Tanzania’s Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater is renowned for some of the best wildlife viewing in Africa but a trip to Southern Tanzania has enormous untapped potential for viewing wildlife. In November 2009 we took a light aircraft out of Dar es Salaam to visit Selous game reserve and then on to Ruaha National Park with Foxes Safari, a really professional outfit. The game is not as densely packed as some of the other areas in Africa, Selous reserve being the same size as Switzerland. Around Rufiji River Camp there were good populations of elephants and lion plus the elusive wild hunting dogs which we were lucky to get very close to on our second morning.
At Ruaha we stayed at the wonderful Great Ruaha River lodge literally surrounded by big game, breakfast always proved interest manoeuvring with the numerous elephants to get to the eating area. Despite not locating any leopards the highlight must be the lion kill on the track in front of us which provided great photographic opportunities.
