Ruaha Valley

The Ruaha Valley is one of the most important elephant habitats in Africa and form part of a 20,226 km² protected area, the largest of its kind in Tanzania and in East Africa. Tanzania is home to the second largest elephant population in Africa after Botswana and big numbers of these elephant are based in and around the Ruaha Valley.

 

Our hunting blocks Waga, Kinyangesi and Lunda are situated on the Eastern boundary of the Great Ruaha River and are arguably the best elephant hunting areas in Tanzania today.

Except for some of the finest elephant hunting in Africa our hunting area in the Ruaha Valley also offers exceptional lion and leopard hunting. We offer exclusive tailor made safaris in Kinyangesi and Lunda for the discerning elephant hunter as well as the hunter seeking a specialised lion, leopard and plains-game safaris. We carefully take all factors in mind and select the best time of the season for your specific species to ensure the ultimate success in the Ruaha Valley. We do very limited hunting in these areas and reserve these blocks as our most exclusive safaris to offer.

The Ruaha Valley has the biggest hunt-able Elephant population in Tanzania, and the Lion, Leopard and Buffalo genetics are exceptional.

 

The area has been protected by Kilombero North Safaris for 10 years and we only started hunting it in 2022.

 

The area is very exclusive with very limited quota available for

great plains game, with both Lesser and Greater Kudu, Roan Sable, Eland and Harvey's Red Duiker

This area also shares a boundary with the Ruaha National Park.
