Once a month (except in April) we organise a southern circuit Tanzanian safari through the not so well-known and rarely visited by tourists National parks in the south and east of Tanzania.

This special Safari always starts after a north Tanzanian Special Offer Safari, so you have the opportunity to visit in three weeks a total of 9 Tanzanian National Parks, with all their unique characteristics (landscape, flora and fauna)

The southern Tanzania safari special is always carried out in small groups of 2 up to 7 people and with a proper safari vehicle as these areas are often remote.

On the way you have two sleeping options with the Simple Safari variant in simple accommodation (guest houses, tents, government bandas) or Lodge Safari which uses better accommodation (lodges, tented camps).

The safari takes in the Udzungwa Mountain National Park, the Ruaha National Park, Mikumi National Park and Selous Game Reserve. The journeys between the parks in the south and east of Tanzania are much longer than on the northern Tanzania safaris, where the parks are only a short distance from each other.

You will be accompanied by a well-trained English-speaking safari guide / driver and an experienced safari cook during the tour. This safari is really a highlight among Tanzania Safaris, for you will see isolated areas and breath-taking landscapes and you will visit very untouristic areas

Following this tour we can help you organize your relaxation in Zanzibar or the magical southern town of Kilwa Masoko.

On the Simple Safari you will be accompanied by a well-trained, experienced and English speaking driver Tanzanian guide and an experienced safari cook on the tour.
The Camping Equipment on the Simple Safari is more basic than on the camping safaris in the north of Tanzania, as there is more equipment space is limited. So you sleep, for example, only in normal igloo tents on thinner mattress and not in man-sized tents with thick mattresses, like on the tours in the north.

You should help out a bit on the tour, such as setting up and dismantling the tents (only with Simple Safari). On this tour, sometimes you need something to be improvised, because this remote area of Tanzania is not as well setup for tourists, as the north of the country and plans sometimes have to change. However you will be rewarded with an amazing safari and a unique tour off the beaten track and away from the crowds!
