Untamed adventure in Southern Tanzania

Raw, remote and unrivalled for adventure

If you're seeking the best place for an African safari in its purest form, a safari in southern Tanzania is for you.

Tanzania is known as one of Africa's premier safari destinations, offering famous experiences such as the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater, not to mention the glittering jewel in the safari crown - the Great Migration. 

Yes, those are memorable safari experiences to have, but they aren't the only experiences to have. 

If you've traversed the popular northern circuit, or if you're seeking a more uncharted experience, then you're in the right place.

Few things come close to the experience of a truly remote safari, where nature in its rawest form takes centre stage devoid of the distraction other vehicles and tourists bring. This is what you can expect in the parks of Southern Tanzania. 

Ruaha National Park and Nyerere National Park offer exclusivity (you'll feel like you're the only visitors around for miles) and exceptional wildlife viewing (with sightings you don't need to share with other vehicles) - all while staying in top-notch camps.  

Bring your friends and family for an epic group safari - perfect for celebrating special occasions or as a special occasion in itself. With just a quick hop from Southern Tanzania, it's easy to combine your Tanzania safari with Zanzibar island bliss.
