    In the morning, you will depart to Selous Game Reserve with picnic lunch. The journey will take about five hours. In the late afternoon, you will have a boat safari along the mighty Rufiji River, which will bring you into close contact with hippos, crocodiles, and fantastic birdlife. Crocodiles glide into the water as your boat approaches and hippos appear in frightening proximity, grunting and blowing steam. Dinner and overnight will be at Selous Ngalawa Camp. Lunch and dinner will be served.

    • Selous Ngalawa Camp

  • Walking and game drive en-route to Morogoro town

    In the morning after breakfast, you will have a walking safari in the wilderness with the guidance of an armed ranger. It will take two hours. The walking safari will give you a particularly intimate feel for the African wilds. Sometimes the guide also performs and it is dressed as a bushman in an authentic African costume. After that activity, you will get your vehicle and proceeds with a game en-route to Mikumi National Park. This journey is the most amazing and truly wild and untouched areas of Tanzania. The drive will take you up into the Uluguru Mountains across rivers and past small local villages and farms. The drive is tiring, but possibly the most rewarding and adventurous on the southern circuit. Dinner and overnight will be at Oasis Motel. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served.

    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Morogoro town to Ruaha National Park

    After breakfast, you will be transferred to Ruaha National Park, with a stopover in Iringa town for lunch. After lunch, you will proceed to the park for a short game drive till sunset. You will be able to look for Roan and sable antelope, hippo, crocodile, waterbuck, reedbuck, and buffalo that venture to the river's edge to drink, attracting the attention of lion, leopard, hyena, wild dog, and jackal. There are many birds in the park, including Eurasia migrants that come to visit the park twice a year. Dinner and overnight will be at Old Msembe Bandas. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served. Driving time could be up to 7.5 hours.

    • Old Msembe Bandas
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Ruaha National Park

    After breakfast, you will have a full-day game viewing drive in the park. A fine network of game-viewing roads follows the Great Ruaha and its seasonal tributaries. During the dry season, impala, waterbuck, and other antelopes risk their life for a sip of life-sustaining water and the risk is considerable, not only from the prides of 20-plus lions that lord over the savannah, but also from the cheetahs that stalk the open grassland and the leopards that lurk in tangled riverine thickets. This impressive array of large predators is boosted by both striped and spotted hyena, as well as several conspicuous packs of the highly endangered African wild dog. Dinner and overnight will be at Old Msembe Bandas. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served. Driving time could be up to 7.5 hours.

    • Old Msembe Bandas
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

How 2 Book Your Safari

• You make an inquiry.

• We contact you to set up an initial phone consultation (one person or whole group).

• We develop a first draft itinerary.

• Several variations are made until the perfect itinerary is reached.

• Prior to going to contract we have our office in Arusha run a comprehensive availability check on all accommodations and request provisional bookings.

• If all accommodations are available, you are sent a final contract/itinerary for signing and your deposit is due (see Terms & Conditions). If availability is not possible at some of your desired locations, we seek out alternate options prior to going to contract.

• Once you sign and return your contract, our office in Arusha submits booking vouchers and makes necessary deposits to all the accommodations to finalize the bookings.

• Signed and stamped booking vouchers are scanned and emailed to you as confirmation of your bookings.

Late Bookings

When booked well in advance (6 months or more), there is usually no problem in securing all the desired accommodations. However, when we encounter full locations, we place immediate bookings at alternate locations and then, time permitting, present these options to you for a final decision. Typically, we have been very good at getting excellent locations, even last minute. While it is true that many lodges do indeed fill up quickly, we find that rooms usually open up as the date gets closer due to the release of rooms from block bookings.

What are block bookings?

It is common for large tour operators who organize group tours to book a block of rooms in anticipation that their pre-­planned itineraries will operate at full capacity. Many lodges allow block bookings without deposit, but force the tour operators to pay for these rooms or release them as the actual dates get near (between 45 and 60 days in advance). What does this mean for a private tour? It means that sometimes it can be difficult to secure certain accommodations that cater to group tours.
