8. Jabali Ridge, Ruaha, Tanzania
Ask most people to name a park in Tanzania and you will hear Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara and maybe even Tarangire. All making up Tanzania’s famous “northern circuit”. Some may mention the Selous Game Reserve, but very few will even know of Ruaha. Amazing really, when you consider this is Tanzania’s largest National Park!
Ruaha in southern Tanzania is one of those great hidden treasures. A vast area with majestic baobas, swaying palms, great herds of elephants, and an estimated 10% of the entire world population of lions! That’s before we talk about the buffalos, leopards, cheetahs, giraffe, sable etc etc.
And now, a brand new addition to this incredible park, Jabali Ridge. The first true luxury lodge in Ruaha. There are just 8 suites and 1 private house, set high on a kopje overlooking Ruaha. Understated luxury, so nothing detracts from the wilderness around you, but not foregoing any comfort. Jabali Ridge, has ushered in a new era for this hidden gem called Ruaha!
And did we mention that infinity pool (picture top) high above the African savannah??
