We designed this Tanzania Travel Packages: Off the Beaten Path Safari for an adventurous couple that had previously traveled with us to South Africa and Botswana. They wanted an authentic experience in Tanzania away from the crowds, where they would have the opportunity to get out and explore the untouched African bush on foot. This trip took them to 2 incredible hidden gems of Tanzania and really sparked their sense of adventure!
The first stop on their Tanzania Travel Packages: Off the Beaten Path Safari was Ruaha National Park, a truly wild reserve where they saw several elephants and large cats. They stayed at Kigelia Ruaha Camp, a simple yet comfortable camp that offers an authentic and adventurous safari experience. They loved the feeling of being completely off the grid at this remote camp!
Next for their Tanzania Travel Packages: Off the Beaten Path Safari, they flew to Selous Game Reserve. The largest game reserve in Africa, Selous offers incredible game viewing with very few camps, so you may not see any other vehicles on your game drives! They spent 4 nights at Sand Rivers lodge, a beautiful permanent lodge with just 8 open-fronted cottages looking out over the river.
At Sand Rivers Selous, they had the opportunity to enjoy some unique adventures in addition to the typical game drives. They enjoyed a river cruise (complete with a picnic breakfast on a secluded sandbar), visited some natural hot springs in the area, and had the chance to get out of the vehicle and embark on a walking safari. Walking safaris are all about taking it slow and truly immersing yourself in your natural surroundings. Their guide pointed out some of the interesting plants and smaller animals in the bush, and they felt they got a deeper understanding of this beautiful landscape.
At last, their Tanzania Travel Packages: Off the Beaten Path Safari came to an end. They returned home feeling exhilarated by their adventures, with plenty of amazing photos to share with friends. The trip was so different from their safari experiences in South Africa and Botswana, they decided they had to return and explore more of East Africa!
