Time seems to have stood still in Tanzania’s sparsely populated southeast. It lacks the development and bustle of the north and tourist numbers are a relative trickle. Yet, for safari enthusiasts and divers, and for adventurous travelers seeking to learn about traditional local life, the southeast makes an ideal destination. But, get here soon: the region’s easy pace is already starting to show signs of strain from recent discoveries of offshore gas reserves. Among the southeast’s highlights: Selous Game Reserve, with its top-notch wildlife watching; white-sand beaches and stunning corals around Mafia island; and the Kilwa Kisiwani ruins, harking back to days when the East African coast was the centre of trading networks stretching to the Far East.
Mafia and the Selous offer comfortable accommodation and Western amenities. Elsewhere, infrastructure is undeveloped, and road journeys can be long and rugged.
