Jabali Ridge: Our View

Set high on a rocky kopje overlooking a landscape dotted with spiky palms and bulbous Baobabs, Jabali Ridge is a sophisticated base from which to explore Ruaha National Park. The remarkable beauty of Ruaha is not only in the landscape and its diversity of flora and fauna, or the impressive big game, but in the feeling of having the wilderness all to yourself. With only a handful of visitors at any one time in an area the size of New Jersey, this is an exceptional safari experience.

Jabali Ridge’s 8 suites are hidden amongst the rocky boulders that cocoon the property. An infinity pool, spa, and plenty of spaces to relax and ensure that your downtime is as memorable as time out in the bush. Expert guides lead walking safaris, daytime game drives as well as night drives.

Jabali Ridge: The Details

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. Jabali Ridge has been carefully designed to blend into its environment, making use of open spaces and natural materials. Even the existing granite boulders have been incorporated to provide privacy and shade. With just eight suites, the camp feels blissfully exclusive and remote. 

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.
