Walking safari in Ruaha

The essence of the walking safari

A wonderful introduction to the smaller wildlife and spectacular array of the Ruaha National Park, a 2-3 hour walking safari, in the company of a knowledgeable guide, offers a truly special and unique perspective of the park’s fascinating inhabitants. A not-to-be-missed attraction are the park’s towering baobabs who stand vigil over the landscape. Their striking appearance makes for great photographic opportunities! Another prominent feature of Ruaha are the sparkling waterways that attract an abundance of game. The best time to embark on a walking safari is in late June.

A magnificent line up of game is on show for you at this fantastic Park. Predators abound and lion, leopard and cheetah, as well as wild dog and hyena will be happy to present themselves to you. While out walking, if you are incredibly quiet and stealthy, you can get up close and personal with impressive buffalo and elephant herds.

The gushing Ruaha River is at the heart of the Park and drifts into the Rufiji River in the Selous, and on to the Indian Ocean. Numerous smaller seasonal rivers course into the Ruaha including the Mzombe and the Mwagusi. An essential life force for the Park these glistening waterways compose a beautifully picturesque backdrop to the wild.
