Journey Off the Beaten Track

For those who want a journey off the beaten track (even more so than the average safari adventure) Ruaha is the place for you!

Although a lesser-known park, this is the biggest national park in East Africa. It’s a fascinating stretch of land, with baobabs dotting the horizon and over 1,600 species of plant which make the environment unlike any other.

Ruaha is famous for being the most rural and untouched national park. The Great Ruaha River, the heart, and soul of the park, is chock full of hippos and crocodiles, making for some exciting game viewing.

Once home to the largest population of elephants in Africa, it now holds over 15,000 elephants in total. This park is also home to 10% of the world’s lion population.

For a unique experience exploring the wonders of Tanzanian wilderness, go to Ruaha.
