Ruaha National Park, Southern Tanzania
Ruaha is remote, large, and full of wildlife — especially elephants. There are also lions, cheetah, leopard, lots of kudu, and almost every other African mammal you’d like to see. The park is home to the Great Ruaha River and it’s here during the dry season (May to December) that you get some spectacular game viewing.
Ruaha is only accessible by light aircraft and it’s suggested you stay at least 4 nights to make it a worthwhile trip. This also gives you enough time to explore this huge area of the unspoiled African wilderness. Luckily the accommodations in Ruaha mean it’s a pleasure to spend several nights.
