Tanzania's southern regions have long remained a hidden gem for safari enthusiasts seeking a distinct and lesser-explored wildlife encounter.

The national parks located in the southern part of the country not only attract significantly fewer tourists compared to their counterparts in the north, but they also boast abundant wildlife populations, making them one of Tanzania's prime locations. Moreover, these parks offer some of the most breathtaking and awe-inspiring scenery found anywhere in Africa.


Our Pure South trip is an eight-day adventure that seamlessly connects two significant areas in Southern Tanzania: Ruaha National Park and Nyerere National Park. This expedition is perfect for daring adventurers who want to explore a diverse range of safari activities and habitats. From invigorating walking tours and tranquil boating expeditions in Nyerere to capturing remarkable photographs in Ruaha, this combined adventure offers extraordinary options.

Enjoy a mesmerizing boat safari in Nyerere, where you can witness crocodiles lounging on sandbanks and hippos frolicking in the shallows while sipping on refreshing drinks amidst the serenity of a sunset. Join us for an unforgettable Tanzania southern circuit adventure.
