Authentic Tanzania Safaris: your guide to South Tanzania Safaris

92% of visitors to Tanzania looking for a Tanzania Safari tend to travel to the more famous northern parks in Tanzania such as Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. At Authentic Tanzania Safaris, we are one of a handful of specialist companies who choose to explore the far less crowded, yet equally diverse southern parks for a true Tanzania Safari, Camping Safari or Walking Safari experience. It is our pleasure to share our knowledge of our favourite areas such as Selous and Ruaha with guests as part of a relaxed and educational Tanzania safari.

Authentic Tanzania Private Camping Safaris

Tanzania Safaris - Camping Safaris


We operate seasonal and private tented camping safaris in Ruaha National Park and Selous Game Reserve. The focus of our camping safaris is to give guests the closest of wildlife experiences with professional safari guiding, based from an exclusive Authentic Tanzania safari camp in the best viewing areas of Ruaha and Selous.

Bush, Beach or Both?

Tanzania Safaris - Tanzania Beach

At Authentic Tanzania Safaris, we build bespoke Tanzania Safaris for our guests based on their specific requirements. So, why limit yourself to the African bush for your safari? If your desire is to experience some of the fantastic coastline of southern Tanzania, then what's stopping you? Equally if you want to split your time between a walking safari or camping safari and relaxing on the beach, then just let us know - we can make all the arrangements for your bespoke Tanzania safari. Visit our Tanzania Safaris itineraries page for some sample itineraries, or contact us with your exact Tanzania Safari requirements and let us take care of the rest.

Authentic Tanzania Safaris Eco-Tourism

Tanzania Safaris - Sea Turtle Hatching Day Trips

At Authentic Tanzania Safaris it is important to us that we operate as responsible tour operators and we always respect the environments in which we take guests on their Tanzania safaris. We have found that the most effective way to do this is to encourage camping safaris and walking safaris. Our Ruaha and Selous camps are always set up to leave a no footprint, and they only use solar power.

As well as this, we have set up a program to take our Safari guests to witness endangered marine turtles hatching - supporting the amazing work a local NGO Sea Sense does with coastal communities to protect and conserve these magnificent creatures.

Walking Safaris In the New Season

Tanzania Safaris - Walking Safari

Something that we at Authentic Tanzania Safaris pioneered, and still lead the industry in, are expedition walking safaris in the most remote areas. We offer Tanzania walking safaris in all parks and reserves, and professionally guide light weight 7-day expedition walks in Mkomazi NP and along the Wami River... some truly wild and beautiful areas.

This is the most intimate and exclusive way to experience your Tanzania Safari - imagine following elephant trails and lion tracks by foot. Combine with a camping safari for the most memorable Tanzania Safari experience!

Please click here to visit our itineraries page and view a sample Tanzania walking safari, or contact us directly at Authentic Tanzania Safaris with your walking safari requirements and we would be glad to send you a bespoke Tanzania safari itinerary.

Our tailormade Tanzania safaris are suited to adventurous nature lovers, wildlife photographers and those wishing to immerse themselves in the Tanzanian wilderness. If this sounds like you, please contact us at Authentic Tanzania Safaris with your Tanzania safari requirements.
