Kigelia Ruaha Safari Tents

A grove of Kigelia (Sausage Tree) is home to this simple tented camp. There are only six tents here and it's certainly not camping like you know it - bigt airy tents provide shelter from the elements without detracting from the beauty of the natural bush setting. The tents are well furnished with locally crafted pale wood furniture and 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.

Activities at Kigelia Camp

1 of 1

Game drives in open 4WD vehicles

Comfy custom-built open game drive vehicles are perfect for traversing the beautiful and varied habitats of the park. Game drives are the best way to get up close to the multitude of wildlife that calls Ruaha home; big-maned lions, great herds of elephant, the handsome greater kudu or statuesque sable.

1 of 1

Night drives

Getting out after dark allows you to see nocturnal critters who are otherwise hiding out during the day. Whether it's the smaller but fascinating genets, civets and porcupines, or the big game like lion and leopard it's a thrilling encounter and a totally different perspective. Night drives need to be pre-booked.

1 of 1

Walking safari

Between drives, you can also get out on foot. Being on your own two pegs gives you a totally different experience. You can stand beneath the towering baobab trees, feeling the smooth warm texture of it's mighty trunk beneath your fingers, or crouch to examine the antics of an ant lion as it hunts from a sandy cone in the dust. Walking gives you an appreciation of the tranquility, complexity and vastness of the African wilderness and we think it's one of the best things you can do on safari. Being in the company of a trained and experienced guide both ensures your safety and opens the door onto the wonders of our natural surroundings.
