Jabali Ridge is a stylish camp in the wildlife-rich Ruaha National Park, set on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Mwagusi River and Ikuka escarpment.
A landscape of sun-bleached plains, mighty baobabs and hardy shrubs, Ruaha is home to large numbers of lion, elephant, buffalo and even endangered African wild dogs. During the rainy season, visitors can hear the incredible thundering of the Ikuka waterfalls and even witness the Mwagusi beginning to flow after being dry for seven months.
The dry season is equally exciting, with opportunities to spot buffalo herds in the riverbed and elephants digging in the sand for water.
The eight raised suites at Jabali are expansive and airy with bird-nest thatched roofs and wooden shutters that slide to open up the rooms.
Beds are king sized and en-suite bathrooms have flushing toilets and rain showers. Out on the deck, guests can get comfy on one of the large cushioned benches and relax with a coffee or cold drink, admiring the golden plains and hundred-year-old baobabs.
Relax in the hammock on your wooden deck and unwind with a book. Cool off in the glorious infinity pool, which overlooks the vast plains, or head to our spa to smooth out any tensions with a hot-stone massage.
Everything at Jabali is homemade, from fresh breads and cakes to salads and ice creams. Take a prepared picnic breakfast to have during your game drive or enjoy a leisurely cooked brunch back at camp.
Lunch is a light meal in the dining area and in the evening we serve a delicious, gourmet three-course dinner under the stars.
The lodge also boasts a stunning infinity pool, spa and beautify viewing decks in which to sit and watch the wildlife just wonder past.
A typical day starts off with an early wake-up call and tea or coffee. Head off on your first game drive of the day after breakfast, or have it packed to take with you as a picnic.
Arrive back at camp in time to freshen up before sitting down to lunch. If you have a private vehicle, you can plan your day with your guide.
Mid-afternoon is time for a rest. Read a book, take a dip in the pool or visit the spa. Afterward, enjoy afternoon tea and then an evening game drive or walk with sundowners.
You could also accompany your guide on a bush walk into the park.
