Born of the savannah, the bush and the river, our 4 x 4 Jeeps are as much at home on the plains of Africa as a herd of buffalo or a pride of lions. And just as tough, nimble and, fast. No other safari vehicle can keep up with a 4 x 4, with its all-wheel drive and high suspension skimming over the terrain.
The pop-up top ensures you a front-row seat to that oncoming herd of elephants or a leopard bearing down on its prey. And piloting your 4 x 4 over Tanzania’s magnificent landscape is your personal safari driver/guide included in this Natural Worlds’ hire package.
Safe, secure, and practically unstoppable, our Land Cruiser Jeeps and your expert guide will deliver you right into the heart of the safari experience.
How to get to Iringa
Safaris to Ruaha usually start from Dar es Salaam, and your point of entry for the country will be Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR). In most cases, your tour operator will pick you up from the airport and handle all further transportation.
The drive to Iringa from Dar es Salaam takes about 10 hours, and a lot of it is on a dusty, bumpy road. Many people traveling to Iringa / Ruaha make a stopover at Mikumi NP. From Mikumi, the distance to Ruaha is about 320km/200mi, and the drive takes roughly five hours.
The easier way to get to Iringa is by chartered or scheduled flight from Dar es Salaam to the park’s airstrip. There are also flights connecting all parks of the southern circuit safari.
