Southern Tanzania Safari

Get off the usual safari track for a whirlwind week of wildlife-viewing in the southern circuit of Tanzania. The reserves and national parks of this region are remote and much less frequented by travellers, offering exceptional exploration. Watch for its herds of elephants, towers of giraffes, and zeals of zebras on a safari experience that will feel like your group's alone. Internal flights between parks are included to ensure you experience the most in the time available.
