Ruaha River Lodge, situated in the remote Ruaha National Park, occupies a unique and privileged position set around a series of rocky kopjes in a bend of the great Ruaha River, blending seamlessly into its surroundings and affording views up and down the river. Game is drawn to the river from the neighboring hills and with resident hippos and crocs there is always plenty of action to watch.
Covering nearly 13,000 sq km, the Ruaha National Park is renowned for its undisturbed wildlife and stunning, rugged scenery.
Game driving is the predominant activity in the Ruaha National Park. The Park has a vast network of all weather roads, so large tracts of the park are accessible to visitors. Not only does this increase the chance of seeing more animals, it also disperses the vehicles more evenly around the park so that you will not meet many other vehicles.
Your highly trained guide will lead you to an abundance of sightings, including leopard, lion, cheetah and hunting dog, not to mention several rare species including greater and lesser kudu, roan and sable antelopes.
The 20 riverside en-suite 'bandas' are designed to blend seamlessly into the surroundings. The local stone and thatch rooms have minimal impact on the environment and game viewing from your veranda is a relaxing and enthralling option.
The lodge has 2 separate dining and bar areas servicing 10 rooms each, thus maintaining a personalized small camp atmosphere in each.
Drinks around a campfire on the river bank or high up in the elevated bar with its spectacular views up and down the river is the perfect way to end the day.
All meals; Park fees; a laundry service; tea/coffee; and shared safari activities in open 4WD vehicles are included.
Children of any age are welcome. Rates available on request.
All of the holidays we prepare are tailor-made, but this might give you an idea of how Ruaha River Lodge can be included in you own dream holiday.
