9 NIGHT REMOTE GAME AND CHIMPANZEE ADVENTURE VISITING RUAHA, KATAVI AND MAHALE MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARKS

This is a fabulous journey through little visited and remote national parks in southern / western Tanzania and visits areas of pristine wilderness away from the maddening crowds.

Ruaha is famous for its large population of elephant, with about 10,000 roaming in the park, and this is believed to be the highest concentration of elephant in East Africa . You can also see both the Greater and Lesser Kudu here, Sable and Roan antelope, as well as other plains game like giraffe, zebras and eland. Other animals in the park include lion, leopard, cheetah, bat-eared foxes and jackals and you might see the endangered wild dog. Crocodiles inhabit the Ruaha and Mzombe rivers, as well as a number of other reptiles. Ruaha is a paradise for birders with more than 571 species.

Water rapidly becomes a limited resource in Katavi during the dry season, so animals of all kinds are drawn to the Katuma, Kavu and Kapapa Rivers. Hippo in their thousands cram the remaining pools, crocodiles retire to caves in the mud walls of the river banks, buffalo and elephant are drawn to the rivers to drink. The lion, hyenas and other predators know this. In the late dry season, there are few places that offer such a raw and wild experience as Katavi.

The Mahale Mountains National Park is in the far west of Tanzania on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. Named after the Mahale Mountains range that runs through it – it is one of the only places left in the world where you can see chimpanzees in the wild and spend time with a small group – the M Group – who are semi-habituated. Trek up into the mountains to visit and spend time with these fascinating primates not just once but twice!

Three highlights in one safari concentrating on the great wilderness areas of Tanzania! You can extend your safari by visiting the Selous Reserve at the beginning of your itinerary or alternatively extend your safari to visit the northern parks – Serengeti, Tarangire, Lake Manyara or the Ngorongoro Crater. You are also within striking distance of the Indian Ocean Islands of Zanzibar, Mafia and Pemba!
