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: Hike in Udzungwa to the Sanje waterfalls

There are no paved roads in this national park, which means it’s perfect for shorter and longer hikes. The four-hour hike to the Sanje waterfalls is both challenging and refreshing, as you hike up the mountain but can reward yourself with a plunge at the bottom of the waterfall. Along the way, you might just spot one of those rare monkeys in the trees or see elephant tracks (of so-called mountain elephants). Keep in mind that it can be hot during midday, but if you stay in the shade and hydrated, this is a great walk!

Day 5 - 6: 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 7 - 8: 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!
