Tanzania’s Southern Circuit offers a truly wild experience. The wildlife viewing starts the moment the plane touches down in Ruaha National Park, a rugged, semi-arid landscape dotted with majestic baobabs and herds of giraffes browsing the tops of acacia trees.
Next, head to Selous Game Reserve. Bigger than Switzerland, Selous Game Reserve (Nyerere National Park) is the largest protected reserve in Africa and offers unparalleled opportunities for exploration. Experience the incomparable awe of watching a mother elephant with her calf, or chase a pack of African wild dogs as they go on the hunt.
Selous Game Reserve provides wonderful opportunities for the active traveler to get a closer look at wildlife, from the thrill of rafting down the Rufigi River to the tranquility of nature walks.
