Jabali Ridge - Ruaha National Park
Jabali Ridge is built in the Kopjes rock overlooking the wonders of the remote Ruaha National Park. Exclusive and luxurious, this lodge has only 8 suites. With striking architecture and a remarkable infinity pool, this unique lodge is certainly one of the most sophisticated properties in this vast isolated region of Tanzania. Owned and run by the established and reputable safari company, Asilia, Jabali Ridge has very high standards of hosting, food and service.
The main area, an open plan structure is built high up in rocks allowing unrivalled views of the baobab dotted bush below and is split into a bar and lounge area with a separate dining area. The decor is modern and stylish but the heavy use of wood allows it’s to retain a rustic minimalistic feel and blend seamlessly with its surroundings. The infinity pool is a stunning stone structure complimented by wood decking offering spectacular views of the bush below. There is a small spa close to the swimming pool to ensure complete relaxation at this remote bush retreat.
The 8 suites at Jabali are furnished with natural materials comprising of wood and stone throughout. They have a contemporary feel but retain a minimalistic charm, in keeping with the communal areas, all decorated in neutral colours. They are open sided but have wooden shutters which can be closed for privacy or shade purposes. Each suite has a wooden veranda outside it with a covered lounge area, and all are equipped with an en-suite bathroom with rain showers and flush toilets.
There is a 3 bedroom ‘Jabali Private House’ in addition to the standard accommodation, with its own pool, private chef and guide for groups and families seeking the height of luxury and exclusivity.
