4-days in Nyerere National Park - pure wilderness!

Nature adventures in Africa's largest national park


The Nyerere National Park is the largest Nationalpark in Africa. Extensive steppes and savannahs, numerous river courses and dominating miombo woodlands characterize the landscape. Hippos, crocodiles and birds frolic along the great Rufiji River; elephants and giraffes come to the riverbanks to quench their thirst and are watched by the big cats of prey such as lions and leopards. The National Park is also home to the endangered African wild dogs – one of the last places to see the animals in their natural habitat. Your accommodation during the safari is a Camp at the riverbank and offers a magnificent view of the river landscape. You can spot wildlife along the river right from the camp! The experienced guides will take you into the wild African bush and show you the vast steppes and savannahs on extended game drives in an open safari vehicle. Together you will experience snorting hippos and basking crocodiles on a relaxed boat safari. The Camp overlooks the mighty Rufiji River and from your rustic hut you can watch the hustle and bustle on the river. After an eventful day on safari, refresh yourself in the pool or enjoy the African night around a cozy campfire.


Individual arrival at Camp (by 3.30pm at the latest). Please note our travel packages, which we will be happy to book for you.
The journey from Dar es Salaam can either be made by car (journey time approx. 6 hours) or by small plane to the nearby Mtemere Airstrip (flight time approx. 45 minutes). Flights from Zanzibar or Arusha are also possible, so that the package can be combined with a stay on Spice Island or a safari in the north.
After your arrival at your Camp and a warm welcome, you move into your hut and can relax for a while. At around 4 pm, you will set off on a relaxing sunset boat trip (approx. 2.5 hours) on the Rufiji River, where you can observe hippos, crocodiles and a wide variety of birds in the warm light of the setting sun. Your guide will stop the boat so that you can enjoy the sunset with a cool drink. A wonderful start to your safari in the Nyerere National Park. You then return to camp, where a delicious dinner and campfire await you.

On each of the next two days, you will go on a full-day game drive (approx. 9-10 hours) in an open safari vehicle through the Nyerere National Park.

A huge variety of wildlife lives in this park, including giraffe, lion, hyena, zebra, wild dog, impala, leopard, wildebeest, buffalo and many more.
