Ruaha's unique position, at the centre of Tanzania, gives it an interesting cross section of birds, making it a fascinating park for the avid bird-watcher. Plenty of big game species occur in Ruaha, including elephant, large herds of buffalo, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, lion, leopard, especially good cheetah and even wild dog.
