Ruaha National Park shapes the core of a wild broadened ecosystem covering around 40,000 sq km and gives a home to Tanzania’s largest elephant population, estimated at 12,000. Also, Tanzania’s largest national park hosts buffaloes, greater and lesser kudus, Grant’s gazelles, wild dogs, ostriches, cheetahs, roan and sable antelope, and in excess of 400 kinds of birds.

Ruaha is remarkable for its wild and striking topography, particularly around the Great Ruaha River, which is its heart, and which is home to crocodiles, hippos and wading birds. Quite a bit of it is undulating plateau averaging about 900m in height with occasional rough outcrops and stands of baobabs.Mountains in the south and west reach to about 1600m and 1900m separately. Running through the park are several ‘sand’ rivers, the vast majority of which dry up during the dry season when they are utilized by wildlife as passages to achieve areas where water remains.
