AUTHENTIC SAFARIS & PERSONALIZED TOURS IN RUAHA WITH AFRICANMECCA
Your guide calls on his lifetime experience of the animals you want to see, augmented by insider information exchange on tracks and sightings by two-way radio with other like-minded guides.
On game-spotting vacation in Tanzania, this is the way to track down such wonders as the coursing packs of rare African wild dogs with garish black, white, and tan fur which enables them to melt into the shadows of sunny miombo woodland. Their weirdly prominent, large, erect round ears pick up every whisper of movement.
Painted dogs cover many miles in a hunt, communicating with bird-like yelps to coordinate their strategy. They bring down over 80% of their selected prey, compared with the lion’s success rate of only 30%. Prides of up to 24 lions snooze on the sandy Mwagusi River bed, and rangy cheetah mothers can be spotted with their hungry cubs around rocky kopjes on dry grassland as they wait to ambush a careless antelope.
Burnished sable and stocky roan antelopes, Defassa waterbuck and stiff-maned greater kudu with soft beards and magnificent spiral horns are among the rarities to be found. Some Ruaha camps conduct authentic Tanzanian walking safaris with armed guards and guides to teach you to distinguish tracks, wildlife carcass, estimate the age of dung by beetle activity and identify useful herbs.
You can also enjoy armchair safaris from the comfort of your verandah, lounge or bar, watching the varied wildlife that roams freely about the grounds, sand rivers and waterholes close by. Elegant zebras, stately giraffes, ponderous elephants, amusing warthogs and family orientated baboons all congregate fearlessly in sight.
A few camps in Ruaha offer fly-camping expeditions for the more adventurous. You can accompany a guide and park ranger to immerse yourself in exciting awareness of the immediacy of African safari life, carrying your lightweight tent through pristine wilderness like earlier explorers who had only the transport of their own two feet. Such close contact with the wonder of Ruaha cannot fail to charge your soul and change your perception of authentic travel in Africa, teaching you invaluable lessons about yourself and about the world around you.

Ruaha was everything we had hoped it would be. We couldn't imagine a trip there without visiting Ngorongoro Crater and a combination of Ruaha and Selous. Our thanks to the AfricanMecca team and Raza for a most exceptional trip!

AfricanMecca's professionalism and care understands that what distinguishes Africa is its authenticity, the land, people and wildlife who do not share our world of fashion and fanfare that distinguish so many travel companies today.

EAST AFRICA SAFARI BOOKING TRIP IDEA FOR RUAHA IN SOUTHERN TANZANIA
When visiting Ruaha National Park, we recommend combining it with offbeat parks in Southern and Western Tanzania such as Nyerere (Selous) or Katavi ending with a chimpanzee trekking safari at Gombe or Mahale.
You may optionally extend out to Northern Tanzania safari parks such as Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti (wildebeest migration). End your trip with a Swahili cultural tour and beach holiday in Zanzibar.
