RUAHA RIVER LODGE

OVERVIEW

Ruaha River Lodge  is set on one of the most stunning stretches of the Great Ruaha River, in Ruaha National Park.


The lodge is split across two locations, along the river, and the other perched high on a nearby kopje, offering a completely different perspective. of the bush wilderness.


You can see wildlife and game throughout the day from the comfort of your room - few other camps are this perfectly situated. 


One of the marvels of Ruaha River Lodge is the wildlife that roams around camp, meaning your safari does not end after a game drive. For safety, Maasai guides take guests on short walking safaris between their rooms and other camp areas.

HIGHLIGHTS


  • Unfenced Lodge - wildlife wander into camp

  • Tanzania

  • Ruaha National Park

  • Luxury safari lodge

  • 24 suites each with a private game viewing deck

  • Big 5 safari

  • Game drives in 4 x 4 vehicles

  • A bar, restaurant and a room with a view - the best views of the Ruaha River and an opportunity to watch animals come to drink in comfort.

  • Game walks with the Maasai


Built out of local stone and thatch, Ruaha River Lodge is built around natural kopjes and capitalises on it's exceptional position on a bend in the river, with the focus of this safari to provide guests with an 'off the beaten track', and an immersive wildlife experience. The remoteness of the lodge goes a long way to achieving this.

WINE & DINE



The first dining area is a long banda by the side of the river. Breakfast is the perfect time to watch the game meander down for a drink, while evenings can be spent around the fire pit, looking down the river, or curled up in one of the sofas with a drink and a book.

The second area is imperiously-positioned atop the largest kopje in the area, situated on a bend, and enjoys commanding views down two sections of the river. This is surely the best sundowner spot in Ruaha.
