What to do in Tanzania Southern Safari Circuit? Most of our holiday plans for the past year have been completely derailed and permanently postponed. Many of us are forced to work from home and homeschool our kids, and we have been challenged to stay put and avoid socializing with friends. We are having to rely heavily on ourselves to remain upbeat throughout this. We can all relate to this story because it has been difficult, but as nations begin to implement vaccination campaigns globally, there is a sliver of hope and a growing sense of confidence.

Dare we once again have travel fantasies? We believe the answer is a resounding “yes”! Of course, it’s not just that we can’t imagine anything more fun than spoiling our guests once again; it’s also probably one of the best things you can do for your happiness. Did you know that according to research, there are frequently other factors at play when it comes to what makes us happy on holidays? Planning a vacation allows you to look forward to all the fun you’ll have without the pressure of the actual trip. During this time, we daydream about all the wonderful experiences we will have and imagine how wonderful it will feel to create memories. This could make you feel incredibly good and increase your happiness.

Having said that, we want to invite you to start daydreaming with us about exotic locations and thrilling experiences, even though we know that things are still far from returning to normal and that traveling is still difficult. We have listed three of the top bucket list experiences you should not miss in the south of Tanzania to get those creative juices flowing (and endorphins going).

There is a fantastic and wild place where time stands still, far from the annoying crowds. You can see and experience Africa in all her splendor right here in the southern part of Tanzania. Immerse yourself in this alluring region of the world by combining a wonderful bush experience with a tranquil beach experience.



We strongly advise booking a fly camping experience while staying at lovely Jongomero Camp in the remote Ruaha National Park if you’re looking for an authentic African adventure. But what exactly is “fly camping,”? A mobile camp set up in a remote location is all that a fly camp is. For visitors who want to try something new and spend a night away from the main lodge, under the stars, it is a private, special, and adventurous experience.

You will spend the afternoon walking to reach your fly camp, which is set up in a stunning location not far from the main camp, accompanied by an armed walking guide and local ranger. You will have the chance to discover more about the “little five,” the local flora and fauna, stop to examine spoor, and spot wildlife during your walk. You might pass some of the famous baobab trees that have grown here for 100 years or more along the way. It’s a beautiful time to discover more about the birds that can be found in the Ruaha. In fact, there are over 570 species here, making it one of the top birding locations on the continent.

Walking is an exhilarating experience that will heighten all of your senses as you become fully immersed in your immediate surroundings.

Your dome canvas tent will already be prepared when you arrive at your mobile camp, complete with cozy bedding and immaculate white linen. You can enjoy the clear night sky view from your bed through the mosquito net by removing the external flysheet from your tent for the ultimate experience. You can enjoy the campfire and the sounds of nature while sitting outside under the stars. You will be accompanied by a committed chef who will make sure you have a special dinner prepared over an open fire. You can enjoy a hot bucket shower that has been set up in a private area. While you drift off to sleep for the night, your able guides will keep an eye on the camp.

You will eat breakfast the following morning and then return to camp on foot, giving you another chance to explore the surrounding trails. Fly camping is unquestionably the solution if you’re looking for a truly unique and authentic experience and want to immerse yourself in nature. Many of the romantics who have proposed to their loved ones while fly camping have received a resounding “YES!” from their spouses.

 Only offered during Tanzania’s “dry season,” which typically lasts from the end of June to the start of the brief rains in November or early December, fly camping can be scheduled in advance.

Guests can experience a safari the original and genuine way by “fly camping.” Although we all appreciate our comforts and luxury, we think that fly camping is the best addition to a luxury safari because it allows you to have a truly magical encounter with nature.



Siwandu is a small settlement hidden away in a palm tree grove near Lake Nzerakera in the Nyerere National Park. You can use a boat to travel around Lake Nzerakera and the Rufiji River’s waterways. However, this boat and experience are not typical. A delectable lunch will surely impress you during your water-based safari. You will undoubtedly be astounded by what our chefs can accomplish outside of the kitchen.

You will have the chance to get close to the variety of fascinating wildlife that frequents the lake’s waters while satiated and with beverages in hand.

One of the smallest islands in Tanzania’s Songo-Songo Archipelago is called Fanjove. You will have the chance to completely unwind and relax here in this isolated area of Tanzania. You will have the freedom to explore the island with little interruption from other visitors because there are only twelve guests allowed at any given time. With little interference from the outside world, this island has a stunning, protected coral reef that stretches for miles. You will be astounded by the variety of marine life that can be found here.

In addition to water sports like snorkeling, diving, kayaking, swimming, and dhow sailing, you can also walk around the island and observe the local wildlife or just relax on the white sand beach and read a book. A private picnic is one thing you should definitely do while you’re here. We’ll set up a picnic for you on a remote sand bank during low tide.

From here, you can go snorkeling, swimming, and dolphin-watching while watching our chefs make mouthwatering, freshly grilled fish right in front of you. We also know many lovely and private spots on the main island where we can set up your special picnic during high tide or when the weather isn’t cooperating. Finally, we also provide private dhow sailing sunset excursions. It’s the ideal opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking ocean views while toasting with a glass of champagne in your hand.


All of accommodations in the southern part of Tanzania are outlying and will give you the chance to completely immerse yourself in the wild. The south of Tanzania should be explored and experienced in its entirety over the course of at least ten days. Typically, this entails spending four nights on Fanjove Island, three nights in Siwandu, and three nights in Jongomero.
