The Ruaha River Lodge is the best value option in Ruaha. It has a fantastic location right on the great Ruaha river with lovely views of rolling hills as a backdrop. This lodge is larger than we would usually recommend but we know that when we have used it, guests have been happy and we too have stayed there several times and enjoyed it. Whilst the experience is not as intimate as with our other featured lodges, the good value element after an expensive flight makes Ruaha River Lodge an option for those on a tighter budget.

Although the rooms are stone built so feeling less safari-style, the rooms are spread out and well-spaced along the river-bank, all with large verandas and views.
