Ruaha National Park

More About Ruaha National Park

The herbivores of this park, including Grant’s gazelle, lesser and greater kudu, roan antelope, impala, and waterbuck face the daily challenge of evading a range of predators including several feelings of pride of lions and other cats such as leopards and cheetahs. They also face a threat from both the spotted and striped hyena as well as packs of the endangered wild dog.

Walking safaris are offered in Ruaha giving an exceptional opportunity to experience this true wilderness area on a one-to-one basis with nature. These are provided only at a few camps at an additional cost paid directly to the camp. Naturally, vehicle based game viewing is also possible and the park features an extensive game trail network.

If you are looking for elephants, Ruaha National Park is the place to be. With more than 10,000 elephants, the park has the largest population of any in East Africa.
