Southern Tanzania is truly wild. Tanzania’s two biggest national parks, Nyerere and Ruaha, protect amazing ecosystems centered around the Rufiji and Ruaha Rivers. The area in Nyerere National Park encompasses the fabled Selous. In both parks and adjacent protected areas wild things continue to hunt and be hunted, to court and raise little ones, and to respond to natural seasons – with little influence from humans.
This is an incredible place to witness – and to design images with outstanding species and beautiful landscapes. The Ruaha is famous for elephants. The Rufiji has outstanding populations of Nile Crocodiles and Hippos. Wild dogs roam there, along with a full compliment of cats. The giraffes are outstanding, and the birds just won’t quit: from raptors to storks, to herons, to kingfishers and bee-eaters – you will be creating images of species that are not easy to photograph and not found just anywhere!
The Ruaha River may be the most scenic river in southern Africa. There the baobab trees can easily be ‘designed into’ outstanding landscape images.
Off the beaten path and most easily accessed by small planes, southern Tanzania isn’t crowded – most times we work a scene no other humans are in sight!
We have designed this safari around photographer needs and around an exciting window between two wet seasons. We can’t wait to share it with you!
