Day 1 of 5 Day Udzungwa Mountains | Ruaha Park with Euro Uganda Safaris

Euro Uganda Safaris guide/driver will pick you from your accommodation in Dar es Salaam in the morning after breakfast. Then you will start a journey to the Udzungwa Mountains while having lunch on the way. The Udzungwa Mountains are part of the Eastern Arc Mountains which are found in Kenya and Tanzania and were formed some 200 million years ago. Today they hold a unique collection of flora and fauna and cover only 2% of Tanzania’s area but hold between 30-40% of the countries plant and mammal species. The most popular trail is to the magnificent Sanje waterfalls, a 5km circuit with spectacular views across the plains and three wonderful waterfalls. Accommodation at Camp Bastia in Mikumi.

Day 2
The morning after breakfast you will start a long journey to Ruaha National Park. When arriving in Iringa town you will stop for Lunch at Isimila Iringa. Then you will head to Ruaha National Park staying at Hill Top Hotel. The evening is the best time to enjoy the sunset at Ruaha.

Day 3
After breakfast, you will have a full day game viewing drive in the park. A fine network of game-viewing roads follows the Great Ruaha and its seasonal tributaries.
During the dry season, impala, waterbuck, and other antelopes risk their life for a sip of life-sustaining water and the risk is considerable, not only from the prides of 20-plus lions that lord over the savannah, but also from the cheetahs that stalk the open grassland and the leopards that lurk in tangled riverine thickets. This impressive array of large predators is boosted by both striped and spotted hyena, as well as several conspicuous packs of the highly endangered African wild dog.
Lunch at Ruaha River Lodge inside the park. After lunch, you will proceed with the evening game drive until evening where you will go back to the Hotel for the cover night.
