Tour Plan

Upon your arrival in Dar es Salaam, you will be met by your guide who will transfer you to your hotel. You can spend the remainder of the day relaxing and exploring the city.

Overnight at Mediterraneo Hotel on B&B. http://www.mediterraneotanzania.com/

Early pick up from your hotel and drive towards Selous Game Reserve Park. Arrive for lunch and enjoy your Boat Safari in the afternoon in the Rufiji River or game viewing in the home of wildlife. Selous is the largest protected wildlife area in Africa which also varies from rolling savannah woodland, grassland plains and rocky outcrops cut by the Rufiji River and its tributaries, the Kilombero and Luwegu.

Dinner and overnight at Lemara Eco Camp on Full Board. www.lengukastravel.com/lemara-eco-camp-nyerere-tanzania/

Enjoy your full day of game drives in Nyerere National Park on the Rufiji River with its rocky outcrops and tributaries (Kilombero and Luwegu), a home for wildlife animals, being the largest protected wildlife area in Africa which also varies from rolling savannah woodland and grassland plains. You can also choose to take a boat safari on the Rufiji River, which is a great way to spot hippos, crocodiles, and water birds.

Dinner and overnight at Nyerere Tented Camp on Full Board. http://chase-nature.com/nyerere-tented-camp/

 

  • A boat excursion on the mighty Rufiji River is highly recommended as it brings you into close contact with hippo, crocodile and fantastic birdlife. Animals make their way to the river to drink and boats may approach elephant, lion, buffalo, giraffe, waterbuck and other game on the river banks to within a few meters. Crocodile glide into the water as your boat approaches and hippo appear in frightening proximity, grunting and blowing steam.
  • Game walks with armed rangers can last a few hours or take the whole day. For early risers, a full English breakfast on the banks of the Rufiji after encounters on foot with elephant, monkeys, giraffe and other game is an experience to remember.
  • The sheer size of the Nyerere National Park means that game drives are conducted in near privacy, without only the rare encounter with other tourists the entire day. Unlike the northern parks, Selous remains relatively unknown, yet has an incredible concentration of wildlife.

After breakfast, depart to Mikumi National Park to the north west with our packed lunch. This is a full day drive put through the western gate of the Nyerere National Park at Matambwe. From Matambwe, the road follows the railway and heads up along the southern edge of Mikumi and along the Uluguru mountains. Passing villages and fields on the way, the route winds its way up through the mountains and passes through the catchment forest where Colobus and other monkeys are seen. Descend to Morogoro, a sizeable bustling town on the Tanzania – Zambia highway. From Morogoro, follow the highway into Mikumi, about one hour from Morogoro. The highway passes through Mikumi park.

Dinner and overnight at Camp Atupele on Full Board. www.campatupele.com

You will spend a full day exploring Mikumi National Park, with morning and afternoon game drives. Mikumi is known for its open grasslands, which are dotted with acacia trees and provide great opportunities for wildlife viewing.

Dinner and overnight at Camp Atupele on Full Board. www.campatupele.com

Enjoy breakfast at the lodge then drive back to Dar es Salaam with our packed lunch. Will have few stops on our way for a lunch and shopping. Arrive in Dar es Salaam in the afternoon or evening.
