The southern national parks in Tanzania stand out not only for their lower visitor numbers compared to those in the north but also for harboring some of the largest wildlife populations in the country and arguably, some of Africa's most breathtaking and dramatic landscapes.

This eight-day Pure South itinerary seamlessly connects two key areas in Southern Tanzania: Ruaha National Park and Nyerere National Park (formerly known as the Selous). This combination of destinations provides a range of safari activities for adventurous travelers seeking diverse safari experiences and varied habitats, from walking and boating adventures in Nyerere to unparalleled photographic opportunities in Ruaha.
