Jabali Ridge is a sophisticated and luxurious lodge with a strategic location in Tanzania's Ruaha National Park. Set amongst giant granite boulders at the crest of a kopje, the lodge has sweeping views of Ruaha's baobab studded savanna, and easy access to the Park's wildlife hotspots.
Ruaha is one of East Africa's hidden gems - remote and virtually inaccessible by road, this huge Park is home to 10% of Africa's lion population as well as disproportionately large numbers of elephant, leopard, and buffalo. Jabali's location in the central, savanna section of the Park provides easy access to the Mwagusi and Ruaha Rivers, magnets for wildlife in an otherwise very dry landscape.
Jabali is a place of relaxation and rejuvenation but it is, first and foremost, a world class safari destination. Game drives and night drives in search of Ruaha's exciting wildlife are conducted by highly-skilled professional guides in specially adapted, open safari vehicles. In contrast to most Tanzanian Parks, walking safaris are permitted in Ruaha, and guests at Jabali have the opportunity to track "big game" on foot, accompanied by an experienced guide and armed Park ranger.
Built almost entirely of local, sustainable wood, and set amongst granite boulders, bulbous baobab and spiky palm trees, Jabali Ridge blends seamlessly into the surrounding landscape. The main areas of camp comprise an open plan, with granite boulders forming natural partitions. There is a dining and sitting area set beneath large trees, which provide shade in the heat of the afternoon. The rim-flow infinity pool and bar offer spectacular views of the park below and quiet spaces, such as the extensive library and spa, are the perfect places to unwind after an adventure-filled day.
The sophisticated and elegant design of each guest room celebrates the natural environment – with studded wooden doors, a platform bed made of hewn timbers, a soft color scheme and louvered shutters blurring the demarcation between indoor and outdoor. Each room features a private outdoor sitting area and generous en-suite bathroom with a rain shower. With its minimal use of solid walls, views over Ruaha are enjoyed from virtually every point in the room.
Jabali Ridge offers an intoxicating blend of beauty, relaxation, and adventure - the magnificent setting and elegant lodge are perfectly complemented by the wildness and wildlife of Ruaha, and the excitement of walking safaris. Whether combined with the Selous or the Serengeti, Jabali Ridge can hold its own with the best safari experiences that Tanzania has to offer.For more information about Jabali Ridge call toll-free: 888.227.8311
