How can it be? Despite the monumental rains we had this year, and now the subsequent high water table we see everywhere, the river has only managed to sustain a small flow as far as the Ibuguziwa bridge!
It can only point to the fact that a MASSIVE amount of water is being taken off upstream for growing rice and small crops!
Sadly this will be my last Ruaha River update. As we are no longer located in RNP it will become impossible for me to keep up to date. However, I will continue to maintain this site and add updates where possible on various topics relating to RNP.
I will be very happy to answer any questions or queries regarding this recorded period
