Ruaha National Park: Remote safari African style

Ruaha National Park: Remote safari African style

Ruaha is one of Tanzania's least accessible parks, with the Great Ruaha River meandering through its borders - a remote bastion of spectacular wilderness, undisturbed wildlife, and breathtaking scenery that appears totally untouched.

It remains one of the most exciting game reserves with an authentic African safari feel.

Ruaha is interesting as it represents a transition zone where eastern and southern African species of fauna and flora overlap - Elephant, buffalo, hippos, striped hyena, crocodiles, lion, cheetah, leopard, wild dog and lots of antelope  - greater & lesser Kudu, roan and sable are not found together in any other park in Tanzania. Ruaha is another birdwatcher's paradise with more than 400 species of bird recorded ~ some not found in northern Tanzania. The park is open from May thru November, with the best being July to November.
