Ruaha National Park is the largest national park in Tanzania. The name of the park is derived from the Great Ruaha River, which flows along its southeastern margin and is the focus for game-viewing. The park can be reached by car on a dirt road from Iringa and there are two airstrips - Msembe airstrip at Msembe (park headquarters), and Jongomeru Airstrip, near the Jongomeru Ranger Post. The park is noted for its large population of elephants, with about 10,000 roaming the park.[citation needed] More than 571 species of birds have been identified in the park. Among the resident species are Hornbills, Kingfishers, and Sunbirds. Many migratory birds visit the park, e.g., the White Stork.
