6 Day Mikumi and Udzungwa Safari

Tour Overview

Tanzania has almost everything you could wish for in an African safari holiday. Despite the fact that the Northern circuit being the largest market destination for safaris where most visitors travel to, the south-eastern part of Tanzania has much more to offer just like these well-known hotspots. For those longing for extreme game then you wouldn’t want to escape the dry south-eastern part of Tanzania. Here, you are free from the crowds, yet heading to the country’s little-visited, stunning and exceptionally wildlife-rich National parks.
