Nyerere National Park is one of Africa’s largest National Park and one of the favorite game viewing areas in Africa. The Nyerere National Park is a protected area in southern Tanzania.
Some of the typical wildlife of the miombo inhabits the reserve, such as the African bush elephant, black rhino, hippopotamus, lion, East African wild dog, Cape buffaloes, Masai giraffe, Plains zebra, and Nile crocodile. Permanent human habitation is not permitted within the reserve.
The Nyerere National Park is a superb safari destination for both family safaris and African honeymoons, the entire better for the ease of getting there and the lack of crowds.
The park has the widest diversity of safari activities in the country, offering boating safaris as well as standard game drives, walking safaris, and legendary fly camping trips.
The Northern section of Nyerere National Park is home to a network of channels and lagoons that run off the Rufiji River. This lush landscape provides a water supply for the region’s game and towards the end of the dry season, the concentration of animals around these water sources is phenomenal.
The sheer volume of games in the Nyerere National Park is outstanding. Elephant, buffalo, and lion are ‘arguably’ found in no greater numbers year-round anywhere on the planet. But it is the Nyerere National Park’s reputation as the last true stronghold for African wild dogs that draws the enthusiasts.
Nyerere National Park hosts a number of the most beautiful hotels and resorts known to the world. For those seeking fine hotels and resorts, Nyerere National Park offers some of the best five-star accommodation in Tanzania.
Among the best hotels includes Sable Mountain Lodge, Rufiji River Camp, Selous Serena Camp, Selous Wilderness Camp, and The Retreat Selous among others.
