Have you heard of Ruaha National Park?


Ruaha is dominated by the Great Ruaha River which takes its name from the Hehe tribe word 'Ruvaha', meaning River. The river flows through the Rift Valley on the eastern part of the National Park, creating spectacular gorges and slopes, and then joins the Rufiji River in the Selous Game Reserve. It is a vital source of water and generates hydro-electric power for much of the country.


The river, which has clearly shaped the park, has made Ruaha a National Park with extraordinary and breathtaking landscapes that are dominated by acacias and the iconic baobabs.
