Kitulo National Park & Ruaha National Park

Kitulo Plateau is a gentle place where wildflowers, birds, and some antelope and zebra are the main attractions. In 2005 a new species of monkey was discovered in the forests on the western side of the Park. It is a type of Mangabey now named Kipunji.  Endemic species of butterfly, chameleon, lizard, and frog further enhance the biological wealth of God’s Garden.  

Ruaha National Park – where Rivers, mountains, plains, rock kopje, swamps, dense woodlands, open savannas spread out across an immense landscape that has barely been touched by man. 

Wooded hillsides, many with rounded granite outcrops and scatterings of huge baobabs, are dissected by sandy, rock-strewn seasonal rivers and streams running down to meet flood plains and seasonal swamps, many of which end up in the Great Ruaha River

Tour Overview:

Kitulo National park & Ruaha National Park  – 5 days / 4 nights

The Best Combination of Southern Circuit National Parks! 

From Kitulo we walk safaris through the grasslands, watching birds and enjoying wild flowers. Those wishing to hike can go hill walking to different waterfalls in the Park including one that is 100 meters high giving spectacular views of Lake Nyasa and its beautiful Matema Beach below the mountains.

 

Ruaha National Park is home to hippos and crocodiles snacking on the school of fish, it is a flooded terrain after the rain dwindling to precious pools surrounded by blinding sweep of gazelles risks their lives for a sip of its waters…a permanent hunting grounds for lions, Leopards, hunting dogs, hyenas, and Jackals; lack enough you can also have the chance to see both lessor and greater kudus, Sable, and Roan antelopes here. 

Ruaha is the only protected area in the world where the flora and fauna of eastern and southern Africa overlaps.
