Sunset Mountain Lodge, one of the best Lodges in Ruaha and nestled in Idelemle mountains only 16 km. away from the park boarder boasts of its tranquility and hospitality.
It is amazing to think that in just 2 hours flight or 6 hours of traveling you can escape the hectic urban melee of Dar-es-salaam and be in the heart of one the world’s great wildernesses.
The clamour of car engines is replaced by the grunting of hippos, the chatter of playful vervet monkeys, and the shrill keening of eagles.
The choice of accommodation consists of eleven self-contained chalets overlooking a vast tropical huge lawn of indigenous trees to the horizon, with a magnificent view of the sunset and a rewarding view of lions and wild dogs for the early riser.
With their grace, intelligence and majesty; herds of elephants can be seen around the lodge grounds, mingling with giraffes, hyenas, and various antelope species such as impalas, elands and greater lesser kudu.
