Ruaha is renowned for its predator sightings, especially the prides of Lions often seen around the Mwagusi area. Leopards and cheetah are often seen, and it is one of the few parks in East Africa where the endangered African Wild Dogs are often seen. Good sized herds of Buffalo and Elephants are found throughout Ruaha. The park has an interesting terrain which attracts animals more commonly found in southern Africa such as Sable and Roan Antelope and Greater and Lesser Kudu Antelope.
