Ruaha National Park is one of East Africa’s largest national parks and is located in the central part Tanzania in the Iringa and Mbeya regions. Known for its stunning natural beauty, diverse terrain, and abundant wildlife, Ruaha offers several wonderful walking safari options.
The terrain of Ruaha National Park is varied, with open plains, rocky outcrops, and dense miombo woodlands. The Great Ruaha River, which runs through the park, is a major source of water for the wildlife and is home to a variety of aquatic species such as hippos and crocodiles. The park also has several seasonal rivers, which dry up during the dry season, creating a unique and dynamic ecosystem.
Kichaka operates year-round lodge-based walks and a week-long seasonal expedition, while Asilia offers a seasonal camp in the Usangu wetlands.
After the rainy season, when river levels have dropped, it’s expedition season in Ruaha National Park. Choose from one of four remote and wild locations to establish your private fly-camp for 7 nights, exploring a different area each day on foot.
