  • Gary and Kat travelled to the Selous, Ruaha and Zanzibar in TanzaniaHi Michele, thanks for organizing a really great holiday for us, we had a great time!IMPALA CAMP: we loved this camp and wished we could have stayed longer….the food was good and Barbara was great and everyone was really friendly, our guide was Mokila and our driver was Khalid, they were both very enthusiastic… the jeeps were good and we had a jeep to ourselves for the 3 days… we loved it here…RUAHA: yes very different and a lot drier than Selous! It was better for game viewing as you could get closer to the animals. MWAGUSI CAMP: nice camp, but we found it very ‘restricted’ compared to Impala. RAS NUNGWI: a nice place, we had a good room (4) with a lovely view……it was a nice place to chill out for a few days and wash off the dirt from the bush! Overall it was a really great holiday, and many thanks for organizing for us and making it all happen, we look forward to the 2013 itineary ideas!Gary and Kat travelled to the Selous, Ruaha and Zanzibar in Tanzania

Wildlife regions and attractions in Tanzania

Generally, when planning a safari through Tanzania it is important to remember a couple of points relating to the ‘status’ of land protection. In Tanzania, ‘National Park’ status demands the highest protection to an area, and although there are odd instances where different rules may apply, in the main you will be restricted to on-road driving during the day. Walking will be limited and night drives will not be available. Game Reserves offer slightly less protection to the environment and, historically, were the areas in which hunting safaris took place. Today, some game reserves such as the Selous, have non-hunting designated areas where photographic safaris take place. Walking will be available and, in some instances, so too will night drives or river safaris. Conservation Areas offer the least protection and it is normal for there to be human settlement within the area, here the Conservation status is in place purely to restrict ‘mass development’.
