wildlife view. With this tour you will enjoy wonderful game drive and see a lots of
animals. Recommend for every body with different age. Destination to destination are

Tour Plan

Pick up from your hotel in Dar es Salaam or at Dar Es Salaam Airport by your guide
and leave for Mikumi national park (transfer some 4-5 hours from Dar Es Salaam
outskirts), being nestled between the Uluguru Mountains to the East and the Rift
Valley Escarpments to the Southwest. As it is close to the Selous ecosystem and
therefore part of it, it benefits from the highest game density of the entire conservation
area. The Mikumi National Park obtains a good impression of the African animal
world and is suitable very well for a short visit. After arrival at Mikumi National Park
you go on game drives around the park.
After breakfast, depart for Ruaha National Park (long drive of some 7.8 hours via
Mikumi town and Iringa). In the afternoon we reach the lodge constructed on and
around a rocky kopje overlooking the woodland. The Lodge provide comfortable
accommodation and good food while blending into its surroundings to enable visitors
to feel themselves a part of the wild. Both the dining “Banda” and the bar, in elevated
position above the river combine comfort and coolness together with the most
spectacular views.

One full day game drives at Ruaha National Park with picnic lunch. Ruaha, with an
area of 20,226sq km. Is the first largest park in Tanzania, and second largest elephant
sanctuary in Tanzania. The great Ruaha River that flows along its entire eastern
border, creating spectacular gorges and scenery, features a large number of hippos and
crocodiles. The wide variety of animals include Greater and Lesser Kudu, roan and
sable antelope. Bird life is rich, with over 370 species recorded.

After breakfast your depart for Udzungwa Mountain National Park (drive of some 7-8
hours), one of the most interesting bio-diversity and unique rainforest areas of East
Africa, where many extremely rare plants and animal species have been identified
(and indeed continue to be discovered). Among the six types of primates there are two
endemic species found nowhere else in the world – the Udzungwa Colobus Monkey
and the Sanje Crested Mangabey. You arrive at your camp late morning for a day of
walking and bird-watching in the pristine rain forest, hiking towards the Sanje
waterfalls for spectacular views of the wide Kilombero Valley. If you wish, you can
bath and play around in the pools at the waterfalls.

Today your guide will take you to the Hidden Waterfall Trail taking you to
Njokamoni Waterfall, right back into Hondo Hondo. It’s a long, steep walk that
climbs to over 1000m, so you should plan to leave early. It is necessary to take a
ranger on this hike as there are large mammals deep in the forest. You will certainly
see plenty of wildlife on this trail. Once you’ve climbed the sometimes steep trail to
the ridge, you walk through the flat grassy bottoms of some beautiful hidden valleys
(hence our name for the trail) often frequented by elephants. Overnight at Udzungwa
Falls Lodge.

After breakfast you drive back to Dar es Salaam (some 6-7 hours) with arrival in the
late afternoon at the Airport or your hotel (or in time for the last flight to Zanzibar at
18:15 for extension ) This Tanzania Southern Circuit itinerary can be extended with a
nice relaxing stay at Zanzibar. Please ask for further info. End of your Family Safari
Tanzania South.
