Most often, travelers are carried away by the popular wildlife destinations of Africa. However, Tanzania is one of those few countries, with magical nature getaways that are less-crowded and are beyond admiration. The exotic charm of the Southern Circuit of Tanzania is its wildlife gems, unfolding nature’s most honest stories for its handful of spectators.

Did you ever want to get up close with wildlife, imagining yourself….

Walking in the dry bushes of the barren savannah with an armed ranger to discover exotic fruits and silently halt to respect the giraffe.

Enjoying bumpy drives to the Great Ruaha, watching a starving lioness attack a giraffe by its neck or a boat ride to watching the flipping crocodile in the midst of Rufiji River.


 Spotting the colorful lilac-breast roller and endemic red-bill horn bill or the giant king fisher camouflaged in trees or enjoying a free ride on the kudus back.

If you are a traveler yearning for privacy and actively want to explore a unique side of wildlife, The Southern Circuit Safari is certainly for you.
