Ruaha National Park

Ruaha National Park
Remote Ruaha, covering some 12,950 sq km, 625 kms from Dar es Salaam, derives its name from the mighty Ruaha river that forms part of its South-eastern boundary.
Ruaha can only be visited in the dry season July-December.The park's altitude (750m - 1,900m) creates four different flora zones: river valleys, savannahs, moimba woodland and undulating bus country.

Over 400 species of birdlife have been sighted and its proliferation of large mammals includes Elephant, Giraffe, Buffalo, Zebra, numerous 'Plains Gam' Antelope, the occasional Leopard and Cheetah. The river is rich in Hippo and Crocodile. Since the only lodge is unfenced, game roams freely there at night.
