The Ruaha River area is the most stunning with Mdonya woodlands and the Mbage-Mwagusi circuit.Ngalambulwa Mountain is the tallest point in the park reaching a summit of 5,250 feet (1,600 m). Grasslands and rocky terrain surround this massif adding to the varying landscapes.The great Ruaha River travels along the southeastern border of the park.
