Ruaha National Park is named after the river that runs through the southern portion of the park. Ruaha River Lodge occupies a unique and privileged position set around a series of rocky kopjes in a bend of the Great Ruaha River
The lodge blends seamlessly into its surroundings and affords views up and down the river. Game is drawn to the river from the neighboring hills and guests can witness the great wildlife dramas unfold from the comfort and protection of their self contained natural stone and thatch 'banda'.
With resident hippos and crocs there is always plenty of action to watch and several incidents of lion or leopard kills have been seen from the lodge.
Ruaha River Lodge has 24 individual stone and thatch rooms with en suite bathroom facilities and solar heated hot water. The camp is divided into 2 separate restaurant and bar areas; the hilltop bar and the riverside bar; each restaurant is hosted.
Each room is sited along the river bank and has a large private veranda. All bandas can be double, twin, single or triple and extra beds can be added on request.
The rooms have a lounge area with sofa and armchair, coffee table, writing desk and have mosquito proof doors and windows.
Game drives are taken in open, adapted 4WD vehicles. The vehicles have tiered Seating and roof shading. Game viewing is shared unless a private vehicle reserved. Guided game walks are available.
Fly camping can be pre booked for a minimum of 2 nights.
