Being the second largest park in Tanzania it is surprising that it's also one of the lesser known areas. The vastness and remoteness of this amazing place is what makes Ruaha National Park so special.
The Great Ruaha River, as other rivers like Mwagusi, Jongomero and Mzombe, serve as the life line of the park. During the dry season, with few natural springs these rivers become the main source of water for wildlife.
The game viewing is excellent and includes huge herds of elephants, with some herds being the largest in East Africa. The park is also home the elusive Roan and Sable antelope who enjoy the more dry, open woodland areas.
