Ruaha National Park
Ruaha National Park is among the few Tanzania’s famous wilderness area where one can have a rare experience of game viewing spiced up by the fascinating landscape. The park is rich of flora and fauna, with wildlife such as Greater Kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros) which can not be found in any other national park. The park boasts of her almost untouched and unexplored ecosystem, making visitors’ safari experience very unique.
The Great Ruaha River as other rivers like Mwagusi, Jongomero and Mzombe serve as the lifeline of the park. During the dry season, these rivers become mostly the main source of water for wildlife. There are few natural springs serving the same purpose.
In the peak of the dry season, elephants obtain water from dry sand rivers using their front feet and trunks. The remaining water along the Great Ruaha River is also an important habitat for hippopotamus, fish and crocodiles.
