See a diversity of animal species among rainforest, woodland and savannah – or go on a walking safari
Ruaha is the Serengeti of the south and the best-kept secret in Tanzania. This is where Miombo woodland meets the East Africa rainforest and savannah, providing a diverse habitat and ecosystem to support a diversity of animal species. You’ll find both the southern greater kudu and the northern lesser kudu here, and Ruaha has the southernmost distribution of Grant’s gazelle. Other animals you can see – either from a safari vehicle or on a walking safari – include roan and sable antelope, wild dog, buffalo, lion, leopard and elephant.
A chartered or scheduled flight from Dar es Salaam to the park's airstrip is the most convenient method to get to Ruaha.
Flights connect all of the parks on the southern circuit safari.
Flights are also accessible from Arusha town, which serves as the starting point for the northern safari circuit.
Ruaha National Park is one of the world's most beautiful national parks and is located in Tanzania.
There are plenty of different options for accommodation in Ruaha National Park, from hotels to luxury safari camps and lodges. Some examples of this are; Kichaka Camp, Jabali Ridge, Ruaha River Lodge and much more.
