Ruaha River lodge Foxes is a fabulous riverside lodge, at the heart of Tanzania's extraordinary Ruaha Park. The Wild, remote and unimaginably beauty of Ruaha National Park makes it one of East Africa's best kept secrets. There are few places in the world with such prolific wildlife. Cheetahs, leopards and lions, elephants, buffalos and hippos, wild dog, roan antelope, you name it, there's a chance you'll see it at close quarters.
The Lodge gets its name from the Fox family. They were pioneers in setting up safari camps within the pristine wilderness. The property includes twin camps (River and Hilltop, with 14 guest bandas apiece), one low open-sided thatched lodge, and the other wrapped organically around the top of a rocky kopje. The Foxes have spent years perfecting the standards of guiding, food and accommodation.
The lodges have 14 guest bandas threading out along the banks of the Ruaha. All are similar in design with walls of stone with curtaines, thatched roofs of makuti palm, coffee-coloured screed floors and front decks which take in a big view of the river. Most bandas have both a double and single bed as well as writing desks, luggage racks and bedside tables made of local mafinga wood.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner is included. Individual camp-style tables are neatly laid with green linen cloths, white napkins and all-white crockery embellished with the Foxes' logo. Meals begin with soup or salad served at your table, after which you help yourself from a huge hot buffet set atop a series of hot plates. Dinners include roast lamb, breaded tilapa and Nile perch, rice and roast potatoes, and a great selection of vegetables.
Head out on game drives in one of the lodge's fleet of 4x4s. Enjoy the spectacular views of the landscape and exotic wildlife.
In the dry season (May-November) take a walking safari accompanied by an armed ranger. Nothing gets you closer to the raw beauty of the African bush and to a real exciting experience.
