Ruaha

Answer the call of the wild in Tanzania’s remote south

Ruaha’s predators put on an impressive show: in the park there are exciting numbers of lion, leopard, and cheetah, as well as wild dog and hyena. They feast upon Ruaha’s substantial herds of kudu, zebra, and Grant’s gazelle, giving you excellent an excellent chance to witness a hunt.

The main activity in the park is a daytime game drive, which enables you to track the animals over large areas. This is the best way to get close to the elephant herds as well; they are present in such large numbers that some camps discourage safaris on foot. We love the fact that you can soak up the peace of the wilderness fly camping, sitting around the campfire at night and gazing up at the canopy of stars.
 
Ruaha is a classic dry season park: the game gets progressively better as the water holes and rivers dry up and the animals concentrate around water. However, if you do choose to visit in the green season, you will probably see no other visitors and the expert guides are skilled in tracking down game in even the most remote areas.
