Visit the uninhabited wilderness of Nyerere National Park

Despite our dreams of a safari experience in a place that is completely untouched by human hand, this is rarely the case. The vast areas of protected terrain often contain settlements, towns and cities within their geographic spread. But, at Nyerere, things are different. The Nyerere National Park (formerly the Selous Game Reserve) is the largest protected area that is entirely uninhabited by man in the whole of Africa. Things, quite simply, do not get any wilder than this.

As a result, Nyerere National Park is a haven for amazing wildlife. Its land is threaded by the tributaries and lakes that form the Rufiji River. Your expert guides will know exactly where the wildlife is likely to be congregating on the banks of this river that acts as the lifeblood of the reserve. Here you will watch game gathering and the inevitable predators prowling. In the dry season (between June and November) spectacularly large herds of elephant can be seen drinking, cooling and washing by the river. Nyerere National Park is also home to around one third of Africa’s wild-dog population and you can watch packs of this fascinating species as they traverse the plains.

Follow in the footsteps of the English explorer Frederick Courtney Selous as you enjoy your safari over the reserve’s varied landscapes of wide plains, rolling grasslands and rocky outcrops. Of course, if a walking safari is not what you have in mind there are plenty of other ways to see the sights. These include boating and vehicle safaris. It’s your safari so we’ll help you enjoy it exactly as you like.
