If you want a real bush experience, then you should include some of the parks of the Southern Circuit in your itinerary. Here you can spend more time in “private” with the wild animals of Africa.
Most safaris in Tanzania include parks in the north of the country, such as the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro crater. But Tanzania’s southern parks are more of the right choice for you, if you want to travel of the beaten tracks, into the real wilderness, and to get a feeling of the real authentic Africa.
The southern national parks offer a truly wild experience. If you’re flying into Dar es Salaam, then Mikumi National Park is easily accessible by road. Gigantic Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park, the home of giant elephants and predators, are also very accessible by road or small planes.
Most known are probably the safari destination in the north of Tanzania like Serengeti and the Ngorongoro crater. But Tanzania’s southern parks are more untouched and unspoiled, and you are more likely to have your “prey” by yourself and your camera of course. If you want a real bush experience, then you should include the parks in the south in your package.
