The wild and wonderful Ruaha National Park is the largest of Tanzania’s national parks, but one of the least visited. Up until this point the camps available in the Ruaha have been relatively modest - until the arrival of Jabali Ridge.

Jabali Ridge is located upon a rocky kopje and offers just nine luxurious suites nestled between huge boulders ensuring plenty of privacy for guests.

The lodge has been constructed entirely from local, sustainable wood and makes the most of the natural features surrounding it; two towering baobabs provide an impressive entrance 'gate', an loop of boulders creates an amphitheatre housing the communal areas and the rim, just a short walk from camp, offers sweeping views of the baobab and spiky palm dotted landscape of Ruaha.

Guest suites have been designed to show off the landscape of Ruaha through the clever use of timber louvred shutters in place of walls, enabling guests to shut themselves away in complete solitude (and keep out the chill in cooler months), or open the shutters in their entirety to look out over Ruaha from the bed, desk or even bathroom.

Facilities which set Jabali Ridge apart from its Ruaha contemporaries are the infinity pool - perfect for a cooling dip when temperatures rise - small spa and in room wifi (though service will likely be a little patchy).

Game drives, night drives and walking safaris are all on offer at Jabali Ridge - an exciting prospect within Ruaha, which is home to one of the largest elephant populations in Africa, vast herds of buffalo and an impressive head count of lions, too.
