Southern Tanzania - home of two of the great icons of wilderness remaining in Southern Tanzania – The Selous Reserve and The Ruaha National Park .
- The Selous is the largest Game Reserve in the world -about the size of Switzerland – and is a World heritage Site
- Excellent luxury camps have been established allowing the wildlife photo enthusiast access to these wonderful areas.
- Walking Safaris are popular.
- Boating adventures on the Rufiji River in Selous are an exhilarating affair not easily forgotten.
- The Ruaha National Park is the safari connoisseur’s destination of choice, a vast and unexplored tract of wilderness that maintains a reputation for prolific and rare wildlife.
Undeserved and unjust references to tsetse and impassable mud left this park overlooked for many years, but the sheer diversity of game that roams Ruaha, ensures that the park gains the attention that bolsters its reputation now.
Experienced guides are available to lead the client through this most uninhabited of parks, their knowledge and familiarity with every aspect of the park is unmatched.
Both Greater and Lesser Kudu are present in significant numbers, as well as Roan and Sable Antelope and Liechtenstein’s Hartebeest, evidence of Ruaha’s location at the convergence of Southern and Eastern mammal zones.
Wherever there are large herbivores, large carnivores are present to keep the numbers in check, and Ruaha has them in numbers. Lions, hyaena – spotted and striped – leopard and sizable populations of Wild Dog, are not unreasonable expectations on a game drive.
