Ruaha National Park is the largest national park in Tanzania (and all of East Africa), and is remote and wild. Ruaha National Park covers an area of about 20,226 sq km and is truly located in the middle of Tanzania. The park has an extensive ecosystem which covers Rungwa Game Reserve, Usanga Game Reserve and several other protected areas. The park is famous for its huge herds of elephant, and is also a bird watchers paradise with over 530 species.
The rare African Wild dog are also thriving here, mainly due to lack of human encroachment, and sable antelope can also be seen. Ruaha is fantastic for those wishing for utter exclusivity, and the feeling of having 12,950 sq km to yourself is unbeatable.Show Less
