Reviews about Journeys Discovering Africa

Ruaha National Park

overview

Safari Highlights

The rocky slopes of Ruaha surround vast open plains and seasonal wetlands that turn into a mini Okavango Delta in the wet season.

The most common ungulates are buffalo, zebra, giraffe and various relatively common antelope – with sightings of lesser kudu, the greater kudu and Grant’s gazelle not uncommon and also the rare roan and sable antelope. Elephant numbers in Ruaha are larger than any other national park in Tanzania with superb sightings of up to hundreds congregating by the river in the late dry season.

The birding is also excellent – with a count of nearly 600 species – with a variety of southern and northern birds including several noteworthy species.
