An intimate bush-camp surrounded by ancient Baobab tree forests, set right in the middle of all the action in Tanzania’s wildest National Park.

The location of Kigelia Ruaha was chosen to provide an immersive wildlife and bush-camp experience. As such, they have chosen the location to rather have elephants and giraffes passing by, instead of being atop a hill with vast views. This is in keeping with the wild and remote feeling which Ruaha evokes and Kigelia Ruaha so beautifully presents, with their simple and understated camp which is right in the middle of all the action.

The camp has six large and cool canvas safari tents with thatched roofs. Each has a large veranda, comfortable beds, en-suite bathroom with flushing toilets and an outdoor classic bucket shower system which is prepared on request by the friendly camp staff. There is also one family tent on offer, which is a large tent with two en-suited bathrooms under one thatch roof.

Ruaha is Tanzania’s wildest national park and has some outstanding game viewing, particularly of lions as prides can often number over 20 individuals. The activities on offer are game drives in open safari vehicles, armed walking safaris with excellent guides, bush picnics and outstanding birding.

Why we like it

  • A classical bush-camp styled camp.
  • Focus is mainly on walking safaris in the area.
  • Outstanding game viewing in Ruaha NP.
  • Combines well with sister camp Sand Rivers Selous.
