Nyerere National Park is one of the biggest national parks and wildlife refuges in Africa. It is situated in the northern region of the Selous Game Reserve in southern Tanzania. Explorer Fredrick Courtney Selous, also known as Selous, was killed in battle along the River Rufiji. Selous was the surname of explorer Fredrick Courtney Selous, who was killed in battle along the Rufiji River. Nyerere National Park was named after Tanzania’s first president, the late Mwalimu Julius Nyerere. The Nyerere National Park is home to many different species of birds and reptiles in addition to almost all of Africa’s well-known animals. Due to this, Nyerere National Park was already recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1982, and the UN lists it as one of the top 25 bio diverse regions in the world. With 1300 animals, the park is home to the largest population of African wild dogs on the entire continent. There are also 3,700 lions, one of the continent’s largest lion populations, and more than half of Tanzania’s elephant population.
Mikumi National park is the fifth largest National Park in Tanzania and is situated 286 kilometers from Dar es Salaam. Elephants, buffalo, and zebras migrate to and from the park’s northern region because it shares an ecosystem with Nyerere National Park. In the park’s northwest, in the Mkata Floodplains, there are grass savannas similar to those found in the Serengeti. A large population of wildlife, including buffalo, wild dogs, eland, elephant, giraffe, hartebeest, zebra, leopard, lion, impala, sable antelope, warthog, waterbuck, wildebeest, and greater kudu, is supported by the southern depressions that create watercourses that flow to the Mkata River. Impala, reedbuck, and yellow baboons are frequently spotted in the Kisungura area along the Mkata River.
Our guide will pick you up from Dar es Salaam on the first day of the safari and take you to the Selous Game Reserve. Because Selous is quite far away, you will arrive around midday, have lunch, and then go for a boat ride on the Rufiji River. Crocodiles and hippos, as well as other animals, can be seen here as they congregate to quench their thirst. If you’re lucky, you might witness crocodiles using this opportunity to hunt their prey.
Early breakfast is followed by a game drive and picnic lunch. Take in the beautiful scenery of the Selous Game Reserve and look for additional animals you may have missed. The Selous region, which has unspoiled African wilderness and rolling savanna plains, is about the size of Switzerland. Keep an eye out for a variety of animals, such as giraffes, elephant herds, African wild dogs, and many more. Have fun eating your picnic lunch in the wild. You will have the chance to observe nature and wildlife up close during a guided walking safari through the park’s plains later in the late afternoon.
For a chance to see more wild game in the park, get up very early in the morning. After breakfast, board a transfer to Mikumi National Park, another fantastic safari location to keep an eye out for, with your lunch packed. As you wait for dinner and your overnight stay at Camp Bastian, check in at the lodge and unwind.
An early morning game drive through Mikumi National Park will allow you to spot a variety of local wildlife, including elephants, lions, wild dogs, zebras, hyenas, buffalo, wildebeest, elands, hartebeest, crocodiles, and lizards. After breakfast, set out for drive to Dar es Salaam with your lunch packed arriving in plenty of time for your ferry back to your home country.
