Ruaha Safari Tanzania

A Ruaha safari takes you around one of Tanzania’s best kept wildlife secrets.  The country’s biggest elephant sanctuary and the Great Ruaha River is creating spectacular gorges. The remaining water falls along the Great Ruaha River are important habitat for hippopotamus, fish and crocodiles. Yes, I would like to know more about Ruaha and get my personal itinerary.
