Southern Tanzania Safari Options

To offer you the best Africa tours and safaris experience we offer different Tanzania safari options that suits your interests, budget and your available time in Tanzania. These safaris in Tanzania range from day trips to Mikumi, Udzungwa National Parks, Selous and Zanzibar or longer itineraries to these Tanzania Safari Parks and reserves but also to other southern parks, walking tours and night game drives. You can read more about longer itineraries on our sample Tanzania safari packages page and more about southern tourist circuit on our Southern Parks page. Bellow is a detailed information about our day trips.

One day safari/Day Trips

Please Note: One Day safari from Dar Es Salaam are a kind of rush trips

Mikumi Day trips involves driving from Dar to Mikumi and back in the same day, with the high traffic in Dar it takes up to 5 hours of driving to get to the park and start the game drives. That means the time spend for game drives is about 4 hours only which of course will not be enough to cover most parts of the park, only selected parts with high possibilities of sighting many animals will be covered so that the driver is able to balance the time to drive back to Dar and that you do not get back to Dar late at night. That being said a day trip will be most suited to those people who are absolutely in need of day trips, those who are in anyway have only a single day to go for a Tanzania safari. Watu Safaris recommends that if there are possibilities of spending a night within the park or doing a trip of more than one day then it is highly advised not to do a one day trip.

Instead of a day trip, we advise


You can opt to do the following (there is only slight increase in the price to cover your accommodation and meals – the vehicle costs and park entry fees are the same for both day trips and 2 days trips).

You can leave early in the morning to get to the park, do game drives the first day stay over night within the park (Check Accommodation Options here) then continue game drives in the second day till the time you entered the park.

You can leave Dar the evening of Friday or Saturday (or a day before if not weekend) drive to Mikumi and spend a night within the park then the next day will have full day game drives (up to 8 hours of game drives) then drive back to Dar after the safari)

If starting one day safari from Morogoro to Mikumi safari park you will have enough time for a full day game drives of upto 8 hours and then drive back to Morogoro town.
