GUIDE ON RUAHA RIVER LODGE IN TANZANIA
Ruaha River Lodge occupies a prime site for an active-adventure safari vacations in Africa, beside the Great Ruaha River with stunning views over the rock-tumbled river bed and surrounding miombo woodland as well as rocky tors and the distant Ruaha Escarpment. It is owned by the Fox family who are dedicated to the conservation of Ruaha and eager to share their knowledge and love of the area. If you must choose only one off-beat park to visit on your AfricanMecca tour in Tanzania, the little known Ruaha National Park but the largest in Tanzania offers spectacular, constantly changing scenery and a tremendous concentration of diverse flora and fauna including over 14,000 plant species. It is a bird-watchers’ dream with over 570 avian species and a photographer’s delight with large concentrations of elephant and buffalo, hippo and crocodile, with prides of lions and packs of endangered African painted dogs. In an area slightly larger than Slovenia or Wales, much of which is accessible only with exertion, and therefore largely unspoiled; you will also find such rarities as goat-like Roan and glossy Sable antelope as well as the amazing spiral-horned Greater kudu. From Dar es Salaam, a two hour flight brings you to the nearest airstrip where you will be met and taken on an eye-opening trip through Ruaha to the lodge. En-route, the diverse landscape holds troops of baboons, extended elephant families, solitary giraffes, herds of buffalo, groups of zebra, roaring lions, wild pigs with tails down and cute warthogs running with tails erect like aerial pennants.
