The park is three times the size of South Africa’s famous Kruger National Park and is also home to the continent’s greatest and least-hunted concentrations of wildlife species. While on safari in Nyerere National Park, you won’t have to worry about running into other visitors too often since the park is not often visited according to its size.

Due to its exceptional topography and since this safari is a family safari, children can enjoy a variety of game activities, from boat rides on the river to game drives in open-sided cars, all while seeing a variety of species. The dry season of July–October is the best time to visit because of the incredible concentration of wildlife near watering holes, which makes exciting and regular sightings of wild animals and keeps kids interested.
