Ruaha remains the safari frontier, despite being Tanzania’s largest National Park, and supporting one of the most spectacular concentrations of wildlife. There is a beautifully diverse landscape that ranges from baobab forests, granite kopjes, and open plains to rivers and dry river beds that serve as magnets for wildlife activity. Ruaha retains a remote unexplored feel, and is arguably the best secret in the safari world. Ruaha houses a tenth of the world lion population – known for large prides of twenty strong or more—that dramatically hunt buffalo and giraffe. Elephant herds occur in greater concentration than anywhere in Tanzania. The park is amazing for leopards that can be dwarfed by giant baobab trees. This is where East and Southern Africa meet, leading to an incredible amount of biodiversity.
Near its sister camp, Kwihala Camp, Jabali Ridge sits in arguably the most productive area for wildlife viewing near the Mwagusi River. Utilizing the same architect who designed Asilia’s Highlands Camp, Caine Willians Wynn has artfully created Jabali Ridge to blend with nature, optimize on the stunning views over the Mwagusi River, yet stand on its own as a stunning, sophisticated structure.
- The camp features ten luxurious suites nestled amongst the boulders and boasting a premium view overlooking a vast landscape down to the Mwagusi Sand River in the distance. Suites are equipped with louvered shutters, king size beds, private decks, rain showers, and flushing toilets. Guests also have access to a plunge swimming pool and spa.
