Scattered across the south of Tanzania, Foxes Safari Camps offers the perfect destinations for encountering the amazing diversity of wildlife that makes its home in this vast, untamed land.

The seven properties are spread across the region, from Katavi Wildlife Camp in the west to Lazy Lagoon Island Lodge on the east coast. With most safari travellers making a beeline for the north, these remote tracts present adventurous types with a more intimate affair: wild herds silhouetted against the horizon, rather than hordes of safari vehicles.

Having lived in Tanzania for over 40 years, the Fox family pride themselves on offering shared experiences that bring the wilderness to life, including access to rarely glimpsed spectacles. A typical day could start with a trip to watch the Big Five stir, before returning to find a delicious breakfast table laid out in the bush. Come evening, a sundowner around the campfire will really hit the spot after the heat and dust of the day. 

Tents are strategically dotted throughout sites for maximum privacy, as well as to enable travellers to continue viewing game from their verandah — or even while sitting in bed.

The Fox’s first camp, the Ruaha River Lodge, in the Ruaha National Park, is set on a riverbank strewn with game and over 570 bird species. In the west, the lodge at Katavi National Park offers the chance to see herds of up to 2,000 buffalo, and East Africa’s highest concentration of hippos and crocodiles. Rufiji River Camp can be found in the Selous Game Reserve, where travellers can enjoy boat safaris along the Rufiji River. Between Selous and Ruaha lies Mufindi Highland Lodge, surrounded by forests and tea plantations in the cool hills of the Southern Highlands. To the north sits Mikumi National Park, home to Vuma Hills Tented Camp, with its rich birdlife and abundant game, and Stanley’s Kopje, home to the Mwanamboga water hole. The light here makes it exceptionally good for photography.

In the east is Lazy Lagoon, a private island, where the waves lap against the white sandy beach and travellers can explore the wildlife-rich mangroves and dive into the warm Indian Ocean.
