7 DAYS SAFARI MIKUMI + RUAHA

This is a perfect safari combination to explore two of the southern national parks in Tanzania.

Mikumi national park has a great variety of animals like the ‘Big Five’ and the chance that you will encounter lions climbing up trees is higher here than in other parks! Ruaha national park is not only the second largest park but is probably home to more elephants than any other national park in East Africa.

This private safari offers you the flexibility to travel at your own pace, exactly the way you like it. You will have a private safari vehicle and guide. The hotels we selected for you during this safari are Silver class. If you prefer more luxury, you can choose Gold or Platinum class hotels.

Day 2 - 3: Mikumi National Park

Mikumi National Park lies at a six-hour drive from Dar Es Salaam and is Tanzania's fourth largest national park. The open horizons and abundant wildlife draw frequent comparisons to the more famous Serengeti plains, but its location close to Tanzania's largest city makes Mikumi easier accessible. The park has a great variety of animals: elephants, buffalos, zebras and giraffes are relatively easy to spot, as well as lions mating and many hippos in the resident hippo pool!

Day 4 - 5: Ruaha National Park

Ruaha National Park is the third largest national park in Tanzania. It lies along the Great Ruaha River, is known for its large elephant population, and is a true paradise for birdwatchers with over 570 species. Besides, you might catch a glimpse of lions, leopards, giraffes, zebras, crocodiles, elands, sable antelopes, jackals, or the rare African wild dog. Game drives are special, as you drive through an untouched ecosystem in this relatively quiet but stunning park!

Day 6 - 7: Flight to Dar Es Salaam and flight home

This is your last day! Today you fly to Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar Es Salaam, from where you will catch your flight home. Having second thoughts? Then don't hesitate to extend your holiday to one of Tanzania's paradise islands such as Zanzibar, Pemba, or Mafia!
