Nyerere National park


The Nyerere National Park, located in southern Tanzania and away from the crowds, is Africa’s largest game reserve and one of our favorite wildlife viewing areas. 

This is truly a hidden gem! Nyerere’s rivers and lakes are the lifeblood of a park that is home to some fantastic wildlife, including elephants, wild dogs, buffalo, hippopotamuses, crocodiles, and a fantastic pride of lions.

Nyerere National Park, with an area of 30, 893 square kilometers, is Tanzania’s largest national park, previously known as Selous game reserve, the park is one of the continent’s favorite places to see wildlife.

 One of the most picturesque places to see animals is Africa’s largest and oldest game reserve; the park is breathtakingly lovely. Boating, strolling, and fly camping are available in addition to the standard game driving in thriving wildlife regions, which provides a great safari experience that matches the grandeur of the park. This is an extremely good safari park and must be included on any itinerary for the southern circuit.

Due of its accessibility and low tourist traffic, the park is an excellent safari destination for both African honeymoons and family safaris. The park offers the most diverse selection of safari activities in the nation, including boating safaris in addition to common game drives, walking safaris, and storied fly-camping excursions.

A network of canals and lagoons that branch from the Rufiji River can be found in the northern part of the park. The region’s wildlife has access to this lush environment’s water supply, and as the dry season draws to a close, the animal population surrounding these water sources increases dramatically. The majority of the campgrounds are located here, along the rivers and lakes, successfully utilizing the animals’ need for water to give game-watching opportunities. From July to the middle of November, when the dry season is in full swing and all the game is concentrating on the few permanent water sources, is when Nyerere is at its busiest.

Statistics that put most African parks to shame show the incredible amount of games in the park. There are ‘arguably’ no places on Earth where elephants, buffalo, and lions may be found in higher numbers all year long. But what pulls the enthusiasts is Nyerere National Park’s reputation as the last genuine refuge for African wild dogs.
