We continue our journey further inland to the Udzungwa Mountains National Park. This is a mountainous area covered by dense rainforest. This part of Tanzania is rarely visited by tourists and you can really feel the authentic African atmosphere. We make a hike in the rainforest towards the top of a waterfall where you can enjoy a magnificent view over the whole area. On the way we look out for indigenous animals like tropical birds and monkeys. We spend the night in a beautiful lodge on the foot on the mountains. Meals are provided.

We leave the Udzungwa Mountains and head further inland towards Ruaha National Park, the largest national park of Tanzania and often referred to as 'Tanzania's best kept secret'. It is a vast area of wild untouched nature with an abundance of wild animals. On the way we stop in Iringa, the region's capital to do groceries and have lunch. At the end of the afternoon we arrive in Ruaha where we stay in little huts in the middle of the park. Often animals come close to the camp. We bring a cook who will provide meals during our stay in the park.

Sunday 3 and Monday 4 February

We spend two full days in Ruaha National Park. We explore different areas of the park with our specialty prepared land cruiser. Chances are good we will see large animals like elephants, lions, hippos, crocodiles, buffaloes, giraffes, etc. If we are lucky we will also see leopards, and maybe even a cheeta. Virtually all big African mammals live in this park, except rhinos. You can also do a 'walking safari', where you will walk through the bush on foot under protection of armed guards. One morning we will go out early at dawn to see the sunrise in the park . This is the best chance to see lions hunting. Meals are provided by our chef and in the evening we relax around the campfire enjoying the stars in the African sky and the sounds of the wildlife around us.
