Kigelia Ruaha

Kigelia Ruaha

$ 720 Per adult per night

A grove of Kigelia (Sausage Tree) is home to this simple but comfortable tented camp. Ruaha National Park has to be one of the most scenic in Tanzania. It has acres upon acres of baobab studded plains, sweeping sand rivers, swathes of woodland and seemingly impossible balancing granite boulders, all surrounded by seriously impressive game populations. Kigelia Ruaha sits right in the middle of it all, flanked by ancient baobab forests and overlooking the dry river bed of the Ifuguru River. Ruaha surprisingly is relatively undiscovered and receives far fewer visitors than its more famous counterparts in the north of the country. So, on safari out here you have it almost all to yourself.

Kigelia Camp

This small camp as only have six tents and it’s certainly not camping like you know it. Airy tents provide shelter from the elements without detracting from the beauty of the natural bush setting. No manicured lawns here!  The tents are well furnished with locally crafted pale wood furniture. There’s a hot safari-style bucket shower under the stars (the showers are en-suite but outdoors), and a flush loo. One of the tents is the family tent which has two adjoining en-suite bedrooms.

The camp kitchen whips up some tasty feasts. Simple but satisfying meals served in the intimate dining tent or better still, under the stars.  Like all bush camps, there’s a camp-fire where the essential sundowner can be enjoyed as the hot day gives way to cool night.
