Years ago, Unique Safaris would travel with our own vehicles and guides to some of the southern National Parks such as Ruaha, Mikumi and Nyerere (formerly known as Selous Game Reserve).

However, the price of fuel has made this impractical but we are able to book your flights and accommodations to any southern parks and you will be handled on all game drives by the staff of each property.

A More Private Experience

There is a difference between the northern and southern circuit so there are pluses and minuses. The southern parks of Tanzania are very hot and most wildlife is active only in the early morning and late afternoon. While there is great wildlife in these parks you will drive longer to find animals because they are not found in large numbers like you see on the northern circuit of Tanzania. While you experienced private vehicles on the northern circuit, the southern accommodations provide shared vehicles with other accommodation guests joining you. There is a greater sense of privacy however because there are far fewer numbers of tourists that visit some of the southern parks. Ask your Tanzanian safari specialist for more information if you would like to experience.
