The Ruaha National Park is Tanzania’s second largest national park, but is largely unexplored meaning it has the benefit of being unspoilt and un-commercialised. Visitors to Ruaha have often felt as though they are on a private safari adventure because of the remoteness of the area and it has provided many tourists with a truly unique African experience.
Situated in central Tanzania, west of Iringa, Ruaha is a supreme bastion of wilderness and unparalleled breathtaking scenery stretching over a staggering 40 000km. The park features a wide array of animals including 10 000 herds of elephants, large concentrations of buffalo, gazelle, and other antelopes, and over 400 various bird species guaranteed to please ardent bird watchers.
The best time to see the larger predators in the park are during the May to December months, while January to April are the ideal times to enjoy bird watching and the wildflowers as the area is at its most fertile. The greatest attraction of Ruaha National Park is the Great Ruaha River, which meanders along the outposts of the park and is the best place to watch the hippos wallowing in the river’s waters or the crocodiles lazing about under the sun.
There are fish eagles too, diving in and around the river in search of food, while at night, the singing and croaking of frogs can be heard throughout the park’s hills and plains. Popular activities to enjoy at Ruaha National Park include day walks and safari hikes, while the recent introduction of boat trips through the Great Ruaha River has gained prominence as a wonderful way to explore this magnificent area.
