• Activities


A visit to Ruaha can spoil you for future safaris anywhere else. In the dry seasons, you need not leave the camp to see good quantities of game, as they concentrate along the river to drink.


Many of the guides at Ruaha River Lodge have worked in the Park for years honing their knowledge of the Ruaha Park. Their self motivation is enhanced by annual training.

Game Drives

The keys to an outstanding game drive are experience, knowledge and a suitable vehicle. All game drives around the park are taken in open 4 wheel drive vehicles. These vehicles have been designed to ensure maximum visibility for all passengers. The game drives are led by a trained, experienced English speaking guide who will ensure that you get the most out of every safari you make. Balloon safaris are available in Ruaha during the dry season and can be prebooked or booked onsite.

Special Experiences

Private dinners on your veranda, bush breakfasts, or a sundowner on the banks of the river are all little ways in which we hope to make your safari with us a memorable one. Please ask if you would like us to organize something out of the ordinary. Fly camping in Ruaha is a great way to immerse yourself in the bush. Small tents set up in a private camp with your own host, guide and chef, fly camping is available for a minimum of 2 nights for 2 people and only in the dry season, but an exciting alternative to staying in the main Lodge.
