Into the wild - a roadtrip to Mikumi and Selous

A safari in the Southern Circuit of Tanzania takes you away from the masses and into the wild! Doing both Mikumi National Park as well as Selous Game Reserve gives you a beautiful experience and plenty of opportunity to spot the big five: elephants, buffalo's cheetah's, lions and yes, maybe even a black rhino. Besides that, you will see beautiful landscapes and enjoy the amazing drive that brings you from Mikumi to Selous. And all that not more than a days drive away from Dar Es Salaam. Believe us: you will really discover Tanzania like never before!



Your itinerary

Day 1:


At 6:00am we pick you up at your hotel or home in Dar Es Salaam, after which we drive straight to Mikumi National Park. After lunch we arrive at the park where we will start the afternoon gamedrive.


As the sun goes down, you will see the animals in the best possible light - the photographers among you will know this as the golden hour. Shortly before six we go to our camp, where we will have dinner and set up our tents. 


Day 2:


We have an early breakfast and head straight to Mikumi for your full day game drive. You are sure to see some amazing wildlife today!


Day 3:


Today is a day of travel. We leave after breakfast and head straight to Selous Game Reserve. The road takes us via the Uluguru mountains and Kisaki across rivers and past small villages. It's a beautiful mountain road that takes you through some amazing stretches of rainforest. We arrive in Selous in time for a sunset game drive, after which we will make you a lovely dinner in our camp. We are sure you will sleep well tonight! 


Day 4:


After breakfast we head into Selous for a full day game drive. We make sure to go to Rufiji river where we hope to spot some crocodiles and hippos!


Day 5:


Today we drive back to Dar Es Salaam. People who wish to do a walking safari (a morning safari of approximately one hour) with a ranger can do so today for an extra fee. On the way back from Selous we will have lunch, then drop you safe and sound at your hotel or home at the end of the afternoon.
