Ruaha National Park

Ruaha features a landscape of rolling plains and gentle hills framed by savanna woodlands, crossed by the dramatic Great Rift Valley. In this, the largest national park in Tanzania (just over 5,000 square kilometers), more antelope species are found than in any other wildlife preserve in Africa. Due to its huge extent and remote location, it is the least visited of Tanzania’s national parks. Visitors to this park can see herds of buffalo and elephants as well as lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dog, and hyenas without encountering many other human visitors. As the rivers and springs begin to dry up during the May to October dry season, wildlife is concentrated around just a few rivers and water holes, making for dramatic viewing.  From December to May, bird-watching is excellent.

Mikumi National Park

The grassy plains of the Mikumi National Park are surrounded by mountains which concentrate the wildlife in the large bowl that is formed in their midst. Herds of elephants and pride of lions are common here as well as zebra, wildebeest, buffalo and impala. The 400 identified species that comprise the rich resident birdlife is enhanced by the number of migrants that fly through Mikumi as they escape from severe weather in their Eurasian homes. The eland, the largest of the antelopes and the rare Sable Antelope are found within the 3,230 square kilometers of Mikumi National Park. Mikumi is only 200 kilometers from Dar es Salaam.
