Southern Tanzania contains two of the country’s best, yet least known, safari areas – Nyerere National Park, formerly known as Selous Game Reserve, and Ruaha National Park. Nyerere is best known for its lush landscapes and diversity of activities, including magnificent boating safaris on the Rufiji River; while Ruaha is renowned for phenomenal game viewing, entrancing baobab forests and a sense of vast wilderness. These two contrasting parks can easily be combined in an itinerary using short, internal scheduled flights, and is generally referred to as the Southern Circuit.
Today we don’t want to discuss the standard facts of location, size, seasonality and logistics — you can find all of that detailed on our Info Zone, or you can take our virtual fam trip or enrol in our Asilia Academy to learn more. Instead, we would like the opportunity to focus on why the Southern Circuit is an excellent option for every safari goer and provide you, our agent partners, with the sales tools needed to confidently sell these destinations.
