Asilia Africa are delighted to announce their expansion in Ruaha with the opening of our second property in the park, Jabali Ridge.
- Lesser seen species such as wild dog, sable antelope, roan antelope, Liechtenstein's hartebeest and both Lesser and Greater kudu can be found in the park.
- A true wilderness experience: 20,226 km² with low vehicle and visitor numbers means an exclusive, uncrowded safari in contrast to the busier north.
- The eco-system is home to 10% of the world's lion population and these lion regularly hunt buffalo and giraffe making for explosive game viewing.
- The park is a transition zone between the southern (Zambezian) ecosystem, characterised by miombo woodland, and the eastern (Sudanian) ecosystem is characterised by savannah landscapes. This is what accounts for the incredible diversity, with over 1600 plant species and 574 bird species.
Why Jabali Ridge?
- Infinity pool for cooling off on hot afternoons and spa facilities for reviving tired travellers.
- Excellent location close to the core game viewing area of the Mwagusi River.
- Sophisticated accommodation designed by Caline Williams Wynn who worked with us on The Highlands.
- Views all the way to the Mwagusi River from Jabali's elevated location up on a kopje.
- Senior guide and management team for a hosted safari experience offering game drives, walking safaris and night drives.
Following a report on fleet additions yesterday was it finally possible to get the Coastal Aviation management to confirm their planned new destinations.
One, Dolly Estate, is notably near Usa River outside Arusha, which will allow safari clients, business travelers and of course golfers who aim to tee off at KiliGolf to have almost direct access to the course and the neighbouring communities. The date when flights will commence will be announced here in due course.
The destination will be a scheduled stop, normally served with one of the airline's reliable Cessna C208B Grand Caravans.
For June next year did the airline's CEO Julian Edmunds then name Lake Natron as an additional stop over destination, probably in combination with flights to the Serengeti and Manyara, finally opening up the Lake Natron area to visitors preferring to fly in rather than having to take the arduous and long road journey from Arusha.
Coastal is best known for their tourist flights from Dar es Salaam to Zanzibar and Mafia and national parks and reserves like the Selous, Ruaha, Rubondo and of course across the northern circuit out of the Arusha Municipal field to Manyara, and the various airstrips across the Serengeti.
