Lodge

Built out of local stone and thatch, the lodge is built around natural kopjes and capitalises on it's exceptional position on a bend in the river

 
 
 

Rooms

Ruaha River lodge is the only ‘lodge’ in the Ruaha, consisting of 24 stone chalets stretching along the river bank.
 
Each chalet has stunning views from a large veranda out the front, while the huge interiors feature a sitting area, writing desk and either twin or double beds. At the rear of each chalet is a large bathroom decorated with found timber, a shower and double basins.
 

 
 
 

Dining/Bar

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.
 

 
 
 

Accessibility

The Lodge has a banda with ramp access close to the riverside dining room.  The bathrooms are large with wide doorway and a plastic chair can be provided for the shower.  There are no other specific adaptations, but staff are always on hand to help in any way required.
