Luxury Holidays At Jabali Ridge

Jabali Ridge is a wonderful base for exploring the vast wilderness of Ruaha National Park, boasting an enviable position amongst the park's iconic granite boulders. With views stretching as far as the Mguwasi River, Jabali is surrounded by mesmerising nature. Built from natural materials, the lodge blends seamlessly into the environment, offering incredible vistas from its eight guest suites. Meanwhile, the central areas are predominantly open-sided, with granite boulders forming natural boundaries rather than solid walls. Look out for wildlife from the impressive infinity swimming pool or rejuvenate your body with a luxurious spa treatment. Of course, the crowning glory of any trip to Jabali is its incredible surroundings and safaris. Morning and afternoon game drives are conducted in open-sided vehicles, from which you can spot an array of incredible species, while walking safaris and night drives can also be arranged.

The chefs at Jabali Ridge pride themselves on their home-cooked food. Breads and pastries are made daily for breakfast, which you can enjoy as a picnic on safari or as part of a brunch feast when you return from your wildlife spotting adventure. In the evening, three-course meals are served under the stars.

Hotel Experiences

Night game drives
A night game drive is a thrilling way to go in search of Ruaha’s nocturnal creatures. This is the time when most of the big cats are also at their most active, as they search for prey in the cover of darkness. It is exhilarating to watch them move stealthily through the undergrowth while, above you, thousands of stars are scattered across the velvet black sky.
Walking safaris
Your senses will come alive as you explore the bush on foot. Accompanied by Jabali Ridge’s experienced armed guides and trackers, they will lead you on a walking safari, exploring Ruaha’s eco-systems and the creatures within it.
