All game drives are driven by qualified guides in an open 4X4 landrover with a canopy for shade and no more than six guests per vehicle. Game drives are the best way to get up close and personal with the full variety of scenery, flora, fauna, and the different wildlife found in Ruaha. From the open plains to thick bush, from tranquil river scenes to great herds of buffaloes, Ruaha will always amaze and surprise guests. There is afternoon specialist bird and photography drives on offer- equipment and guides permitting.
There are daily bush walks through the Ruaha wilderness accompanied by an armed guide and a park ranger. Immerse yourself in nature and learn about the skill of tracking, survival, dung identification and the various mammals, insects and plants very often neglected from vehicles.
