The Southern Safari Circuit comprises of the largest game reserves in Tanzania such as Ruaha National Park and Selous Game Reserve. These game reserves have higher concentrations of wildlife. Other parks in the southern Tanzania include, Mikumi national park and Kitulo.
The national parks and game reserves of the Southern Safari Circuit are not frequented visited by tourist compared to northern circuit parks but are hidden treasures of Tanzania’s authentic Africa.
The southern Tanzania game reserves are enormous with a diversity of wildlife including roan antelope, sable antelope, cape hunting dogs, and a multitude of colorful bird life. The lodges and camps in the southern circuits are small and friendly, with no less than 30 rooms per property. This means there are far fewer tourists in the south compared to the north, and allows the area to hold true to the tenets of Eco-tourism.
The travel times between parks in the south are long as the parks are far apart. The parks of the south can be visited independently, or as a circuit combining various parks into one package. Packages can be arranged using scheduled air services or as road safaris using 4×4 vehicles
