Fly camping

Camping on the fly at Ruaha National Park

The essence of fly camping

An adventure-filled combination of a walking safari and tranquil nights spent in the middle of the Ruaha National Park wilderness, this one- or two-night fly camping activity is perfect for the avid explorer.

Discover the wonders of the park on foot as you navigate through its beautiful landscapes to your campsite for the night. In the evening, swap tales of the day’s adventure around a roaring campfire and tuck into a delicious meal before you retire for the night under a blanket of a million stars. As you drift off to sleep, enjoy the calls, rustles, rumblings, crackles and ripples of the wild surrounding you, an extraordinary experience.

Ruaha boasts a plethora of diverse habitats, and as a biodiversity hotspot there are several inhabitants that are rare, endemic or extremely habitat specific and are not found in many other parks of Africa. These include sable and roan antelope, Liechtenstein’s hartebeest and lesser kudus. Massive herds of elephants move across the terrain, buffalos converge in enormous numbers during the dry season and predatory cats roam the landscape.
