The Southern Circuit includes some of the less visited, remote and remarkable sights in Tanzania. Because it is less well known than the Northern Circuit it has fewer tourists and you will frequently be the only vehicle on the landscape.

Safaris in the Southern Circuit usually start from Dar es Salaam and its best to fly to Dar if you wish to visit the south. Safaris on the Southern Circuit easily connect to Safaris in the Deep South, Zanzibar, Mafia and Pemba islands by ferry or plane, or the Northern Circuit by plane (or a day's scenic drive passing Kilimanjaro, Usambara Mountains and Mkomazi Game Reserve).

There are a few slightly more obscure destinations in Southern Tanzania, which are not part of the normal tourist trail.

  • Kilombero Valley
  • Uluguru Mountains
  • Ukuguru Mountains
  • Unguru Mountains
  • Rubeho Mountains
  • Rufiji Delta Ecosystem
  • Mahenge Mountains
  • Wami Mbiki Conservation Area

  • A very exciting adventure

  • The programme was excellent and we saw masses of game, less a leopard! So, entirely happy customers. Thank you for your efficient handling of the whole trip.
