Ruaha National Park
Located in central Tanzania, and usually included in a southern country safari circuit, Ruaha National Park is not to be missed. It is part of a whopping 150 000 sq. km wilderness expanse, and it is the largest national park in Tanzania. The beauty of Ruaha is that it is not often full of tourists. The peak dry season is when its already excellent game viewing gets even better as predators are seen in high numbers, stalking the herbivorous species gathered at the remaining waterholes. The landscape is scattered with ancient baobabs, and it hosts a thrilling combination of miombo woodland areas, as well as the dry acacia vegetation, which each have their suited species.Enquire Now
Raw and uncommercial, visitors to Ruaha are getting a fully immersive wilderness experience without the crowds that flock to the north of the country, and there is no compromise on wildlife. Predators, including leopard, hyena, cheetah, wild dog, and particularly lion (of which the park is home to 10% of Africa’s population) are spotted frequently, and in such an exclusive environment, these sightings are some of the best in the country. Elephant and buffalo are present in large herds, and the equally present Ruaha River has forever been the life blood of the park. The staggering scenery, the size, and the exclusivity of Ruaha makes it certainly worth the trip.
