RUAHA NATIONAL PARK

Ruaha National Park is the largest National Park in Tanzania with an area covering about 20,226 square kilometers. The game viewing starts the moment the plane touches down. The enormous Baobab trees are a key feature of Ruaha, where almost every individual tree bears the scars of the huge elephant population. Elephants relish the succulent bark of Baobab trees and gouge into the tree trunks with their powerful tusks.

The Ruaha National park is a home to a large number of Elephants, Lions, Leopards, Buffaloes, Cheetahs, Greater and Lesser Kudu, Grant’s Gazelles, Zebras, Hippos, Crocodiles and many more. Also found in the park are Ostrich and more than 571 species of birds which makes it a Birds’ paradise.
