"Jabali Private House review"

3 nights Arrived 15 Nov 2023
"Jabali Private House is fabulous and it was an unforgettable experience. It is located just next to Jabali Ridge giving us a private feeling while being very close to the main camp which is also incredible with a unique setting. The house is extremely luxurious, spacious and well decorated. We travelled as a family so it was great to spend time together in the large living room with its stunning views while also being able to retreat in the large comfortable rooms.

The house comes with its own staff like a butler, chef etc. The food was amazing and they really spoilt us. They catered without any issues for my gluten and diary free dietary requirements. The selection of wines was great and all top notch. Patrick, the chef, always with a smile and preparing delicious food, Alex the maestro of the house was always at hand while being discreet and making sure all was good. Special thanks to Josina and Pascal, the camp leaders, and it was so great to see that both camp leaders are Tanzanians. We won’t forget the amazing breakfast in the dry river as the celebration the staff organised for our daughter’s graduation.

We really enjoyed Ruaha National Park and the location of Jabali Ridge. It was still the dry season with plenty of sunshine so it was a great contrast as afterwards we travelled to Nyerere where it was all green (and more wet). Great landscapes with the hills as a background. This is not the Maasai Mara or Serengeti so we had to look a bit more for the animals but very rewarding when we found them. The guides are exceptional and they did everything for us to make sure we saw what we wanted to see. First time we saw wild dogs (pack of 25) so Jabali will always be a special place for us, plenty of lions and even on two occasions a leopard.

What makes this place truly special are the people like with all Asilia camps and that is why we love Asilia so much. By the time you leave, it is like leaving a family behind. You also feel that by traveling with them you make a positive impact. This is now the second time we stayed at their lodges (previously in Kenya) and every time it is unforgettable experience."

"Luxury at Jabali Private House"

3 nights Arrived 11 Jul 2018
"Our family group of 6 enjoyed 3 nights of luxury in Jabali Private House. We were well looked after by the chef, Hassani, and the butler, Max. The food was outstanding and nothing was too much trouble for them both. A small swimming pool was great for relaxing in the heat of the day.

It was a short walk, or drive in the dark, to the main part of the camp, Jabali Ridge. We went there one evening for a delicious barbecue.

We were taken on game drives by Moinga who was assisted by Marcus. They were excellent in their keen-eyed spotting of game and their knowledgeable descriptions of what we were observing. A highlight was breakfast in the bush during one morning game drive. A table full of fruit, cereals, cheeses and meats with omelettes cooked to order as we sat by the dry river-bed.

The options for walking from this camp seemed to be limited to an area away from the river and as we had spent 3 days walking with Kichaka we just did vehicle game drives from here. There are several camps in this part of Ruaha so we did see the occasional other vehicle on our game drives and you should not expect that you necessarily view any spectacular sighting on your own."
