REMOTE NAMIRI, RUAHA AND SELOUS SAFARI – The African Big Cats, Walking & Boating Safaris

Escape the crowds and bask in a sanctuary of solitude, while you indulge your love for wildlife in the untamed wilderness of Ruaha, Selous and eastern Serengeti.

Take the time to slow down and engage all of your senses, and learn about the conservation behind these untouched areas. As you experience the wilderness on foot, with your armed ranger, you will quickly learn to appreciate the true beauty to be found in little creatures, too! Remember to look up once in a while and feast your eyes on the blanket of stars above you that seems to stretch on for all eternity.
