Nyerere National Park

The meandering Rufiji River lies at the heart of Nyerere National Park

It forms a complex network of channels, lakes and swamps.

It is a great place for game viewing...

...as well as admiring the beautiful scenery.

Wild dogs can be spotted...

...and also herds of elephant.

Nyerere National Park also has an extraordinary birdlife...

...with over 440 species.

...and elephants as they come down to the river.

Nyerere National Park is worth a visit.

"My Feb 2024 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 19 Feb 2024 and 1 Mar 2024
"Yet another great safari organised by Expert Africa.

I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of my trip and, to put the wildlife sightings into context, my visit was at the end of the season so the recent rains created very thick vegetation which made big cat sightings unlikely.

The sightings of Wild dogs (now Painted Wolves) are always special and I had fantastic bird sightings from both camps.

As always Expert Africa have excelled in organising a fantastic trip, tailored to my requirements and providing complete satisfaction. I am always happy to recommend Expert Africa and I hope they will continue making my safari arrangements for many years to come.

Full marks too, for Sean and Millie at Lake Manze and Malcolm at Mdonya and their respective teams for providing me with such enjoyable stays at their wonderful camps and such great company." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 9 on a Tanzania safari

"My Feb 2024 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 6 Feb 2024 and 26 Feb 2024
"The camps were lovely and we were very happy with the level of guiding.

Tanzania is a beautiful country with a lot of culture, wildlife, and birds.

The strict rules about walking away from camp are quite different, but it is because of the dangerous animals." Read full review: 20 nights in Africa; 9 on a Tanzania safari

"My Nov 2023 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 14 Nov 2023 and 26 Nov 2023
"Once again extremely happy with Expert Africa. Everything went smoothly and was well taken care off. The knowledge and recommendations from the Expert Africa team, this time especially Lyndsey, were extremely valuable. Thank you for this Lyndsey and also for all your patience.

What we like with Expert Africa besides their vast knowledge is that they listen to their customers, spent the time to discuss our trip as long as we want and subsequently are suggesting what best suits us. Also appreciate very much that Expert Africa has been looking to find the best deal for us with the best value for money within our budget.

Asilia Africa was again top notch and such a great outfit making everything memorable. Jabali was incredible and unforgettable so was Roho ya Selous, different styles working so well together in a holiday.
Highlight for us were the wild dogs that we failed to see so many times on our previous holidays and the whale sharks & flying foxes in Mafia.

We loved Ruaha and Nyerere as less crowded, feeling even private, both parks a nice contrast though realize probably not for everyone as animals are not on display like in the Mara or Serengeti." Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 14 on a Tanzania safari

"My Nov 2023 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 2 Nov 2023 and 17 Nov 2023
"As always, absolutely wonderful.

Just want to add that we love Maruska. We've already had 8 relatives & friends use her expertise...and more to come.

Maruska is a joy to engage with and this trip was extra helpful when crazy weather threw a curve ball!

We can't wait to get in touch about our next safari with her guidance.
Thanks!" Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 14 on a Tanzania safari

"My Nov 2023 Tanzanian trip"

I visited Tanzania between 2 Nov 2023 and 11 Nov 2023
"A very enjoyable short trip to Ruaha, a park we had not visited before, and a return trip to Nyrere Park.
The two camps, suggested by Lyndsey, worked very well for us and we had a wonderful time.

Because of our flight times we had an overnight, and an an afternoon and evening to spend in Dar.

The Serena Hotel is good - but the trips back and forth to the airport were not enjoyable.
A reasonable hotel nearer to the airport would be very welcomer" Read full review: 9 nights in Africa; 8 on a Tanzania safari
