10 Days Sense of freedom with Nomad Camps.
The best selection of original small bush camps, in the remotest areas of Tanzania, with some of the best guides in the country. The pioneers of some of Tanzania’s most beautiful, and at the time seriously inaccessible spots. It’s no exaggeration to say that the small idyllic safari camps, many of which were the first of their kind in their area occupy some of the most coveted locations in the whole of Africa. Serengeti Safari Camp in the Serengeti, Sand Rivers Selous and Kiba Point, in the Selous Game Reserve, Greystoke Mahale in The Mahale Mountains on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, Chada Katavi in Katavi National Park, Nduara Loliondo in Loliondo's Maasailand on the edge of the Serengeti.

Day 3: At Nduara you will be able to do game drives and some walking with the Maasai and a Nomad armed scout as well as exploring something of the Maasai culture. This is one of Tanzania’s success stories where people and wildlife are able to work together to the benefit of all. As you are not actually inside (but close to) the National Park, there is still a mass of game but you have the freedom to get out of the vehicle and enjoy bush breakfast, picnics, sundowners and exciting night drives with spot lights.

Day 5: Pick up from the hotel and Proceed to Selous Game Reserve with picnic lunch .Later in the afternoon, boat safari down the great Rufiji River. You will experience the Rufiji River by boat, meet hippos and crocodiles in good numbers. Quantities of 350 bird species have been verified in the Selous Game Reserve. These are distinctive of Miombo woodlands, and the bird life sustained by Rufiji swamplands is of meticulous interest. Kiba Point specializes in combining walks/boat trips and game drives - often in combination, as part of the same safari activity. We actively discourage long game drives day after day, preferring to offer this richer and more varied safari experience.

Day 6: Whole day Game drive in the Selous Game Reserve. Discovery of the Reserve by 4 wheel drive vehicle. The Selous Game Reserve is the biggest in Africa, jacketing 54,600 square kilometer. The reserve acquires its name from the hunter and explorer Frederick Courtney Selous. He was murdered here during World War 1. Selous is well-known for elephants. Other species generally seen are lions, buffaloes, wild dogs, elands, baboons, bushbuck, impalas, zebras and greater kudus. It was initially set aside as a hunting area where animals are plentiful but more introvert then the Northern Parks. Excursions by 4x4 vehicles will permit you to have excellent photographic chance and the probability to explore diverse sections of enormous park.

Walking safari will give you a predominantly intimate experience for the African wilds.

Walking safaris proffer a high chance of seeing giraffe, zebra, elephant, and good birding.

Day8 & 9: After breakfast check out and drive to Ruaha N/P to arrive in time for lunch. Second only to Katavi in its aura of untrammeled wilderness, but far more accessible, Ruaha protects a vast tract of the rugged, semi-arid bush country that characterizes central Tanzania. Its lifeblood is the Great Ruaha River.Beneath bulbous baobab trees, a few representatives of Ruaha's 10,000 elephants - the largest population of any East African national park, form a protective huddle around their young.
During the dry season, impala, waterbuck and other antelopes risk their life for a sip of life-sustaining water. And the risk is considerable: not only from the prides of 20-plus lion that lord over the savannah, but also from the cheetahs that stalk the open grassland and the leopards that lurk in tangled riverine thickets. This impressive array of large predators is boosted by both striped and spotted hyena, as well as several conspicuous packs of the highly endangered African wild dog.
Ruaha N/P - Dar es Salaam.
Day 10: After your breakfast depart to Dar es Salaam with picnic lunch to arrive late afternoon. Transfer to the hotel or airport for your on ward journey.
