Welcome to Tanzania

Southern Tanzania to be Precise!

While Tanzania is a highly popular tourist destination, there is still an exciting array of diverse and pure areas to gently explore, at nature's own pace.

Southern Tanzania has a lot less camps and lodges than in the north, making it much wilder and more adventurous to navigate.

We are proud to be part of 3 exceptional areas that give you the luxury of indulging in the exquisite charm of Tanzania while avoiding the crowds. Lose yourself to feeling the bespoke exclusivity that we are known for providing.

Choose from eastern savanna settings in Tanzania's newest national park: Nyerere, at the northern end of the huge Selous Game reserve; Africa's largest and oldest. The new park is a designated photographer's area, divided from the rest of the reserve by the mighty Rufiji River.  Across to the east are far away parts of Ruaha National Park; described as where 2 biomes meet to offer the feeling of combined landscapes: east & south Africa. For a beach retreat to compliment your safari, there is Fanjove island which is one of the 6 small "Robinson Crusoe" islands in the Songo Songo Archipelago, rich with marine life and a gloriously showcasing conservation.

We present to you this exceptional collection of properties in the tranquil surrounds of Southern Tanzania, managed by one of the oldest and best established safari experts who have been operating in the area for 32 years! 

Nyerere National Park
in Selous Game Reserve

Nyerere is Africa's largest national park!

Set within the Selous Game Reserve, a UNESCO world heritage site that is 54,600 square kilometers (bigger than Switzerland!) comprised of a vast wilderness with forests, grassy plains, mountains and open woodlands.

Selous Game reserve is twice the size of Serengeti National Park in Kenya and three times Kruger National Park in South Africa.

The reserve is split into 2 sections: the northern half which is now a national park and dedicated photographer's area, and the southern half which has hunting concessions. We only offer trips to the northern (national park) where there is no hunting. See Wild Travels does not provide any type of hunting trips.

The two halves of the reserve are separated by the Rufuji river.

And we know the perfect game viewing spots in the park that are lost within it's expansiveness, on the shores of lake Nserakera.

Ruaha National Park

Ruaha National Park is 20,226 km2 (7,809 sq mi), making it the largest protected area in Tanzania and East Africa.

Ruaha is part of an extensive ecosystem, including Rungwa Game Reserve, Usangu Game Reserve, and several other protected areas.
The name of the park is derived from the Great Ruaha River, which brings superb game viewing.

There is a bimodal pattern of rain forest; the short rainfall season begins November to February, while the long season is between March and April. The park experiences its dry season between June and October.

We offer idyllic exclusivity to explore these varying landscapes, 60 kms away from all other camps.

The name Ruaha was derived from the hehe word called ''Luhava'' meaning the great river.

Elephants are another of Ruaha's highlights, where it is believed to have the highest concentration of them than any National Park in East Africa.
