Kigelia Ruaha

Ruaha

Located in the best wildlife area of the great Ruaha National Park, Kigelia Ruaha is a simple tented bush camp offering all those creature comforts that you need while enjoying one of the best kept big game secrets in East Africa. A grove of Kigelia (Sausage Trees) is home to this simple tented camp in the Ruaha National Park. With only six tents it’s certainly not camping like you know it – the airy tents provide shelter from the elements without detracting from the beauty of the natural bush setting. Each tent is equipped with a comfortable bed and a wide veranda. The tents are well furnished with locally crafted pale wood furniture and there is a hot safari-style bucket shower under the stars (the showers are en-suite but outdoors), and a flush toilet. The camp has a charm and simplicity which means it highlights the surrounding landscape rather than detracting from it. Falling asleep under canvas to the calls of leopard, and waking in the dappled light of the sun as it peers through the bush is simply magic.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 sun-downer post safari can be enjoyed as the hot day gives way to cool night.
