Set on one of the most stunning stretches of the Great Ruaha River, you can see game throughout the day from the comfort of your veranda; there can surely be few other camps as perfectly situated.
A visit to Ruaha can spoil you for future safaris anywhere else. In the dry seasons, you need almost not leave the camp to see good quantities of game, as they concentrate along the river to drink.
The keys to an outstanding game drive are experience, knowledge and a suitable vehicle. All game drives around the park are taken in open 4 wheel drive vehicles. These vehicles have been designed to ensure maximum visibility for all passengers. All have 2 way radio in case of emergency. The game drives are led by a trained, experienced English speaking guide who will ensure that you get the most out of every safari you make.
Many of the guides at Ruaha River Lodge have worked in the Park for years honing their knowledge of the Ruaha Park. Their self motivation is enhanced by annual training.
Ruaha is split across two locations, with one dining banda along the river, and the other perched high on a nearby kopje, offering a completely different perspective.
Built out of local stone and thatch, the lodge is built around natural kopjes and capitalises on it's exceptional position on a bend in the river
Ruaha River lodge is the only ‘lodge’ in the Ruaha, consisting of 24 stone chalets stretching along the river bank.
Each chalet has stunning views from a large veranda out the front, while the huge interiors feature a sitting area, writing desk and either twin or double beds. At the rear of each chalet is a large bathroom decorated with found timber, a shower and double basins.
