The wildlife in Southern Safari Destinations Tanzania is just as diverse and beautiful, with large elephants roaming the Serengeti plains. On the Tanzanian mainland, visitors can enjoy a safari in one of many national parks. These include Ruaha National Park and Selous Game Reserve, both major tourist destinations for their size and beauty.

You’ll likely see lions on a safari here, too—they are known to hunt during the day! However, you can enjoy these animals roaming without worrying about anything because they have designated areas throughout this region. One park that focuses particularly on observing giraffes (the tallest animal!) Up close is Ruaha National Park.
There’s no better way to get introduced than through an aerial view from a hot air balloon ride over the grasslands where hundreds call home at nightfall every evening.

Travelers often choose to visit Tanzania because it is home to some amazing wildlife. Many areas offer fantastic game viewing opportunities as well as other unique experiences. You can go climbing or walk through Mount Kilimanjaro, exploring Zanzibar’s beaches on an island holiday vacation. Head off into the wilderness by camping at Ngorongoro Crater, where you can see animals up close without any barriers between yourself and them.
