We had wonderful two nights at the lodge, enjoying the view over the Ruaha NP. The hotel team is very motivated and friendly - especially dinner (incl. sun-downer) was a big pleasure. The place feels like "come as a guest and leave as friend"

Hello, so people travel by renting 4by4s from Iringa Town to take them to the lodge or others use public transport which might be unreliable. I’d suggest you write them an email for more info and rates info@ruahahilltoplodge
