Our 5 Days Selous and Mikumi Southern Safari will make sure you Visit the two largest and most popular parks in Southern Tanzania on this special 5-day safari starting in Dar es Salaam
Selous Game Reserve is the largest fauna reserve in the world, spanning over 55,000 km², almost four times the size of the Serengeti. Selous is considered important enough to be a World Heritage Site in which the lucky few can experience a safari in absolutely wild and unspoiled bush. The reserve was named after Englishman Sir Frederick Selous, a famous big game hunter and early conservationist, whose adventure books on Africa became best sellers in Victorian England. Among its unique attractions, the reserve contains one third of all the African hunting dog population in the world. Witness the majesty of large migrations of elephants, get close up with all the Big Five, and even enjoy game fishing while you are here.
Mikumi National Park – This relatively small (3230 sq km) National Park lies 300 km west of Dar-es-Salaam and is the closest park to the capital. It is nestled between the Uruguru mountains to the East and the Rift Valley escarpments to the Southwest. As it is close to the Selous ecosystem and therefor part of it, it benefits from the highest game density of the entire conservation area, while it is easily to access. Although less spectacular regarding Flora and Fauna, the Mikumi national park obtains a good impression of the African animal world and is suitable very well for a short visit.
This trip offers unique open vehicle game drives, small boat safaris, and wonderful walking safaris in the heart of the African wilderness.
You can also do this trip in reverse order, starting in Dar and ending in Arusha. Flights can be combined with flights to/from the Serengeti and to/from Zanzibar.
