Rhymes of Wilderness

Ruaha National Park

The Rungwa-Kizigo-Muhesi ecosystem, which spans 17,000 square kilometers, includes Ruaha National Park (45,000 sq km). The region also comprises two other game reserves and a wildlife management area, in addition to Ruaha. Safari game-viewers can choose from three main regions to visit. With Mdonya forests and the Mbage-Mwagusi circuit, the Ruaha River region is the most beautiful.

The park’s highest peak is Ngalambulwa Mountain, which rises to a height of 5,250 feet (1,600 m). This mountain is surrounded by grasslands and rocky terrain, which adds to the variety of vistas.

The park’s southeastern boundary is bounded by the enormous Ruaha River. The name of the national park is derived from the river’s name. This source of water also attracts safari wildlife viewing. Njombe, a second river, runs through the park, passing through gorges and rocky outcroppings.

Crocodiles can frequently be observed lounging along riverbanks.

The river shrinks during the dry seasons, attracting animals to drink. It transforms into a fantastic game viewing space. Elephant, giraffe, buffalo, kudu, and impala herds may often be observed in vast herds surrounding the riverbeds. Hartebeest, sable, and roan antelope may all be found in the Mdonya forests. Elephants may be seen in abundance in the Mbage-Mwagusi circuit.

In comparison to everywhere else in Tanzania, Ruaha has the highest collection of elephants. Similarly, due of their abundance, safari-goers can almost always expect to witness Great Kudu.

Lions, leopards, cheetahs, spotted hyenas, and wild dogs are among the park’s predators. One of Tanzania’s Lion Conservation Units is located here. Giraffe, buffalo, hippopotamus, zebra, warthog, and sable antelope are just a few of the park’s popular animals.

Ruaha is also a birdwatcher’s paradise, having over 570 different kinds of birds. Bird-watching is a favorite pastime in the park, including hornbills, hawks, bee-eaters, rollers, and many other species. During the months of December and January, the Eleonora’s Falcon may be found here.

The park has hides and tree homes that are strategically placed to allow superb views of the area’s most popular animal watering holes. Apart from the usual vehicle safari, there are inspiring chances to see spectacular vistas of animals.
