4 Day Fly In Ruaha Park Safari
Day 1: Domestic flight to Ruaha national park
Today you fly from Dar es Salaam or Arusha to Ruaha national park. This national wild ecosystem hosts ostrich, cheetah, kudu, and sable antelope.
With 530 different species of birds it is an excellent park for birding enthusiasts as well, with numerous migrant and endemic species present.
The coming nights you will spend at Kilimatonge Camp. The Ruaha Kilimatonge Camp is at the foot of the Kilimatonge Hill. Overlooking a sandy river bed, leopard are often spotted on the rock opposite camp, and elephant are frequent visitors to dig for water. Located in an area of Ruaha central to the major wildlife congregations, you lose no time in the morning to get to a fresh kill or to see predators hunting.
Combine game drives with walking safaris from your private mobile safari camp, returning each evening for sun downers and a hearty bush dinner.
Day 2: Full day game drives in Ruaha national park
Many call Ruaha “the best kept secret in Tanzania” because of its huge size, remote location, and extensive array of wildlife. The lifeline of this park is the great Ruaha River which attracts a lot of species, especially in the dry season. Today’s drive will take you into Ruaha for a full day safari experience.
You arrive back at the accommodation at the end of the afternoon.
Day 3: Game drive and walking safari
Once again you will wake up early for a full day safari in this wonderful national park. You can take a packed lunch with you to have a picnic lunch somewhere in the park.
In the afternoon you will go for an exciting walking safari which will bring you up close with Antilopes and even Elephants! An armed Ranger is there to protect you and tell you more about the different trails of animals you will find along the way.
Day 4: Domestic flight back to Dar es Salaam
After an early breakfast you will head out for your last game drive en-route to the airstrip. This is your last chance to spot some animals on the way!
Then it is time to say goodbye to the staff of the camp and the amazing experiences you had in Ruaha national park. You will fly with the morning flight of Coastal aviation back to Dar es Salaam airport.
The transfer from the airport to Dar es Salaam is not included. Please let us know if you wish us to include one (or more) nights in Dar es Salaam and also note that this safari can start and end from Arusha.
