The ultimate Southern Tanzania with Selous, Ruaha, Katavi, and a superb cultural experience at Mufindi Farm. Katavi, in particular, is among the "holy grail" reserves in Africa. Isolated and seldom visited, and now free of poachers, Katavi is a dream destination for wildlife enthusiasts seeking to get well off the beaten path.

Notes

  • Plan to arrive in Dar es Salaam a day before the "Day 1" of the 10-day safari and overnight in the city. We can help make pre-safari Dar hotel arrangements, or travelers are also free to make their own.
  • In order to match up with the twice-weekly Katavi flights (Mon/Thu), Day 1 of this safari can be any Tuesday, or Friday with an extra night in Katavi.
  • For a slight surcharge, travelers can continue flying onwards to Zanzibar on Day 10.
  • HIGH SEASON: July 1 - October 31 / December 23-31
  • LOW SEASON: January 1 - March 31 / June 1-30 / November 1 - December 22
