Ruma National Park

Unknown animal treasures and undisturbed serenity

Home » Destinations » National Parks » Ruma National Park
Ruma National Park is famous for being home to Kenya’s last remaining roan antelope sanctuary. The park is located on the flat floor of the seasonally wet Lambwe River Valley, which is bounded to the south by the Kanyamwa Escarpment and to the north by the volcanic plugs of the Ruri Hills. Ruma has a diverse bird population. The park is also home to Kenya’s only protected region where the globally endangered blue swallow, a rare intra-African migrant, can be seen on a regular basis. Blue swallows, which require damp grassland for both feeding and roosting, arrive in Kenya in April from their breeding sites in Southern Tanzania and leave in September.
