Ruaha National Park (10.300km²) is the most visited National Park in the southern part of Tanzania. Due to its size and the fact that the South of Tanzania is less visited than the northern parks, you still have ample of space and you will see hardly any safari vehicles. Ruaha National Park forms a border between Africa’s eastern and southern eco- system. Here you will find kudus, which you will find seldom further north and during the same time you can see grant gazelles which reach their southernmost breeding area.
