1 Night in Ruaha National Park

Natural grandeur at Ruaha National Park:

The semi-arid savannahs of the Ruaha National Park’s rolling plains are spread with acacias and baobabs and over-hanging forest, and is said to have the highest concentration of African elephants in all of East Africa.

Inside Tanzania’s largest park, the rushing Great Ruaha River and its borders stretching across two flora zones promise an abundance of diverse wildlife.  Visitors will be pleased to spot some of the 8,000 elephants and over 570 species of birdlife that call the park home. The dry months offer the most excellent game-viewing opportunities as many of the park’s residents gather near the Great Ruaha and Mzombe rivers for fine dining.

Our Favourite Ruaha Camp

Kwihala is set deep in the bush of Ruaha National Park. It’s the largest national park in Tanzania, with plentiful wildlife, yet it feels remote and peaceful, with fewer visitors than other parks. This classic, expedition-style six-tent camp offers an intimate, exclusive safari experience in this vast land of towering baobabs and dense forests.  

Head out on game drives to see elephants — the largest population in Tanzania is located here — and lions, known for hunting giraffes, buffalo and even elephants. On foot, discover the smaller inhabitants of the bush and learn how to identify animal prints and dung. At night, venture out with a spotlight to find nocturnal animals like bush babies and hyenas. Finish off the day around the campfire with a glass of wine under the glittering Milky Way.
