Are you ready to witness life in the wild at its rawest?

This experience will take you through the wildest parks in Tanzania, taking you on a journey through the unexplored reaches of the Katavi and Ruaha National Parks.

Your safari experience begins in Arusha where you will be whisked onto a chartered flight to the Katavi National Park. Katavi National Park is truly magical, wild and unexplored. This is the place to visit for the adventurer at heart while still being bathed in luxury and the creature comforts of the luxury lodges you will be residing in. Take a walk into the wilds and witness nature at her original best, vast herds of elephant and buffalo roam these plains while the highest density of hippo and crocodiles inhabit the vast waterway and streams that interlace the landscape.

The Katavi National Park is over 4,000km2 which gives us plenty of space to play in! The park encompasses the Katuma River and the seasonal Lake Katavi and Lake Chada plains which offers incredible scenery including immense wetlands, boisterous waterfalls, and original Miombo woodlands, where the sable antelopes often hide. From game drives, walking safaris and fly camping the experiences are endless.

The next stop on your epic adventure is deemed by many to be an extremely well-kept secret. Ruaha National Park boats a phenomenal variety of game and will truly blow your socks off! With over 10,000 elephants roaming the park each year, large herds of buffalo congregating throughout the area and thrilling predator concentrations you won’t be disappointed. With the vast, picturesque, perplexing landscape of baobab forests, tall, skinny palm trees and the expansive bleached-sand rivers; of black volcanic rock and sparkling pink quartz, the only question you’ll be asking when you leave is how has Ruaha stayed hidden for so long?

This experience is truly one for the adventurer at heart, one who enjoys the rugged edges although still appreciates the creature comforts and enjoys the luxurious side of travel.

  • A big thank you...

    “Hello Rory, This is just to say a big Thank you for organizing our trip in South Africa. We had an amazing time in Cape Town: the hotel location was great, the 2 Trips with Gavin were really really nice (what a nice guy !), and finally, the airport connections were nice and smooth. We also had a blast in Jo'burg at the Clico, which was a great haven to rest after our Safari, but also had a really exquisite restaurant and very friendly staff.”

  • We will definitely be back..

    “Honestly would recommend Unearth Experience to anyone, and we have already had quite a few people asking about who organised our trip and passed on your details! We will definitely be back to Africa.”

  • Spectacular trip...

    “What a spectacular trip Rory created for us! He gave such attention to detail; organized several amazing surprises, which really made the trip even more spectacular. There was definitely no shortage of pinch yourself moments on this holiday! From the moment we flew out of Sydney until we arrived back home, Rory was in regular contact with the group to ensure that everything was running smoothly and that we were enjoying our trip. He was able to plan a holiday which caught all the highlights of Africa in a limited amount of time, and gave us the perfect amount of time in each place. We could not recommend Unearth Experience more highly to organise your holiday. Thank you Rory for a once in a lifetime experience!”

  • Never been so spoilt...

    “I have been to South Africa many times over the last 20 years but it was the first visit for my wife Jenny. Jenny absolutely loved the experience she ‘had never been so spoilt’!! I must say for myself that it was probably the most memorable experience. Two weeks is hardly long enough to do South Africa justice but the itinerary you put together was just right for a first visit. All the transport arrangements worked perfectly…The hotels were first class… Londolozi was wonderful - we had an excellent guide and were lucky to have some amazing sightings – I have been on many safaris in the past and this will go down as one of the best!”

  • A million thank you's...

    “In the past two weeks, I've learned that you can't truly even begin to understand life when you're only focused on the human aspect of the world. A week spent in the bush connected me to nature in a way I never imagined. It forced me to understand an ecosystem far detached from my comfort zone, and the social constructs of different species that are so similar, yet so different from the human condition. Tracking wild animals on a safari is so much more than a physical pursuit. To track, you need to be present, take clues from your surroundings and venture off into the unknown. If you lose the track, you return to where it started and begin again. It's a conscious effort to utilize skill, patience and intuition to guide you into a world of unbelievable discovery. I leave Londolozi with a heavy heart but a rejuvenated understanding of how to better live. Thank you to my dear tracker Life who found all the beautiful animals for us with his superpower of sight and hearing; my fearless guide Fitz who explained everything in so much detail with vast intelligence, ease and insight; my wingman Bruce who was there when I needed a shoulder and a drinking game ally; and of course my beloved partner in crime, who brought so much love, laughter and light into this journey. Unearth Experience, a million thank you's for curating my trip to this beautiful country and ensuring I was only with the best. Quite literally, this has been a life-changing experience for me.”
