Habitats converge in Zambia and Southern Tanzania, where the sound of the wild takes center stage, and four-legged nomads become your neighbors. Hidden destinations are completely untouched, celebrating the best of East and Southern Africa, taking you on a mystical journey through a continent and its exquisite secrets. Exploring five distinctive parks, this privately guided safari combines eclectic activities with the dreamy images hidden from the rest of the world.
Dar es Salaam – First Impressions of the Wilderness
An elephant greets you from beside the airstrip, turning its head and flapping its ears before bulldozing a path forward. Giraffes and buffalos are also nearby and you can just about photograph this strange juxtaposition of aircraft and nature. After the light aircraft flight from Dar es Salaam, you’ve landed in a rich wilderness, where the iconic frames of baobab trees dot the open plains for many miles in every direction. This is one of Africa’s real hidden games, a park that covers more than 8,000 square miles in the south of Tanzania. Every angle feels wild and untrammeled, and that’s why you are here, this opportunity to go so far away from the standard trail and become completely immersed in the rhythm of nature. Ruaha is the destination that regular safari goers return to year after year; on this first day on safari, you’ll discover why.
