Kigelia Camp - luxury in the bush

Again a wonderful place to stay with very good guides and staff.

Great to sit around the camp fire with a sundowner.

Excellence in the bush

Kigelia was a great experience in the Ruaha. It was remote, hidden among the trees, and only had 6 tents for guests. It had a couple of resident elephants who joined us every so often, at one time looking closely into the mess tent.

Mollel our guide was magic. He found so many animals for us: 17 lions in one spot and a single cheetah were probably the highlight although we also saw a leopard on the amazing night drive (as well as genets, an african hare, an African fox, and many night creatures), and many elephants, buffalo, birds (the highlight being a small owl), kudu, zebra and giraffes of course, jackals, hyena, warthogs, hippo etc etc. We ate at night under the stars and were excellently looked after.

Hot water was always available and the food was great despite the remoteness. Thanks to Musa, Godfrey and the team for excellent service. Don't miss the Ruaha or Kigelia Camp.

Kigelia camp review

Camp in a beautiful setting by the dried up river, with elephants often close to camp and birds at a drinking dish. Musa is an excellent manager. Molel was a knowledgable guide and keen to stop to look at all wildlife. His knowledge of birds was good and he is keen to develop it further.

The tent was lovely and spacious and very comfortable. We overlooked the dry river bed and could hear lions roaring at night on the other side. Early morning tea and biscuits were always welcome and kept us going until breakfast which was taken in the bush. We had the best bacon and egg sandwiches EVER on smoky toasted bread! We often sat by a beautiful part of the river watching the birds and wildlife coming down to drink. It was stunning.

I especially enjoyed seeing many of the Tanzanian mongoose species here at Ruaha. We also saw a large lion pride and a beautiful male leopard.
