Ruaha National Park
Safari in Ruaha National Park?
Located in central Tanzania 120 km away from the town of Iringa, the park is the second largest (10,300 km²) in the country after the Serengeti. Ruaha was originally settled by the Wahehe people. Armed with spears they fought a 4-year guerrilla war against German occupation in the 19th century.
Hippos, elephants, kudus, and zebras are easily spotted along the river. Cheetahs and wild dogs are a popular sight in the plains area and the bird life is impressive throughout the park with some 440 documented species.
