Everything about the holiday was just perfect. Elsa's Kopje was brilliant - we were the only guests until the last evening so they took really good care of us.
Southern Tanzania Safaris
Southern Tanzania is home to some of the world’s largest and most unspoilt game parks and reserves and is considerably less well known than the world famous parks of Northern Tanzania. Southern Tanzania remains a true wilderness containing two of the largest protected areas in Africa and will appeal to those of an adventurous nature who would like to see Africa as it was when the first explorers arrived, wild and largely untouched by man.
Tanzania's Southern Safari Circuit includes Africa's largest protected wilderness The huge Selous Game Reserve, Ruaha National Park (the largest park in Tanzania following its recent extension) and the little known wildlife paradise of Katavi National Park in the West.
The wildlfe viewing in these areas is also outstanding and there are only a few small and mostly high quality safari camps within a vast area. There are good connections by air to Dar Es Salaam and Zanzibar and therefore the areas is best visited on a flying safari. Also possible on a safari in this area is a visit to beautiful Lake Tanganyika and the habituated chimpanze troops in Mahale Mountains National Park and at Gombe Stream.
The coast of Tanzania and the tropical Islands of Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia boast some superb beaches as well as world class scuba diving and big game fishing and combine very easily with a safari on Tanzania's southern circuit to give the perfect "Bush and Beach" holiday.
The best time to visit the Southern Tanzania is in the drier winter months between June and October, November to March are also quite good although it can be hot. Most camps are closed for the months of April and May when the main rains fall.
