Ruaha National Park

View gallery

Ruaha National Park is the least accessible park in Tanzania. As a result of the remoteness, the landscape remains untouched and is a haven for safari aficionados. Birdwatchers can enjoy over 400 species of bird that are not found in northern Tanzania, and the river, spectacular gorges and majestic trees are especially appealing to those with a passion for photography.

The life-blood of the park is the Great Ruaha River and its many seasonal tributaries and pools, making this semi-arid landscape home to some of the greatest herds of elephant of any national park in East Africa. Game viewing is varied and spectacular with large prides of lion as well as leopard and cheetah, but it is the species of wildlife not seen in the other Tanzanian parks that excite - the Sable and Roan antelope, the African Wild Dog and unusually both lesser and greater Kudu, together with good numbers of plains game, Buffalo and Giraffe. The birds of Ruaha are also colourful and a big feature of the park. There are over 540 species recorded including both northern and southern migrants.
