Mention Tanzania and your average tourist thinks “Serengeti!” perhaps rightly so, since this is the oldest and best-known of the country's National Parks, part of the famous Northern Circuit, attracting thousands of visitors year-round. However, if you're looking for a unique safari experience, take a look at traveling the Southern Circuit. Less known and therefore less crowded, the quieter, more intimate wildlife experience here is what makes it memorable for true wildlife enthusiasts.

The game reserves here are:

Saadani: East Africa's one and only coastal reserve is famous for its combination of spectacular birds and wildlife. Besides the Big Five, you can also see the rare Roosevelt antelope and other species that come down to the seashore. The Wami River crocodiles and hippos are another fabulous sight. Situated next door to Zanzibar on the Indian Ocean, you can even plan a quick beach getaway to the exotic Island of Spices when you're in Saadani.

Mikumi: Easily accessible from Dar-es-Salaam airport, this game reserve is very popular among local Tanzanians and you can avail of the budget accommodation within the park and in the adjoining villages. Bordering Selous, this park is home to the endangered species of African wild-dogs and also lions, leopards and hyenas. The park is also notable for its spectacular eco-system, comprising the flood-plains of the Mkata River.

Ruaha: With the Great Ruaha River running through this remote and inaccessible game reserve, wildlife viewing here is one of the best in Tanzania. The park can be reached only by light aircraft and it is largely untouched by hordes of tourists. Known for its enormous concentration of elephant herds, this park is also famous for its fabulously diverse bird-life and scenic landscape, dotted by gigantic tamarinds and baobabs.

Udzwunga: This mountainous region is famous for its rain-forest, unusual colobus and baboon species and wonderful trees and plants. Trekking through the Udzwunga National Park can be the trip of a life-time! Local taboos and traditions have ensured that the mountains and vegetation are left untouched.

Selous: This reserve is the biggest protected area in Africa and contains many diverse eco-systems. The African Elephant is its most famous resident and there were more than 75,000 of them at last count! The Rufiji River runs through the park and is the habitat of hippos, crocodiles and many plant, bird and insect species. Another interesting species here is the rare African wild dog.

The Southern Circuit offers a very different and one-of-a-kind safari experience for those who want a real, wild encounter with the magnificent birds and beasts of Tanzania!
