Walking & Fly-Camping in Africa’s Biggest Park
Combine foot, boat and vehicle on a safari in the vast and remote wilds of Nyerere National Park. This itinerary includes two nights of fly-camping bookended by nights at a luxury fixed camp.
At over 30,000km2, Nyerere is Africa’s largest national park. It was established in 2019 in the northern sector of Selous Game Reserve, and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its biodiversity. The park has healthy numbers of the full range of East African game animals and their predators, and is a birding hotspot with over 400 recorded species.
Given its size and remoteness, most visitors to the park fly in to one of its airstrips. A number of lodges in the park offer day walks, and one runs overnight fly-camping, combining boat, vehicle and foot travel.
