Get off the standard safari track for a whirlwind week of wildlife viewing in the Southern Circuit Tanzania. The reserves and national parks of this region are remote and considerably less frequented by travelers, offering remarkable exploration. Watch for its crowds of elephants, towers of giraffes, and zeals of zebras on a safari experience that will feel like your gatherings separated from everyone else.The Southern parks can give you a sense of being increasingly off the beaten track, and the wildlife is progressively hidden amongst the thickets, offering a pleasant feeling of adventure.
The Selous Game Reserve is one of the largest reserves in Africa and has excellent wetland scenery with abundant hippo, crocodile, and birdlife. It has Africa’s most elevated population of wild dogs and buffalo just as lion, elephant, leopard, and giraffe.
Ruaha National Park is good for large predators, elephant herds and localized antelope species, for example, sable, roan, and greater and lesser kudu. In the dry season, Ruaha has probably the best game viewing Africa has to offer.
The Mikumi National Park, most reliable wildlife viewing is around the Mkata floodplain, toward the northwest of the main road, with the open vistas of the small yet beautiful Millennium (‘Little Serengeti’) are a highlight. This zone is particularly useful for spotting buffaloes frequently very close to the roadside just as giraffes, elephants, and zebras.
In addition to an abundance of unique plants, Udzungwa Mountains National Park is home to a significant populace of primates as well as the grey-faced sengi. There are also elephants, buffaloes, leopards, hippos, and crocodiles, although these – especially hippos and crocodiles – are principally in the parks’ southwest and are seldom observed.
A Southern Circuit Tanzania should be on everyone's travel bucket list. Southern Circuit Tanzania is the most celebrated safari area in Africa. Home to the Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park,Mikumi National Park and Udzungwa Mountains National Park, the sheer concentration of Africa’s big game in this area is phenomenal.
