Visit Ruaha National park
Ruaha National Park is Tanzania’s second largest national park and one of the most exciting dry season destinations. A wild and thrilling atmosphere emanating from its unrestricted wilderness, the great action and range of experiences along with the prolific game and predators here will ensure you of the most unique encounters in the natural world.
A vast tract of semi-arid bush, this rugged land is in the heart of Tanzania, taking fewer tourists than Selous/Nyerere, or any parks on the Northern Circuit. The park is 10,300 square kilometres and is part of a much larger series of conjoined wildlife areas, forming a massive 50,000 square kilometres overall. With just a small percentage of the park visited on the normal tourist trails, a good guide can mean the difference between a good safari and an unbeatable one, taking you into remote and unexplored areas. Being in a transition zone where the southern and eastern species of flora and fauna combine creates a huge variety of landscapes, plants, and animals. Miombo woodlands, similar to those in Zambia, give way to open savannah, similar to that of Kenya, for which much of Tanzania is renowned.
