Jackal Fly-in Safari

Jackal safari: In full

Taking a holiday on the Jackal safari involves visits to two of the leading camps in southern Tanzania – the owner-run Mwagusi Camp, in a remote corner of the Ruaha National Park, and the excellent Beho Beho Camp, in the Selous Game Reserve; both are great camps, albeit different. There's a real contrast between the parks' ecosystems, which gives varied safari opportunities – some of the very best in the whole of southern Tanzania.
