We're fortunate to have this lovely camp in the best wildlife area in Ruaha. Whether you're out and about in an open game drive car, treading the game trails with your guide or wondering around the camp in search of birds, this is safari as its meant to be.
When in one of Africa's biggest game spots, the thing to do is to get out and explore. We have comfy custom-built open game drive vehicles which 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.
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.
We're great fans of "going out" for breakfast and enjoying a sundowner in a beautiful spot. These things are rare treats in the safari day and something that you wouldn't do back home, which frankly is the only reason you need for doing them!
Kigelia's lovely location is also an attractive spot for local birdlife and many an early morning or afternoon can be spent wondering around camp with a pair of binoculars to see what's around. It doesn't have to be "all go" on safari...sometimes it's good to just be.
