Southern Tanzania is home the two best game parks: Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park. These are two of the country’s largest, most pristine, and most remote game reserves and are known as the Southern Circuit. A fly-in safari allows you to link your Northern Circuit Safari, with these two amazing wildlife areas, and then on to Zanzibar for a well earned relaxing time on the beach.

Ruaha National Park

Ruaha offers excellent wildlife viewing and is particularly good for spotting predators, including very large prides of lions and the endangered wild dogs. Several antelope species that are rare or absent in Northern Tanzania, like greater and lesser kudu, roan and sable antelopes, are often encountered. The park has outstanding wilderness appeal, with only a few exclusive luxury camps available.

If you are lucky you will see lions on the lake shores and encounter wild dogs.

But you have to wonder if that is likely. Klitschko is 40 and looked awful in defeat against Fury. He would be 41 next summer and Joshua would have gained extra experience.
