Iconic undulating landscape dotted with wildlife defines Ruaha National Park, one of the largest parks in Africa. Open grasslands covering 45,000 sq km (17,000 sq mi) with 20,226 sq km (7,809 sq mi) of wetlands support about 10,000 roaming elephants and 571 bird species, including hornbills, kingfishers, and sunbirds as well as migrating white storks. Take a safari to see lions, leopards, giraffes, hippos, cheetahs, African wild dogs, monitor lizards, Cape buffalos, and sable antelope in their natural habitat along Ruaha River Gorge, a former German colonial game reserve. Many natural springs and rivers attract large herbivores and predators which hunt them.

We had a very friendly and knowledgeable guide, we saw so many animals and all the people I met were very kind and accustomed to dealing with tourists. We stayed two nights in the Park: the first on a budget, the second night we treated ourselves to more luxurious accommodation and I must say it was unforgettable. In short, a highly recommended, allowing accommodation for all tastes and budgets and allows above all a unique experience in nature: it feels really guests and strangers in a landscape that belongs to the animals. Beautiful.
A true definition of being in the Wild for the Adventurous.
Good road. Clear informations. A few picnic sites with toilets. 3 public campsites. Family cottage. Perfect national park for self drivers!
