RUAHA NATIONAL PARK
Ruaha National Park is the second largest National Park in Tanzania which covers an area of 20,226square kilometers. The park is located in south-central Tanzania and this is one of the country’s most outstanding wilderness areas. Being an outstanding area, the park’s relative inaccessibility means it gets far and this fact has caused the park to experience fewer tourists than the Selous and less than any comparable park in the southern circuit. It is during the dry season, when game viewing is at its best, animals are drawn to the Great Ruaha River and other water sources for drinking water and cooling their bodies. The name Ruaha was derived from the hehe word called ”Luhava” meaning the great river
The advantage of travelling far in the park is to experience a wild landscape with baobab studded hills and rocky escarpments with a pretty number of wild animals. Ruaha National Park has reliably exciting predator concentrations and is regarded as the home of more than 10% of the world’s lion population. The park contains as well one of four cheetah populations in East Africa and is the third prime wild dog population in the world. Mentioned last wild animals live by being accompanied by huge elephant and buffalo herds. The park has a wild and authentic environment that remains relatively untouched.
