REMOTE NAMIRI, RUAHA AND SELOUS – 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 eastern Serengeti, Ruaha and Selous.

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!
