Ruaha National Park
Ruaha National Park
derives its name from the great Ruaha River. The Ruaha
National Park is the second largest National Park in
Tanzania, that covers 12950 square km and is home to 10,000 elephants
(the largest population of any East African national park), which
protects a vast area of dry savanna.
Typically there is Miombo woodland, Acacia woodland, Terminalia
scrub and riverine forests. It depends on the Great Ruaha River,
which marks the Eastern boundary of the park. The Ruaha and Rungwa
area is the home to over 450 bird species. One of its principal
attractions lies in being able to see greater and lesser kudu
as well as the majestic sable and roan antelope. As well as an
abundance of lion, leopard and cheetah it is also home to the
increasingly rare wild dog.
It lies 130 km west of Iringa. Accessible by 3 hours flight/ 10
hours drive from Dar-es-Salaam. Works nicely with a visit to Safari
to Selous Game Reserve.
Things to Do:
Game Drives, Walking
Time to visit:
Given the distance, spend at least 3 nights. Best during the dry
season (July to October).
All the usual: Elephants, Buffalo, Lion, Leopard and Cheetah.
Hippos, crocodiles, turtles inhabit the Ruaha River. Some of the

and the tiny dik-dik thrive in the grasslands bordering the river.
Birdlife is prolific, over 370 species have been recorded, some
of which are not found in Northern Tanzania.
Eurasian migrants flock to Ruaha twice a year - March to April
and October to November - joining the resident kingfishers, hornbills,
African fish eagles, sunbirds, egrets and plovers. Unusual: sulphur-breasted
bush-shrike and yellow collared love birds.
