Jabali Ridge

A stylish lodge in remote Ruaha

Safari in style in remote Ruaha

Jabali Ridge is located atop a rocky kopje, within the wildlife-rich Ruaha National Park. Surrounded by boulders, palms and baobab trees, the camp consists of eight suites and one private house.

Suites feature private balconies from which you can look out over the Mwagusi River, and louvered shutters can be opened up to really bring you close to your surroundings, or closed for privacy. En suite bathrooms are complete with flushing toilets and hot running water.

Enjoy delicious food cooked by the camp’s chefs, including homemade bread, cakes, biscuits and ice cream. Breakfast can be enjoyed out on your game drive or back at camp, then lunch is enjoyed in the mess tent while dinner is a three-course affair served under the stars.

When you’re not out spotting wildlife – the area is home to large numbers of lion, leopard, cheetah and elepahnt – you can take a dip in the infinity pool, enjoy a refreshing drink on your private deck or relax with a book in the lounge.

Places to combine Jabali Ridge with

Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro Crater Lodge
Perched up high on the edge of this remarkable natural wonder, the Ngorongoro Crater Lodge holds a prime position. With views spanning the spectacular caldera, you can enjoy a relaxing visit to this otherwise bustling attraction and dip into a world that’s the permanent home to roughly 25,000 animals. The huge amounts of game that find sanctuary here roam over 20 kilometres on the crater floor and this allows for some excellent game viewing opportunities. Prides of bachelor lions are sometimes seen spanning the landscape, on the hunt for their own families and, dotted among the plains game, you might be lucky enough to spot a rhino in the distance. Morning and afternoon game drives are taken by highly experienced guides with visits to the nearby Olduvai Gorge available when vehicle occupancy allows. The crater itself can get quite busy but there’s a peaceful quiet that flows through the rooms, social areas and outside spaces of the lodge. North and South Camp both have twelve beautiful suites and the Tree Camp, slightly set apart from the others, has just six. Raised up on stilts, these rooms are all tastefully decorated with Tanzanian hardwoods and silk curtains which make the rooms cosy and warm; the ridge can get quite nippy, after all. The dining areas have viewing decks and comfortable indoor lounges which are ideal for catching up on some midday afternoon reading, or ticking off the birds that you might have seen so far. You could also decide to have a relaxing massage in your room, and completely pamper yourself.
