RUAHA NATIONAL PARK

DESTINATION DETAILS

Ruaha National Park was created in 1964 from half of the Rungwa Game reserve. It covers 13,000 sq km. Like the Selous, it is a wild, undeveloped area and access is a bit challenging, but worth visiting since there is a lot of wildlife here as a result. Elephants, hippos and crocodiles and kudu, roan and sable antelope are particularly numerous. The Great Ruaha River, which forms the eastern boundary of the park, has spectacular gorges, though a lot if the rest of the park is undulating plateau averaging 1000 metres in height with occasional rocky outcrops.

Visiting the park is only feasible in the dry season, from June to December. During the rest of the year, the tracks are virtually impassable. The grass is long between February and June, restricting game-viewing.
