The hidden treasures of nature in Southern Tanzania

January and February & July to October 2021

11 days / 10 nights – from £ 6,390 per person

Tailor made safari

Immerse yourself in southern Tanzania and discover extraordinary reserves, exceptional in their conservation, landscapes, wildlife, and especially their very limited number of visitors. Experience a safari close to how the first Europeans who arrived in this region discovered it.

Some notable aspects of this safari are to:

– live in immersion in preserved eco-systems and rarely visited reserves with the freedom of an open 4×4 vehicle driven by an English-speaking specialised driver-guide and boat excursions on the beautiful rivers of Selous Game Reserve

– discover the major reserves of the south of the country and enjoy an experience of immersion far from traditional tourism

– maximise the time in stunning landscapes and with the animals when conditions are optimal for their observation and photography, and do not waste time in lengthy road transfers

– enjoy your accommodation in small yet comfortable camps located in heart of the reserves

– appreciate the possibility of adapting this itinerary to your wishes and ideal travel dates

An outstanding safari to discover Tanzania very close to nature!
