Nyerere National Park

Africa's largest stand alone National Park

30,893 square kilometers

At 30,893 square kilometers, the vast Nyerere National Park is Africa's largest stand alone National Park and one of the largest in the world. The park is located in south Eastern Tanzania, roughly 230 kilometers by road from Dar es Salaam city to Mtemere Gate, and was carved out from the Selous Game reserve, a huge wilderness area and safari destination in Southern Tanzania.

Nyerere Park boasts of the largest concentration of wild animals and a rich collection of wildlife that is abundant and diverse.  The fact that this park is new and largely less frequented by tourists means that the animals here tend to be less exposed to humans. 

Good numbers of Big Cats such as Lion, Leopard, Cheetah are to be found here along with other large Game animals such as Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Giraffe, Eland, Zebra, Wildebeest and other wildlife.

With the new establishment of this park by the Tanzania Government and TANAPA ( Tanzania National Parks Authority ) in late 2019, it is expected that the park will be developed further and managed more professionally for a better tourism experience.

Game Activities

We offer various activities in the Park, such as Game drives, Walks, Boats Safaris (inside and outside), Sundowners and a historical visit to Selous grave.

Wild Dogs

 We are lucky enough to occassionally spot  Wild dogs during our game drives.  These rare and endangered animals roam the Park and when you are lucky to spot them you will never forget!
