Ruaha National Park Safari

The ultimate guide to your next Ruaha National Park Safari

Get to Know Ruaha National Park

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.
