Ruaha National Park is located in the heart of the country and considered the 'other park' on the Southern circuit. Ruaha's relative inaccessibility has resulted in a park that takes far fewer tourists than its neighbor the Selous and far fewer than any park in the Northern circuit. The rewards of Ruaha is a park filled with wild landscapes of baobab studded hills and rocky escarpments, playing host to an excellent level of game including superb concentrations of predator wildlife; cheetah, lions, leopards and hyenas.
Ruaha is certainly a wilder park than its neighbor the Selous, and ultimately has the better game viewing, albeit at the lack of any boating safaris. Overall an incredibly rewarding place to be on safari and an amazing addition to any Tanzania safari holiday. The game viewing in Ruaha is some of the best you will find in Tanzania with very few tourists and offers superb value. This park includes elephant and buffalo herds too. It is the park's ability to provide species from east and southern Africa together that excites predator wildlife enthusiasts. What you can guarantee from Ruaha is great game in a truly wild and authentic environment that is huge and still untouched. Overall an absolutely superb and affordable place to be on safari.
