Mikumi National Park x 3 nights and Ruaha National Park x 4 nights
See the best of Tanzania's southern circuit, beginning with three nights in Mikumi National Park, which allows enough time for a full day visit with picnic lunch to the nearby and recently created Udzungwa National Park. Here you can trek under a rainforest canopy to the Sanje waterfalls, which has spectacular views over the rift valley below. You hope to glimpse Udzungwa's endemic primates and birds along the way. Although not as well known as its immediate neighbour, the Selous Game Reserve, Mikumi is home to significant numbers of diverse wildlife including big cats, elephants, zebra, giraffe and antelopes such as kudu and sable. Your last four days on this safari are spent in Ruaha National Park, some of the prettiest bush in Africa and Tanzania's largest park. Ruaha has diverse habitats to explore which makes for an abundance of game drive choices. Alternatively, you can arrange a half or full day accompanied walking safari to get you out of the vehicle and to feel Africa beneath your feet.
