The 21,000km2 Ruaha National Park is home to one of the largest populations of elephant in Tanzania, vast herds of buffalo, and super prides of lion. Perched on a rocky outcrop in one of the best locations the park has to offer, Jabali Ridge is a sophisticated retreat with spectacular views of riverbeds studded with spiky palms and baobabs. Jabali Ridge is an exclusive base from which to discover Ruaha on day and night game drives and walking safaris. 


Jabali Ridge is a stylish camp in the wildlife-rich Ruaha National Park, set on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Mwagusi River and Ikuka escarpment. 

Rooms and Suites

Jabali Ridge’s eight suites are set among giant granite boulders. Relax in the hammock on your wooden deck and unwind with a book. Cool off in the glorious infinity pool, which overlooks the vast plains, or head to our spa to smooth out any tensions with a hot-stone massage. After a day spent walking through the bush or tracking lions in a game vehicle, pause for a refreshing G&T as the sun sets over Ruaha.


Jabali Ridge has been carefully designed to blend into its environment, making use of open spaces and natural materials. Even the existing granite boulders have been incorporated to provide privacy and shade. With just eight suites, the camp feels blissfully exclusive and remote. 

After a morning game drive and lunch, spend your afternoon cooling off in the infinity pool with a drink in hand or head to our spa for a rejuvenating treatment before your afternoon activity. Dinner is served al fresco under a blanket of stars.
