Ruaha National Park: Top 10 Things To Do

By Asilia Africa News | 02 August 2018

Hidden away in the beautiful rocky landscape of Ruaha National Park, is a hidden gem – Jabali Ridge.

Jabali’s design is something dreams are made of and you’ll find yourself being mesmerised by each and every room or area. Jabali Ridge has just eight private and exclusive suites, with an additional option of Jabali Private House available for small groups or families.  Cocooned between boulders, boasting a picturesque infinity pool, as well as lots of nooks and crannies to relax and unwind in – you’ll have plenty of opportunities to make your time at Jabali memorable, and that’s before you’ve even headed out into the bush on a game drive!

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.

Take A Dip In The Infinity Pool

The most spectacular views from the Jabali Ridge infinity pool in Ruaha.

Set high on a rocky kopje overlooking a landscape dotted with spiky palms and bulbous baobabs, you’ll be able to take in the whole landscape as well as the animals that frequent the area in front of the camp.

Head Out On A Walking Safari

There is truly no better way to experience the bush than on foot.

If you’re keen on gaining a deeper understanding of the area, take part in a walking safariwith one of Jabali’s experienced armed guides and local trackers. Eye-to-eye with the wildlife, your senses are heightened and the sights, sounds and smells of the bush come alive.

Chill Out In Style

Dozing off while the warm Ruaha breeze rocks you to sleep.

After a morning game drive, dining on a delicious breakfast and lunch – there is nothing better than an afternoon nap. One thing that could possibly make it that much better is the fact that you can enjoy your nap time in the comfort of your room hammock.

Drinks Out In The Bush

After a game drive, the best place to stop for a couple of drinks or sundowners is right where you are – in the bush. Your guide will set up some of your favorite drinks and snacks to enjoy whilst chatting about the day’s sights and experiences.

Wildlife Encounters

Get closer and experience more with our guides.

Game viewing in Ruaha National Park is unrivalled and the scope of wildlife extraordinary, with 80 animal species and 10% of the world’s lion population calling the plains home.

The density of lions in the park is not only extremely high but prides are unusually large – it is not uncommon to see numbers of 20 or more. Almost 100 of the elusive African wild dog are to be found here, and black-backed jackal and hyena both have strong populations. Also common are buffalo, zebra, giraffe, Greater and Lesser kudu, Lichtenstein’s hartebeest, waterbuck, bushbuck and impala and of course, the 580 recorded species of birdlife. In the height of dry season, see elephants obtain water from dry sand rivers using their front feet and trunks.

Showers With A View

After a day out in your game drive vehicle, you'll look forward to a long, hot shower. Showering at Jabali Ridge is made that little bit more special by allowing you to be one with nature and shower whilst looking out onto the scenery of Ruaha.

Wild Nights – Night Game Drives

The nocturnal species may be shy, but their curiosity is legendary as is evidenced by our night cam footage.

When the sun descends, the elusive night animals come out to play. Explore the secrets of these shy creatures on a night game drive through Ruaha National Park.

Bush Lunches in Ruaha

The perfect spot to enjoy lunch out in the Ruaha National Park.

If you’re keen on spending more time out in the bush, we can arrange for you to enjoy your lunch out in the open lands of Ruaha. Munching on lunch and sipping on a few drinks while the animals of the area go about their usual business and “Bush TV” takes over!
