This 8-day itinerary sees you exploring the hidden gems of Tanzania’s little-known Southern Circuit. These well-kept secrets are no different from their Northern Circuit counterparts like the Serengeti and Arusha National Park. The game viewing is just as exceptional, the safari experiences just as authentic, the lodges and camps just as luxurious and stylish, and the views of the untamed wilderness just as magical. The only difference between the two circuits is that one is more well-known than the other. However, this is great news for those seeking a more exclusive safari experience on the road less travelled.

Your eight days will be spent in Nyerere and Ruaha National Parks. Formerly known as Selous Game Reserve, Nyerere is Africa’s largest stand-alone national park, as well as one of the largest in the world. The park’s 30,893 square kilometre (11,928 square miles) area is home to a large concentration of diverse wildlife, which includes healthy numbers of big cats and large game.

Like Nyerere, Ruaha National Park is a lesser-known destination in Tanzania, offering a private safari experience in the untamed landscapes filled with wildlife. The 20,000 square-kilometre (7,722 square-metre) park marries the woodlands of Southern Africa with the savannas of East Africa, making it the perfect place for a diversity of animals to thrive – including the largest elephant herds in East Africa and an excellent number of predators. To top it all off, Ruaha is designated UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its undisturbed nature and diverse wildlife.

Throughout your entire trip, you’ll stay in luxury hotels, lodges and camps that provide every comfort and convenience you would need to fully enjoy your African safari experience.
