is equipped with a two-way radio.
-Game drives are led by an experienced guide
with a driver.
-Refreshments are served on longer excursions
and a packed lunch can be taken on a full

a full mornings drive returning to the Lodge
for lunch and an afternoon siesta, followed
by a shorter evening drive starting at 4pm.
A full days drive can also be taken.
-The guides, trained and led by Peter Fox,
your host at Ruaha River Lodge, are all locally
born and bred with an instinctive knowledge
of the bush.
-The roads in the park are all weather roads
and remain open all year round.
-There is no off road driving or night driving
allowed in Ruaha National Park.
