The southern section of Tanzania which has some of the most remarkable safari parks present in the country is also the least visited section of the country, reportedly visited by just over 1% of tourists coming to Tanzania. This makes the Southern Tanzania Circuit destinations a treasure trove for tourists seeking wildlife and a solitude environment both at the same time.
The major tourist attraction of this circuit is perhaps the Selous Game Reserve. It is among the only protected areas in Tanzania which offers game hunting through a number of private hunting concessions. Covering an area of 50,000 sq km, it is also largest faunal reserve in the world and a birding paradise. Udzungwa National Park which is part of the Udzungwa Mountains is home to large primate species, and so is the Mahale Mountains National Park.
Most accessible park in the circuit is the Mikumi National Park through which the highly-debated A-7 Highway passes which runs from Dar Es Salaam to Iringa. Ruaha National Park which is the largest national park in Tanzania covering an area of20,226 sq km is contrastingly among the least visited national parks in the country. The Great Ruaha River crosses through the park where the animals of the territory tend to congregate which make them easier to spot.
As the national parks of Southern Tanzania Circuit are visited by less than 1% of tourists, you can have the entire territory all to yourself to explore and admire.
