Ruaha National Park
Jabali Ridge has been carefully situated in amongst some rocky outcrops in the Northern area of Ruaha National Park. This area in particular is one of the best places for game viewing. During the dry seasons large numbers of wildlife congregate here in search of water. Ruaha is also well know for the high number of lion prides with sightings of large elephant herds a daily occurrence.
Game drives at Jabali Ridge are exhilarating, large prides of lions, elephant in abundance as well as several resident leopard that are quite relaxed around the game viewing vehicles. In the early evening its not uncommon to see lions begin their hunts and stalking herds of buffalo that watch their every move.
Jabali Ridge has eight guest suites that are placed amongst the boulders of this rocky area and have a uniquely contemporary design. Each suite is open at each side to allow for excellent views of the surrounding bush. King size beds adorn each room with simple yet rustic furniture. A private deck has been built at the front of each suite for relaxing and game watching. The en suite bathrooms are spacious with beautiful finishes.
During the hotter seasons there is an infinity swimming pool to cool off and from the rim there are stunning views all the way to the horizon. A small spa is available offering a range of treatments.

Ruaha National Park is just West of Selous Game Reserve and the Swahili coast. This makes a “bush and beach” safari to Africa an ideal choice for a honeymoon or family holiday. Consider combining this with Matemwe Lodge or Fanjove Island.
