Ruaha River Lodge occupies a privileged position set around a series of rocky kopjes in a bend of the Great Ruaha River, blending seamlessly into its surroundings affording views up and down the river. Game is drawn to the river from the neighbouring hills and visitors can witness the great wildlife dramas unfold from the comfort and protection of their natural stone and thatch banda. The Lodge is hosted by Peter and Sarah Fox who after a couple of decades living in Ruaha have an unparalleled knowledge of the park.

Its proximity to the Ruaha River provides ample opportunity to hear and see animals coming to drink at night. Game is undisturbed and often seen in between the sprawling accommodation areas, all of which have river views. The lodge is a low key affair, with a relaxed atmosphere. Meals and drinks are provided in two different areas splitting the accommodation areas. This means that the lodge always feels small and cozy, with never more than 20 people in the dining area or bar at any time.


Accommodation at Ruaha River Lodge are solid stone bandas, and they are simply vast. Each usually has a double and a single bed in, a large lounging area and a spacious veranda from where you can look out over the Ruaha River. The veranda is simply furnished with a couple of directors chairs - and is a very peaceful place to while away a few hours. The interior of the rooms consists of bedroom and lounge area. The rooms are subdivided by a low wooden counter which also acts as an area to store clothes. In front of this counter is a comfortable sofa and lounge chair set around a coffee table. Behind this counter, are the two comfortable beds and bed-side tables?  The en-suite bathrooms are also very large, with a flush-toilet, sink and shower.
