West Tanzania presents a unique opportunity to escape the tourist crowds and enter the hear of the bush. You can see chimpanzees in their natural habitat at Gombe Stream or Mahale Mountains and trek through breathtaking forests. Kitavi is exceptional for hippo and lion.
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.
Because of the extreme distances involved in visiting these regions, most packages here are flying safaris. Safaris in the Southern Circuit usually start from Dar es Salaam. 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).
