Nyerere National Park

Considering Nyerere National Park safari?


Nyerere National Park was formed fairly recently in 2019 by taking over the northern part of the famous Selous Game Reserve in Southern Tanzania. A Game Reserve is similar to a National Park except that the latter is administered by a different organization within TANAPA, and is therefore subject to closer and highly professional management. The name of the Park is in recognition and in honor of the memory of Tanzania’s founding father of the nation, the late Mwalimu Julius Nyerere.

Today, most visitors come here with one aim alone: to witness millions of wildebeest, zebras, gazelles and elands on a mass trek to quench their thirst for water and eat fresh grass. During this great cyclical movement, these ungulates move around the ecosystem in a seasonal pattern, defined by rainfall and grass nutrients. These large herds of animals on the move can’t be witnessed anywhere else. Whereas other famous wildlife parks are fenced, the Serengeti is protected, but unfenced. Giving animals enough space to make their return journey, one that they’ve been doing for millions of years. 

There are several exciting activities one can enjoy in Nyerere National Park. The most exciting of these has to be the River Boat Safari which involves spotting wildlife from the comfort of a boat on parts of the Rufiji River, exploring channels, lagoons and swamps. This unique activity is quite popular and a fantastic way to explore the park. Another unique experience is visiting a traditional village. The village visit allows visitors a revealing cultural experience that allows insight into the special and unique way of life of the local people living around this park. Visitors to the park can also enjoy a selection of other excursions such as nature treks, sundowners and romantic bush meals.
