Ruaha National Park | Safari in Iringa

GETTING TO RUAHA NATIONAL PARK

BY ROAD

Picture

 
Ruaha National Park is approximately 120km away from the nearest town Iringa along the ‘Neverending’ road (left). The road is well maintained and graded and takes around 2 hours. If you are driving from Dar es Salaam it is an 8 hour journey to Iringa from which there is a further 2 hour drive. There is no night driving in Ruaha so you must arrive at the park in time to drive to your accomodation. In general the roads in the park are well maintained but a 4-wheel drive is recommended.

BY AIR

Picture

 

To cover the 480km from Dar es Salaam would take about 2 1/2 hours. There are two airstrips that are used in the park. The main one is at Msembe beside the headquarters while there is another one at Jongomero, a 5 to 10 minute  flight away. The camps you are staying with would be able to provide or organise flight links in and out of the park aswell.

Safari Air Link runs the only scheduled flights between Katavi/Mahale to Ruaha, Selous, and Dar es Salaam/Zanzibar 
(Terminal 1 Julius Nyerere International Airport),
