Inspired by the landscape which surrounds it, Jabali blends almost seamlessly with its environment. With minimal use of solid walls, the main areas are predominantly open with natural granite boulders providing privacy and shade – even when relaxing in camp you are still one with nature. An infinity pool is the perfect place to cool off on a hot afternoon and the spa will rejuvenate even the most tired limbs.
Our chefs pride themselves on ensuring that everything served in Jabali is homemade, from our fresh breads, cakes, biscuits to fresh fruit salads, sorbets and homemade ice creams. You can choose a ‘bush bonnet’ picnic breakfast to enjoy during your morning game drive, or go for a cooked brunch back in camp. Our light, buffet-style lunches served in the mess tent are popular in the heat of the day, and include plenty of salads with your main course. Delicious gourmet-style dinners are a three-course affair served outdoors under the stars.
Please let us know if you have special dietary requirements – our camp chefs will be happy to cater for your needs as far as possible.
As well as Ruaha’s abundant wildlife, close to camp you will enjoy sightings of :
- Lesser kudu
- Greater kudu
- Sable antelope (rare)
- Roan antelope (rare)
The very best time for rewarding game viewing is in the cooler early mornings and late afternoons, when the animals are at their most active. Depending on the season, your day may start slightly earlier or later, but the general pace of life in camp is focused on giving you the very best possible game-viewing experience. If you have booked a private game-viewing vehicle do discuss personal schedule preferences with your guide.

FAMILY SUITABILITY LEVEL
Families with children aged five and older are welcomed at Jabali. Exceptions to the age limit can be made depending on camp occupancy – please chat to us. We do not, however, offer specific activities for children or personal guides. Note that children below 12 should always share a tent with an adult.
We love catering for the individual needs of families, however safety is always our top priority and the wilderness environment here is not conducive to providing a specific outdoor activity programme for children.
Families of six or more are guaranteed a private safari vehicle at no extra cost in low season. In high season, families with children under 12 are obliged to use a private game-viewing vehicle at an additional cost.
