2 Days Nyerere National Park Safari : Any admirer of nature must experience the safari at Nyerere National Park! From its breathtaking scenery to its diverse wildlife. Only Nyerere National Park, formerly Selous Game Reserve, provides a game drive and a boat safari along the Rufiji River. You will see one of Tanzania’s most beautiful national parks on your 2-day/1-night Nyerere safari. It is one of Tanzania’s must-see locations because it is home to a diversity of wildlife and bird species.

 Aside from the crowded northern circuit, Nyerere provides a perfect experience for wildlife tours. One can commonly see giraffes, hippos, buffaloes, wildebeests, lions, hyenas, elephants, and even spotted black rhinos at Nyerere National Park.

Day 2: Nyerere National Park to Dar es Salaam

Proceed on a game drive with a picnic lunch after an early breakfast. Head to the main center of Dar es Salaam in the afternoon. Depending on the traffic, arrive at around 7:00 p.m. or later. With a land area of 54,600 square kilometers, Nyerere National Park (Selous Game Reserve) is the biggest in Africa. Lions, wild dogs, buffaloes, bushbucks, impalas, elands, baboons, zebras, and bigger kudus are some animals that are frequently spotted. It was originally designated as a hunting area because the wildlife there is more numerous but more wary than in the Northern Parks. 4×4 vehicle excursions give you the ability to visit various areas of the sizable park and provide excellent photographic opportunities.
