Dedicated staff, a fantastic game viewing location and an intimate feel make this an incredible East African safari experience.

Beneath Sausage Trees in a secluded grove on the banks of the Ifuguru Sand River is Kigelia Ruaha, a tented camp in Tanzania’s Ruaha National Park. Sip sundowners beside the camp fire, spot birdlife around the camp and head out on personalised game drives or walking safaris at this charming bush camp.

About Kigelia Ruaha

Find yourself in the very heart of the African bush at Kigelia Ruaha. Small and personal, this tented camp in a fantastic game area of the Ruaha National Park in southern Tanzania, is tucked beneath Sausage Trees (Kigelia Africana) after which the camp is named. Simplicity reigns with six airy thatch and canvas tents complete with outdoor bucket showers. With no fences look forward to game wandering around camp during morning tea and biscuits or sundowners round the camp fire. Experienced, passionate guides aim to personalise each stay to ensure guests get the most out of early morning and afternoon game drives to see prides of lion, herds of elephant and pods of hippos.
