Ruaha National Park

A Hidden Gem of Tanzania's Wilderness

Ruaha National Park, located in central Tanzania, is one of East Africa’s largest and most significant parks, covering about 20,226 square kilometers. It offers a unique wilderness experience with diverse landscapes, including the Great Ruaha River, rolling hills, savannas, and dense woodlands.

The park is renowned for its rich biodiversity, hosting large herds of elephants and other big mammals like lions, leopards, cheetahs, giraffes, zebras, and buffaloes. It’s also an excellent place to observe the rare African wild dog and over 570 bird species.

Ruaha is a key conservation area within the larger Rungwa-Kizigo-Muhesi ecosystem. Despite challenges like human-wildlife conflict and poaching, efforts by the Tanzanian government and NGOs focus on community engagement, anti-poaching measures, and sustainable tourism.

Though remote, Ruaha is increasingly popular among eco-tourists and safari enthusiasts, offering game drives, walking safaris, and birdwatching. The park’s lodges and camps cater to various preferences and budgets. Visiting during the dry season (June to October) is ideal for wildlife sightings.

Ruaha National Park is a vital part of Tanzania’s natural heritage, offering stunning landscapes, abundant wildlife, and a truly wild experience for visitors.
