Ruaha National Park Revisited Part 2


This safari video was taken in Ruaha National Park in late June about six weeks after the end of the rains. The red 'X' on the map of Ruaha shows the approximate position of Kwihala camp.

Game viewing was superb because more and more animals were heading to the Park from the Miombo as it dried out. The Great Ruaha River was in superb shape, flowing from bank to bank. This video includes some excellent footage of a big male lion calling to his pride, and also a couple of nice shots of a lucky encounter with a leopard one morning near to our camp.

The grey lines on the Map indicate the position of mountainous areas which capture the incoming rainfall from the East, and cause Ruaha to have much lower rainfall than Selous.
