ruaha

Ruaha is a pristine wilderness virtually untouched by development.  You will find no large lodges or minibuses here.  Reminiscent of the unspoiled Katavi National Park but far more accessible, you will be surrounded by rugged semi-arid bush country whose life blood is the Great Ruaha River.

Game is plentiful and varied in the dry season (traditionally July-November).   Ruaha is home to 10,000 elephant (the largest population of any East African national park) and a goodly number of buffalo, zebra, lion, cheetah and leopard.  Several conspicuous packs of the highly endangered African wild dog as well as the opportunity to see greater and lesser kudu and the majestic sable and roan antelope is the icing on the cake. 

Bird lovers will find much to like amongst Ruaha’s 450 bird species including the crested barbet, yellow-collared lovebird and ashy starling. Bird watching is best in the wet season (usually January-April).  Be prepared for lots of tsetse flies in the Park.
