This is my third trip to Africa and based on my experiences the Ruaha River Camp far exceeded our expectations with great food, a perfect location, and most importantly generous amounts of African wildlife. We stayed 12 days and our guide, Corado made every morning's...More
We had a very special weekend at Ruaha River Lodge. Chalets or Banda’s are stone built with wooden verandah/deck overlooking the river. Huge en-suite bathroom. The dining area is also overlooking the river, a beautiful setting watching the animals coming to drink water. Food including...More
Bigger than the other lodges we stayed at, but still personal and welcoming. Very nice cabins, with a great view of the river valley. Lots of wildlife showed up for our viewing pleasure. And one night there were night noises representing lots of the wildlife...More

Hi there, we paid with US Dollars and would recommend taking those. Low denomination for taxi driver type tips plus some Tanzania Shillings you can buy at the hotel if you're having a stay over or airport between international and local transfer. Not really answering your question but, if you budget for beers at $4 each, wine between $18-25. There are safes in the lodges to keep cash in. My other half is pretty sure they would accept credit cards but, I'd check direct with your travel company.
Hope that helps!
