The Rufiji River Delta connects the Great Ruaha River with the Rufiji River before emptying into the Indian Ocean. Home to a colourful array of water and bird life, the Rufiji offers sanctuary to enormous numbers of hippos and crocodiles, which bask and wallow on its muddy brown banks.
One of the last untouched gems of the nation's parks that offers the visitor a unique opportunity to see Africa the way the early explorers found it - pristine, alive with game, empty of tourists and utterly awe inspiring. Irrigated by the meandering network of lakes and tributaries that make up the mighty Rufiji River, it also offers the chance for one of the world's most unique boating safaris.
