Southern Tanzania Safari Specialists

Tanzania Safaris - Authentic Tanzania
Tanzania Safaris - Authentic Tanzania

At Authentic Tanzania Safaris, we use specially selected private campsites in Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park to ensure an exclusive camping safari experience away from other Tanzania Safari tourists. The emphasis on these camping safaris is to discover the ecosystems, flora and fauna of Selous and Ruaha using the expertise of one of the only professional Tanzania safari companies specializing exclusively in south Tanzania safaris.

An Authentic Tanzania Safaris camping safari in south Tanzania is best suited to those with a sense of adventure seeking a private Tanzania safari and close contact with the African wilderness. We aim to provide a balance between the comfort and services available at Tanzania safari lodges but with the exclusivity and excitement that only a camping safari experience in the bush can offer. These safaris are often tailor made to include a combination of camping and lodges and can use either public or private campsites depending on budget.

If you desire exclusive use of an Authentic Tanzania Safaris vehicle at the lodges we can meet you at the airstrips and provide private game drives in the parks. Most lodges in south Tanzania do provide their own safari vehicles but these are shared between other guests and often have restrictions on time spent on game drives: we offer unrestricted time/km game drives on every Tanzania safari we operate. Driving safaris between different parks staying at lodges are tailor made to suit time schedules.

We also offer Tanzania Safari itineraries and special group tours concentrating on the less visited areas of southern Tanzania including road trips combining the wilderness wildlife areas of  Mikumi and Udzungwa Mountains as well as the mainland coast from Saadani down to Mtwara.

Additionally, we also specialise in combining bush and beach experiences so that our guests get the best of both worlds.  Any bespoke Tanzania safari that you can think of, Authentic Tanzania Safaris can arrange.
