Located at the heart of Tanzania, Ruaha is the ‘other park’ on Tanzania’s Southern circuit. Ruaha’s relative inaccessibility means it gets far fewer tourists than the Selous and less than any comparable park in the Northern circuit.  The rewards of travelling this far are a wild landscape with baobab studded hills and rocky escarpments, with superb wildlife; Ruaha has reliably exciting predator concentrations, huge elephant and buffalo herds and a cross over of game from southern and Eastern Africa.

Ruaha has all the predators on show, with very good lion, leopard and cheetah as well as wild dog and hyena. Buffalo and elephant herds are found throughout the park but it is the park’s crazy combinations of species from east and southern Africa that excites wildlife and birdwatching enthusiasts.
Set on the banks of the seasonal Mwagusi River, Mwagusi Camp will be our base during a 6 night expedition into this wilderness region. The camp is smart and very comfortable, yet rustic in feel. It has been operating in Ruaha National Park for well over a decade and, as a result, the game drawn to the river and in the surrounding area is well habituated.
