Ruaha

Covering over 20,000 Sq. km, the Ruaha is the 2nd largest national park in Tanzania. It's size and remoteness makes it a great choice for the more adventurous traveller. Game viewing is focused along the Great Ruaha River which runs along the south west edge of the park.

If elephants are top of your list, then Ruaha is known to have the largest population in Tanzania. It is also recognised has having significant numbers of lion and wild dog, the 2nd and 3rd largest populations respectively.

The park is also well known for its large variety of birds, with over 500 different species to be found there. The best time to see them is during the wet season which is traditionally between January and April.

Although accessible by air, some travellers choose to reach the Ruaha by road. This can take up to 10 hours, but offers you an earlier opportunity to enjoy the topography of the area and of course game viewing.
