Nyerere National Park

Discovering Nyerere National Park

Nyerere National Park, located in Tanzania, is one of Africa’s largest national parks, spanning about 30,893 square kilometers. Established in 2019, it was carved out of the northern part of the Selous Game Reserve and named after Julius Nyerere, Tanzania’s first President.

The park is rich in biodiversity, home to elephants, lions, leopards, African wild dogs, hippos, and many bird species. The Rufiji River, running through the park, is ideal for boat safaris, offering close encounters with wildlife.

Visitors can enjoy various activities, including game drives, boat safaris, and guided walking tours. The park is a birdwatcher’s paradise with over 440 bird species recorded.

Conservation is a key focus, with strict anti-poaching measures and collaborations with conservation organizations to protect endangered species and their habitats.

Accessible by road and air, Nyerere National Park offers a range of accommodations from luxury lodges to budget options. The best time to visit is during the dry season, from June to October.

Nyerere National Park is a vital conservation area and a significant contributor to Tanzania’s tourism, offering stunning landscapes, rich wildlife, and diverse ecosystems.
