Ruaha national park is one of the few Tanzania’s famous wilderness area where one can have a rare experience of game viewing spiced up by the mesmerizing landscapes. The park is rich of plants and animals such as Greater Kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros) which can not be found in any other national park. The park boasts of her almost untouched and unexplored ecosystem, making visitors’ safari experience very unique.
The Great Ruaha River, as well as Mwagusi, Jongomero and Mzombe, flow between beautiful undulating hills. The semi-arid vegetation is dominated by baobab and acacia trees, but over 1,650 plant species have been identified in the park.
In the Park you can spot Elephants, Buffalos, Lions, Leopards, Cheetahs, Giraffes, Zebras and Impala, you should also keep an eye out for endangered wild dogs or even the greater kudu (a woodland antelope), which you won’t find in any other national park. Waterfalls along the Great Ruaha River are also well worth a stop-off as they are an important habitat for hippos, fish and crocodiles.
A bird-watcher’s paradise, the park is home to more than 571 species, including those that have migrated from Europe, Asia, the Australian rim and Madagascar. Though birds can be seen all the year around, the best time for bird-watching is during the wet season, when the vegetation will also be at its most succulent.
