Adventure safari in Tanzania

It’s fair to say that there is adventure on Safari to be had in northern Tanzania, specifically on a Serengeti walking safari which is a drawcard in Tanzania for adventure seekers.

Forget flying, you should drive overland and camp to experience a real adventure safari in Tanzania. Not only do you need a reliable and fully kitted out 4x4 to explore the adventure attractions of the southern safari circuit properly, but you also need plenty of time, 4x4 driving confidence, and a healthy dose of adventurous spirit.

Adventure Safari in Tanzania

The key to getting deep into the seldom-explored Selous, Ruaha and Katavi parks is the ability to be self-sufficient on your Adventure Safari in Tanzania.

This should also be considered a dry season destination unless you’re hell-bent on pushing the adventure limits right off the charts.
