SOUTHERN TANZANIA SAFARI & BEACH HOLIDAY

Southern Tanzania is still relatively unknown on the 'safari circuit' yet offers some of the very best safari country & some of the very best game viewing experiences in Africa. The Selous Reserve and Ruaha National Park are large and quite wild, great if you don't want to see too many other safari vehicles. Remote, private, photogenic & game rich areas. In true modern-day safari tradition you will finish with a few days on the beach, unspoilt Tanzanian-style. Ras Kutani is a beach lodge some 40km south of Dar es Salaam, bordering a fresh water lagoon, adjacent to a coastal forest and a pristine beach.

Ruaha National Park is one of the largest parks in Africa, with an area of 20,000 square kilometres, but is still relatively unknown, with an astonishing variety of both plant and animal life - the diversity of wildlife is staggering.

TRAVEL TIPS FOR TANZANIA

LET US GUIDE YOU...

The southern part of Tanzania is more 'wild & woolly' than the classic northern circuit, but it is still a great option. Typically, it is quieter than the more popular north, so you will see less lodges, less vehicles, less fences, less people - basically less evidence of human encroachment all round. However, the wildlife and safari experience is still a really good one.

It is also very easy to add on any of the magical islands off the coast of Tanzania, such as Zanzibar, Pemba or Mafia - all great beach extensions. So if you want to follow a path less travelled, then this one could be for you.
