I can’t describe because our son was in touch with the tour operator
I can only write about our two amazing guides- Paul and Issa. All the communication was done by our son. But the tour itself was very well planned. Paul and Issa became our dear friends who succeeded to make our trip - the best experience ever ! We really hope we’ll come back one day and will FOR SURE choose only Paul an Issa again. We highly appreciate their wonderful job! Thank you!
Meet dik-dik, playing lions, hippo and grieving mother elephant - meet Ruaha
Many companies offer safari tours, companies with skills and
lots of experience.
Kitonga Tours & Safaris in Ruaha National Park offers both, but first of all a warm and friendly attitude, and deep respect and love for all animals and the nature around them.
Ruaha is a lovely place, a huge, beautiful, wildlife-rich national park.
We drove in on Christmas Eve, met immediately four playing and proud lions, a grieving mother elephant - just lost her baby - and the tallest and sweetest giraffe
Our guides Given and Alex were outstanding. Steady, calm, informing and dedicated, with lots of humor.
Our four days and three nights in wild Ruaha will remain a solid milestone in our lives. The tripping hippos. Sleeping crocodile. And hungry leopard. And the sweet ranger following us to the bandas at night with a kalashnikov in her fist. We could meet an eating hippo around, dining after dark. Or just a lion.
Warm and kind regards to Given, Alex, Paul and Salom at Kitongas.

Fantastic Day Trip!
I had a fantastic safari in Ruaha National Park with Kitonga Tours! I saw so much in my one day trip leaving from Iringa – elephants, giraffes, zebras, crocodiles, ostriches and even several lions up close. Our guide and driver did a fantastic job in leading the trip and showing us the best spots, and Paul from the office was also very helpful in finding a group that I could join as a solo traveller. Highly recommended!
Thank you Kitonga Tours for a fantastic safari trip delivered without flaws!
I am writing a review as we found that organizing a safari in Tanzania without going through an agent has been very complex.
Costs are very high and how to know if the company you are hiring is any good for the price?
We are a French/Danish family with two children (11 and 15 years) that went to game drive in the beautiful, large and less crowded Ruaha national park with a total of 5 nights of which 3 nights were spent inside the park in August 2022 (we stayed the 2 other nights in transit in Iringa).
We chose to travel by jeep from Dar Es Salaam to the Ruaha park and even though it is a long journey of approx. 12 hours to Iringa, we were very happy to have done it as it gave us a great possibility to see and enjoy The Tanzanian countryside.
All the details of the 6 days (5 nights) trip package were coordinated via email/sms with Paul (our guide) and everything was delivered without flaw. We met Gerald the owner of the company in Iringa, a very simpatic and smiley man before driving further via a long and bumpy dirt road to the Ruaha park entrance.
Paul (guide) and Isa (our driver and guide) were both with us the entire trip and did everything they could to accommodate our wishes and always arrived on time when we were to be picked up in the morning.
Isa was an excellent driver on road (feeling very safe including when we drove from Dar Es Salaam to Ruaha) and off road before and in the park (agile and comfortable)
Their safari jeep was in excellent condition and very comfortable to sit in and with a small refrigerator to keep the water bottles cool. We felt safe at all times.
Isa and Paul were very helpful in spotting animals - we saw all the big five (among others) except the Rhino that does not live in the park.
We ended the tour having a great and relaxed relationship with them. Both are really nice and sympathetic people.
The Ruaha park is a gem offering a large variety of colourful landscape and vegetation ( rivers, flat and dry terrain, hills , rocky area, with many plant species including many Baobab trees in certain areas, and combining dry and green areas in August ). We really appreciated there were extremely few jeeps inside the Ruaha park, so we could get an authentic feeling of being on a safari, and it was possible to drive for long distances and many hours without meeting another jeep. Be aware however that in this park you will not see dense packs of animals like buffalos, zebras, antelopes like you can see in the Serengeti park. You will find more sparced and smaller groups of animals within a larger park.
We can highly recommend a tour organised with Kitonga Tours. Kitonga Tours will also be highly capable to organise safari tours to all other national parks in Tanzania.
Fantastic safari with KITONGA TOURS.
Fantastic Safari! We visited Ruaha National Park with our amazing driver and guide Mr Paul. His knowledge was super and he looked after us very well. We saw hundreds of animals and the geographical features as well. The Bandas we stayed at were so beautiful and we saw different kind of animals like girrafes and elephants path near with our Bandas and all the staff everywhere were so welcoming. I would thoroughly recommend KITONGA TOURS and our wonderful driver Mr Paul.
