Off The Beaten Track in Tanzania

Southern Tanzania offers an exhilarating safari circuit. Unlike most of East Africa, Ruaha National Park and the Selous Game Reserve are very much ‘off the beaten track.’ The name of the game is authenticity and the focus of your safari will be to connect with the history and culture of the region rather as well as seeing the incredible 'big 5'.

All the things you’re dying to ask but haven’t

Prepare for a wild and exhilarating safari experience split across two fantastic game-viewing destinations. Whilst the region is gaining popularity, the crowds are still drawn to the big name parks (Serengeti and Masai Mara) so you will be able to step back in time and enjoy your safari in tranquility.

“Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park, in Southern Tanzania, are hidden gems on the safari circuit. They are easily accessed, have phenomenal wildlife and offer a variety of exciting activities; yet they’ve remained off most people’s radar."

Weather Watch: they shut the camps in April and May because of the heavy rains. There are some showers from November to March, but we think it adds to the magic.
Island life awaits on Zanzibar and there are lots of great activities to enjoy
