For many, the northern parks of Tanzania are usually the ones that you will have heard of, and know about. These include parks like the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater. While these national parks in northern Tanzania certainly offer an exceptional safari experience – especially for those who have never been on safari before – it’s worth noting that the southern parks of Tanzania offer something special, and are not to be disregarded.
The southern parks of Tanzania include the Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park – two national reserves that are off the beaten track. Although it’s slightly more western, Katavi could also be categorized as part of the southern parks of Tanzania.
