Tanzania has earned an excellent reputation as a safari destination over decades, with famous destinations like Serengeti and Ngorongoro. The drawback is that visitors on a peak-season game drive in the Ngorongoro Crater will have to contend with dozens of other vehicles clustered around a good sighting, while the Serengeti now has about 100.000 visitors each year.
But there is a reserve the size of Switzerland with an estimated visitor annualy of only about 5000 in the south of Tanzania, the Selous Game Reserve. The vast territory is wildly beautiful and game-wise, very rewarding. And that is not all, discover small islands like Mafia or Pembo in the Indian Ocean, go to unexplored mountain ridges like the Usambara Mountains or pay a visit to the less famous National Parks like Saadani, the only Tanzanian National Park that borders the ocean.
