16 reasons why you should visit the Ruaha National Park

Did you know that the Ruaha National Park is the largest national park in Tanzania?

Covering an area of approximately 23,000 square kilometres, the Ruaha National Park is home to a large variety of flora and fauna which includes elephants, buffalos, antelopes and some of rare and endanger
ed species such as wild dogs.

If you’re thinking about going on a safari to Tanzania, here are 16 reasons why you should visit the Ruaha National Park.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘Peek-a-boo’ A male dik-dik hides and peers through a bush in the Ruaha woodlands. Among the smallest African antelopes, the adorable dik-dik stands only ~30-40cm/12-16in tall with an average weight of 4.5kg/11lbs. Given its small statue that makes the animal vulnerable as prey, dik-diks seek dense bush and grass habitats that provide good coverage as well as food. The antelope got its name by the sound it makes when threatened by a predator. As the dik-dik flees in a zig-zag pattern, the dik-dik will whistle through its nose and make a crying sound that sounds like “dik-dik”. _____ Care of the wildlife. #africanamazing #african_portraits #allnatureshots @andbeyondsafari #animalelite #animalpolis #animal_sultans #exclusive_animals #ig_africa #ig_discover_wildlife #igs_africa #igscwildlife #loves_africa #majestic_wildlife @asiliaafrica #mysafaristory #natgeowild #ruaha #splendid_animals #travelandbeyond #super_africa #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifephotographic #WildlifePlanet #wildlife_seekers #wildlife_perfection #wildlifepage @wildplanetphotomag #wildlifephotographic #world_bestanimal #wu_africa #dikdik
