Welcome to Ruaha National Park, a vast and captivating wilderness located in southern Tanzania. Spanning over 20,000 square kilometers of pristine African savannah, this park offers a remarkable Tanzania Safari experience with its abundant wildlife and diverse landscapes.

It is renowned for its exceptional wildlife sightings, making it a top destination for nature enthusiasts. The park boasts a remarkable concentration of predators, with excellent opportunities to witness large buffalo herds and impressive lion prides in their natural habitat. Additionally, Ruaha is home to approximately 10% of the world’s lion population, contributing to its status as one of Africa’s prime lion conservation areas. For those interested in observing specific species, the Selous Game Reserve nearby offers world-class sightings of leopards, wild dogs, and elephants, providing a perfect complement to the Ruaha experience. Visitors often choose to combine both parks to maximize their wildlife encounters.

Birdwatchers will be enthralled by Ruaha’s diverse avian population. With over 500 species of birds, including some from other parts of the African continent, the park provides a real paradise for bird enthusiasts.  The dry season, from June to October, is the ideal time for wildlife viewing in Ruaha National Park. During this period, the vegetation thins out, and water sources become scarce, making it easier to spot wildlife during thrilling game drives.
