild dog. Game drives are special, as you drive through an untouched ecosystem in this relatively quiet but stunning park!

A boat safari on the Rufiji River in Nyerere National Park is both relaxing and adventurous!
