An intimate, exclusive-use property surrounded by lofty, ancient baobab trees, Jabali Private House is perfect for families and friends. It has three bedrooms, a lounge and a dining area, plus a private pool, looking out over the dense forest that fringes the bordering Ikuka escarpment.

A dedicated team — including a private chef, guide and vehicle — means you can choose to spend all day out on a game drive or enjoy more time at the house relaxing around the pool or savouring a long lunch.

Ruaha National Park is known for its healthy herds of elephants and buffalo and its bold lions, which are known to take down giraffes and even elephants. Night drives allow you to spot often-elusive nocturnal creatures, while walking safaris are a great way to catch sight of smaller animals and plants or learn how to track.

Built around three majestic baobas in the wild, untamed Ruaha National Park, Jabali. Private House is a sophisticated retreat from which you can explore this diverse landscape. The lodge’s remote location offers an air of privacy and exclusivity that will have you feeling as though you have the entire wilderness to yourself. Jabali’s close proximity to the game-rich Mwagusi River is a near guarantee for lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, giraffe and impala sightings. The lodge itself connects guests with nature, welcoming in its surrounding rather than shutting them out. From the open-front style of the room to the precise positioning of the desk and bed, every single spot in the suite is a viewpoint that overlooks all that Ruaha has to offer.
