Ruaha national park is a wilderness area which combines game viewing and a fascinating landscape. The park is rich in plants and animals such as Greater Kudu which cannot be found in any other national park. The park boasts an almost untouched and unexplored ecosystem, making visitors’ safari experience very unique.
The Great Ruaha River, as well as the Mwagusi, Jongomero and Mzombe Rivers, are the life line of the park. During dry season, these rivers become the main source of water for wildlife. Waterbuck, impala and the world’s most southerly Grant’s gazelle risk their lives for a sip of water – the shores of the Ruaha are a permanent hunting ground for lion, leopard, cheetah, jackal, hyena and the rare and endangered African wild dog. The water is also important habitat for hippopotamus, fish and crocodiles.
