Mbeya Wildlife Safari and Tours

Mbeya City Council Football Club, is a Tanzanian football team playing in the Tanzanian Premier League. The team was established in 2011 in Mbeya City which is in the Southern Highlands of southwest Tanzania. Mbeya City FC is known by the names of Green City Boys, Purple Tigers and Jacaranda Warriors.

The south (which is near to Mbeya City) and west of Tanzania are often overshadowed by the more famous and iconic Serengeti Safari and Ngorongoro Crater in the north. However these areas offer incredible game viewing and a range of safari activities such as boating/walking safaris and fly camping. The western parks, Katavi and Mahale, are even more remote and wild – and expensive to reach! – thus less frequented by travellers and more exclusive.

Southern parks and classic highlights

Southern Tanzania Safari has some of the vast game reserves and Tanzania National Parks, yet is receives fewer visitors as compared to the northern circuit. This part is visited mainly by returning travelers or people seeking places other than usual. Needless to say, the parks in this region are remote with some smaller parks being even more isolated where it seems like the entire park will be all to yourself.

Here Are The Main National Parks To Explore In Southern Tanzania Safari:

  • Selous Game Reserve. Perhaps the main point of attraction in southern part, it is the second largest conservation area and largest game reserve in Africa. The landscapes and wildlife are quite diverse in here, with equally diverse avifauna population.
  • Mikumi National Park. The diverse landscape offered by this park along with equally diverse wildlife population is quite mesmerizing. The Big Five of Africa and the avifauna also make this park special in the southern circuit.
  • Ruaha National Park. The largest national park of Tanzania, lions, leopards, and elephants are a common sight in this park. Close to 571 species of birds inhabit Ruaha and it accommodates 10% of world’s lion population.
  • Udzungwa Mountains National Park. Another large national park located in the southern Tanzania. The mountaintops offer a unique observing place for rainforests and savannahs that run through the plains.
  • Kitulo National Park. Located in the southern highlands of Tanzania, the floral diversity of this protected area is unmatchable, for which it is gaining constant attention from botanists around the world.
  • Katavi National Park. It is a very remote part lying in the southern part of Tanzania and receives very less tourists each year even after being the third largest national park in Tanzania.

Southern Tanzania Safari is definitely a must-go place for anyone looking for a different experience and exploring something new.

About 20,226 km² in size, Ruaha National Park is the largest national park in Tanzania. Ruaha’s relative inaccessibility means it gets far fewer tourists than the Selous and less than any comparable park in the Northern circuit. It is rich wildlife and perfect for travelers who want a more off-the-map experience and don’t fancy crowds.

The Selous Game Reserve covers a total area of 50,000 km². It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1982 due to its wildlife diversity and undisturbed nature. Epic game drives, game walks, boating and fly camping are the recommended activities here.
