Get off the usual safari track for a whirlwind week of wildlife-viewing in the southern circuit of Tanzania. The reserves and national parks of this region are remote and much less frequented by travelers, offering exceptional exploration. Watch for its herds of elephants, towers of giraffes, and zeals of zebras on a safari experience that will feel like your group’s alone. Internal flights between parks are included to ensure you experience the most in the time available.
Arrive at any time. Arrival transfer is included.
This morning catch a flight to Ruaha National Park, Tanzania’s largest national park, which harbors an abundance of wildlife and vast, diverse landscapes. Transfer to our safari lodge and embark on a safari drive to spot local wildlife. (1B, 1L, 1D)
