Tanzania is home to some of the largest concentrations of wildlife on Earth. And, while the Serengeti and Ngorongoro typically come to mind for Tanzania adventure travel, this journey explores the lesser-visited, but equally as impressive parks in the southern part of the country. On this 17-day Eastern Africa tour, you will visit four national parks—Selous, Ruaha, Katavi, and Mahale—in the company of long-time Zegrahm leader and renowned wildlife photographer, Lex Hes. In addition to seeking out a huge variety of wildlife from lions and elephants to zebras and chimps, Tanzania is well-known for its excellent birding with over 1,000 recorded species.
