Ruaha National Park is Tanzania’s largest park at over 20,000 square kilometers in size. The park is well known for elephants, but also has some of the largest prides of lions around. At this time of year, the mighty river has been reduced to a creek with dry riverbeds strewn everywhere throughout the park.
Besides the lions, there were scores of amazing wildlife throughout the park, although much more spread out than in the Serengeti. We explored the park for a full 12 hours, the size and diversity of backgrounds is hard to fathom, it seems to go on forever.
