Set high on a rocky kopje overlooking spiky palm trees and ancient baobabs in Ruaha National Park, Jabali Ridge offers sophisticated accommodations in an exclusive wildlife area.
Hidden among the rocky boulders, accommodations consist of eight luxury suites. Each suite is designed to draw attention to the beautiful landscape outside through large windows with louvered shutters that can opened completely for panoramic views or closed for an afternoon siesta. The king-sized beds are the perfect place to rest after an exciting day. The suites also include an en suite bathroom with hot water, rain showers, and flushing toilets. A private deck allows guest to unwind and enjoy unparalleled views of the rocky bush.
For groups, there is Jabali House. The private house comes with three en suite bedrooms, including two master suites with both an indoor and outdoor shower. An indoor and outdoor lounge plus a private plunge pool add to the relaxation. The house comes with a private chef, guide, and safari vehicle.
Set on and around a prominent kopje stretching from east to west, Jabali Ridge has stunning views all the way to the Mwagusi River. Because Ruaha National Park straddles a transition area between Eastern and Southern Africa, it has two distinct vegetation zones. It is also one of the largest wildlife conservation areas in Africa. A tenth of the world’s lions live here with prides of twenty or more being common. Herds of kudu, sable and roan antelope roam the park. Endangered wild dogs, bat-eared foxes, and cheetah hunt the savanna as well as the elusive leopard. Moreover, the park limits its numbers, so an area the size of New Jersey can be enjoyed with the competing crowds of other national parks.
