This short but adventurous safari in southern Tanzania leap-frog's the more commonly visited Selous Game Reserve, and instead heads further inland to the more remote Ruaha National Park. There you'll stay for five memorable nights at Mwagusi Camp, a classic old-style safari camp run by its legendary owner, Chris Fox. Chris's passion for the area, its wildlife and environment and its people makes this camp a very authentic choice for a real safari.
Landing early in Dar es Salaam, you'll be met and transferred to the domestic terminal to connect to a light aircraft for Ruaha. This flight typically takes up to three hours, usually including a couple of brief stops at bush airstrips in the Selous, and allows a great view for the topography of the country. Arriving in Ruaha's Msembe Airstrip, an open 4WD and guide will meet you before an hour's drive though the park to Mwagusi Safari Camp. You usually arrive in time for a late brunch, and then there are a few hours to relax before you head out on an afternoon activity. Guided activities during your 5 nights here include enthusiastic 4WD game drives.
After your last morning on safari, you fly to Dar es Salaam, and then connect to your overnight Qatar Airways flight to London.
