7 Nights


₤ 4,655 (PPS)


This captivating 7 night safari explores some of the remotest parts of Southern and Western Tanzania. You start with 3 nights in stunning Ruaha National Park, with its mix of landscapes and abundant game. Lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, giraffe, zebra and huge herds of buffalo and elephant are all in the mix. Ruaha River Lodge is beautifully located on the banks of the Ruaha River. And has 24 en-suite stone chalets with private decks overlooking the river.

After Ruaha you fly by light aircraft to Katavi to stay four nights. Katavi Wildlife Reserve is a true wilderness, and offers excellent game-viewing.

Where else but Katavi can one enjoy vast herds of buffalo, pools oozing with more hippo than mud and great river bridges of crocodile? And then secure such privileged, exclusive access to chimpanzees so close as in Mahale?

Wonderfully remote and un-touristy, Katavi offers a varied landscape of beautiful woodlands, floodplains and arid landscapes. In the dry season, there is nowhere to match Katavi National Park for huge herds of elephant. At any time of the year, the Hippo Pool puts all other hippo pools to shame; hundreds of closely-packed hippos grunting and snorting generally luxuriating in a great, black, sticky mud of hippo waste!

You can choose to end at Dar es Salaam or at Zanzibar. We highly recommend adding on a relaxing beach stay in Zanzibar at the end of your safari.


This tour has scheduled departures on a Monday or a Friday to fit in with the flights departing from Ruaha direct to Katavi. (These depart only Mondays and Thursdays.) This safari package can be tailored to suit you. You can swap to have 4 nights in Ruaha and 3 nights in Katavi. Or you can add on the Selous Game Reserve as well to stay in Rufiji River Camp. Please contact us for details.

Families - Children below the ages of 8 years are not permitted on shared activities and a private option must be booked.
