It is the second largest National Park, covering an area of 20,226 sq.km located in south-central Tanzania. During the dry season, when game viewing is at its best, animals are drawn to the Great Ruaha River and other water sources. The name Ruaha was derived from the hehe word called ”Luhava” meaning the great river.
Ruaha is the true description of untouched nature. You’ll have to travel quite a bit before you finally make it to the park but once you get there the undisrupted natural landscape is totally worth it! The park is home to incredible wildlife, hills adorned with baobab trees and rocky slopes.
Safaris in the Ruaha Park are never boring. Be prepared to get up close and personal with some of the world’s greatest predators.
