Kigelia Camp is set on the banks above the Ifuguru sand river in Ruaha National Park

Price From: USD 850

its name from the grove of sausage trees, Kigelia africana, where it nestles. With only six well-positioned tents, the camp aims to blend in with the surrounding bush, causing minimal environmental impact. Kigelia Camp is a well-designed camp, and perfectly located for game viewing within Ruaha National Park. The area around camp is particularly good for wildlife, but the black cotton soils here mean their wet season closed period can be longer than some other camps in Ruaha.


  • Kigelia Ruaha Safari Tent (5 rooms). 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.
  • There is one unit designed specifically for families at Kigelia. With two full size en suite rooms under one thatch rood this is ideal for families with young children. Your own space, but close together to enjoy being on safari as a family.
