Ruaha National Park
A remote and incredibly diverse landscape in south Tanzania known for its ancient baobabs, elephants, lions and superb birdlife, all sustained by the Great Ruaha River.

Nyerere National Park (Selous Game Reserve)

Kilimanjaro, Meru & Arusha
Africa’s highest peak, Kilimanjaro, is a bucket list item for many and not for the faint-hearted. Nearby Mount Meru within Arusha National Park is less gruelling but not to be underestimated.
Tarangire National Park

Chimps of Mahale & Gombe
To see chimpanzees in the wild, there is hardly a better place to go than the shores of Lake Tanganyika in Tanzania to visit Gombe National Park or nearby Mahale Mountains National Park.
Katavi National Park & Lupita Island
Remote, wild, untouched and phenomenal. Both Katavi and Lupita Island provide an exclusive experience, away from the masses in an untouched corner of western Tanzania.
Tanzania Coast & Dar es Salaam
On Tanzania's mainland coast there is a bush-and-beach game reserve (Saadani), excellent beaches such as at Pangani, and the busy city of Dar es Salaam.
