Southern Tanzania


Southern Tanzania brings you to more remote areas, which are almost untouched and unexplored. We can offer packages starting from Zanzibar or Arusha to Nyerere National Park, Ruaha National Park, or Udzungwa Mountains National Park.

Southern Tanzania might be less well-known, but the Southern safari circuit is getting increasingly popular. The Southern Tanzania safari circuit is worth considering for customers who have visited Tanzania before.

Nyerere National Park

Nyerere National Park  at 45,000 square kilometers, Nyerere National Park is the largest protected area in Africa and three times the size of Serengeti National Park. It is estimated that the reserve is home to 70,000 elephants, 100,000 wildebeest, 120,000 buffalo and 40,000 hippos. Hunting is permitted in the reserve and thus the area visited by photographic safaris is quite small, despite the reserve’s large area. There are only a handful of small tented camps and approximately 1% of Tanzania’s visitors include the Nyerere as part of their safari itinerary. Ajubatus Safaris includes Nyerere as a fly-in, fly-out package to one of the park camps. Walking and boat safaris are permitted in Nyerere National Park.


Ruaha National Park is famous for its spectacular, untouched scenery and the Great Ruaha River. Unlike parks in northern Tanzania, Ruaha receives few visitors and thus is one of the few wildlife sanctuaries in which animals are viewed in their natural state. The park is 13,000 square kilometers and has one of the largest elephant populations in Tanzania, as well as many hippopotami and large crocodiles. Topi Adventures includes Ruaha National Park as a fly-in, fly-out package to one of the park camps.


Gazetted in 1992, Udzungwa is home to several endangered emdemics including three primates, two bird, and numerous plant and invertebrate species. Udzungwa is seldom-visited and offers many opportunities for hiking. Udzungwa is part of the Eastern Arc Mountain Range, one of the world’s 20 top biodiversity hotspots. The mountain range is sometimes referred to as the ‘Galapagos of Africa’ due to its large number of endemic species.
