Accommodation in Ruaha River Lodge
Ruaha River Lodge is split across two locations. The first one is the dining Banda and lies along the river. The other is perched high on a nearby kopje. It offers a completely different perspective.
The lodge in Ruaha River Lodge is built out of local stone and thatch. The lodge is built around natural kopjes. It capitalizes on its exceptional position on a bend in the river
Ruaha River lodge is the only ‘lodge’ in the Ruaha, consisting of 24 stone chalets. They stretch along the river bank. Each chalet has stunning views from a large veranda out the front. The spacious interiors feature a sitting area. There is a writing desk and either twin or double beds. At the rear of each chalet is a large bathroom decorated with found timber. There is also a shower and double basins.
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. The evenings can be spent around the fire pit, looking down the river. You may also curl 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. This is situated on a bend and enjoys commanding views down two sections of the river. This is surely the best sundowner spot in Ruaha.
Ruaha River 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.
