Day 1
You will be met at Dar Es Salaam Airport and transferred to your light aircraft flight to Mikumi National Park, which forms part of the greater Selous conservation area.
 
Check into your safari lodge before enjoying a late afternoon game drive in this in this vast national park, which supports huge herds of plains game such as zebra, wildebeest, buffalo and elephants, as well as predators such as lion that follow them.
 
Note: As you will be flying in a light aircraft you must pack soft sports bags only, as rigid suitcases will not fit into the luggage pods. A baggage allowance of 15 kg (which includes your hand luggage) is strictly enforced for safety reasons. Excess baggage can be stored with our representative in Dar Es Salaam.
Days 2 To 3
Today enjoy early morning and late afternoon game drives in Mikumi National Park, which is named after the unique spindle-shaped Borassus palm trees.
 
The most accessible of Tanzania's great national parks, the vast open grasslands of the Mikumi flood plain are home to thousands of animals, including elephants, lion, buffalo, jackal, giraffe, yellow baboon, impala, hartebeest, zebra, wildebeest, kudu, roan and endangered wild dog. It is also the best park in Tanzania to see the large eland antelope.
 
To the north are the hippo pools, with abundant bird life including bustards, saddle-bill storks, malacite kingfishers, hammerkops and hornbills. Bordered on two sides by stunning mountain ranges, superb birding and game viewing are guaranteed in this park.
Day 4
Enjoy an early morning game drive in Mikumi today.
 
Afterwards transfer to the airstrip your light aircraft flight to remote Ruaha Game Reserve - the second largest wildlife reserve in Tanzania.
 
Check into your safari lodge in this wildlife wilderness and enjoy a late afternoon game drive in this pristine reserve.
Days 5 To 6
Today is devoted to game viewing in the previously inaccessible Ruaha Game Reserve, the second largest wildlife reserve in Tanzania.
 
Ruaha is a permanent hunting ground for lions, jackals, hyenas, cheetah and rare wild dogs which prey on zebras and antelope, with both the stunning roan and sable antelope found here as well as greater and lesser kudu. There are also thousands of elephants and buffalo and vast herds of gazelle, in beautful surroundings.
 
With over 450 bird species, including Eurasian migrating birds which flock to Ruaha twice a year (March/April and October/November), outstanding bird watching is also guaranteed.
Day 7
Enjoy an early morning game drive before your transfer to your light aircraft flight to Nyerere National Park, previously known as Selous Game Reserve, the largest wildlife reserve in Africa.
 
Check into your safari lodge in this magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its amazing diversity of wildlife and undisturbed nature, before enjoying a late afternoon game drive.
Days 8 To 9
Today enjoy early morning and late afternoon game viewing in the vast and little visited Nyerere National Park.
 
Originally named after the famous hunter and early conservationist, Frederick Courtney Selous, this great game reserve covers an area of over 21,000 square miles (54,000 square km) - making it larger than Switzerland and four times the size of the Serengeti.
 
As a result, many game species can be found here in greater numbers than in any other game park in Africa - including over 70% of Tanzania's elephants. Hippo, buffalo and crocodiles are abundant and lion, hyena, wild dog and rhino can also be seen. Also gnu, hartebeest, kudu, sable, eland, reedbuck, bushbuck, waterbuck, warthog, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, leopard and cheetah. There are over 350 different bird species too, including the bataleur eagle, and walking safaris are permitted.
