Ruaha River Lodge in the Ruaha National Park in Tanzania is very remote. This Tanzania game lodge in Ruaha is surrounded by dramatic topography of mountains, river and plains, its only rugged beauty is only outmatched by the variety and density of wildlife and exotic bird life. Ruaha River Lodge is the one game lodge in Tanzania where you can experience all the beauty of the Ruaha National Park.

Imagine that in the soft light of dawn, while the Tanzanian bush around you comes alive with birdsong, you enjoy a steaming mug of locally grown coffee, before setting off with an experienced ranger and a guide to interpret the fresh animal spoor and wonder at the flora and fauna at this national park in Tanzania.

As you tiptoe through Ruaha National Park in Tanzania, your senses are acutely attuned to the strong smells of the African wilderness and the close presence of game with amplified sounds of vegetation crunching underfoot. African wildlife like Lion or Wild Dog are crashing through the bush nearby and Impala are snorting in alarm.

Finally you come across a Hippo pool where under a shady tree a table is laid and your breakfast is being cooked over a log fire, an unforgettable way to start the day.' Game is drawn to the river from the neighbouring hills and guests can witness the great African wildlife dramas unfold from the comfort and protection of their self-contained natural stone and thatch 'Banda'. 

The best time for game viewing on your Ruaha safari is during the dry season from June until December when wildlife converges on the dwindling water resources. This is also the coolest time of year with temperatures starting to rise from September onwards.

The facilities at this Tanzania game lodge in Ruaha remain open and accessible all year since there is excellent infrastructure in Ruaha and the Highlands. During the rains from December until April, the tress erupts into a bursting torrent. Although the game viewing becomes more difficult the bird population swells with both northern and southern migratory species visiting Ruaha.
