Known as a birdwatchers paradise this is one of
Tanzania's least accessible parks. Found in the southern Tanzania safari circuit, this park is the second largest covering an area of 10, 300 kilometers
square. The park is derives its name from the Ruaha River, which flows on the eastern borders.
The park is located in a remote place and is
therefore unexplored. This has the dual effect of giving privacy whilst offering the unique experience sought after by most travelers. The park's wilderness
stretches far beyond where the eye can see.
The park can be accessed from Dar es Salaam,
which is a ten-hour drive away, or a half hour flight away. The airstrip is at nearby Msembe.
Like most of Tanzania's parks, this parks boast of a wide array wildlife, plant
life, bird life as well as aquatic life. Some of the animals that can be observed here are elephants- thought to be highly concentrated in this area than
anywhere else in Tanzania.
Of great fascination is how the elephants move together in herds grazing the lands and quenching their thirst. Lions,
leopards, the rare wild dog, jackals, hyena hunt the lands for zebra, antelopes- the three varieties sable, roan and kudu- and buffalos.
Ruaha River and its mini waves are home to hippos and crocodiles. The bird species in the park is phenomenal many of which can be viewed along the
Vegetation in the park is made up of miombo woodland, acacia grassland and baobab tree. Visitors can take part in hiking safaris as well
as day walks to capture the hidden beauty of this park.
