After enjoying breakfast overlooking the Great Ruaha River, we will set out on a full day game drive in this huge park. Ruaha National Park is the largest park in Tanzania, spanning some 20, 226 square kilometres. It is named after the Great Ruaha River that runs through it and is a focus point for game viewing.
Previously Ruaha National Park was a haven for elephants, however tragically numbers have plummeted in recent years due to illegal poaching, with some reports stating numbers have dropped from 20,000 to 8,200. However, you will still see these majestic creatures, along with cheetahs, leopards, lions, giraffes and more.
We will share a picnic lunch during the day before leaving the park in the late afternoon.
