3 Days Tanzania Safari to Ruaha National Park; Getting there.
Ruaha National Park is located in the Southern Safari Circuit of Tanzania but it is further towards Central Tanzania, and driving from Dar es Salaam to the park can be a herculean task. From Dar es Salaam or Zanzibar, the park is best reached by flight. There are a few aviation companies that fly into and out of Ruaha National Park so booking the 3 days Ruaha safari early is highly recommended. Getting flight availability on last minute, especially during the peak safari season, can be very tricky.
It is worth noting that the same safari package in Ruaha National Park can be combined with safari tours in the Northern Circuit, thanks to the new flight routes that have been introduced by a few companies. There are flights now that link Ruaha National Park with Northern Tanzania, through Arusha Domestic Airport and Seronera Airstrip, as well as other airstrips in the Serengeti.
