Contact Us About Kigelia Ruaha

Kigelia Ruaha is where you go when your soul seeks the humbling solitude of giant baobabs, the exhiliration of encountering Africa's big cats or great herds of elephant; where the focus is on experiencing nature and not the gold taps, and where you can feel at home while simultaneously enjoying the care of a dedicated team.

Kigelia Ruaha has occupied this spot for many years and now joins our collection of unique camps in some of East Africa's most diverse wild places.  We chose our locations for the essence of the safari experience that they still offer in an increasingly busy world. Kigelia is exemplary in that it lies in the best game area within this vast and beautiful park. 

The camp itself is also just up our street – beautifully airy tents set beneath the boughs of the Sausage Tree (Kigelia Africana) after which it was named.  It has a charm and simplicity which, for us, means that it highlights the surrounding landscape rather than detracts from it.  Falling asleep under canvas to the calls of leopard, and waking in the dappled light of the sun as it peers through the bush is simply magic.

From here we get to explore on foot and in open vehicles, in search of elephant and lion, the statuesque greater kudu and noble sable, as well as all the smaller creatures that call this place home.  We’re very much a transient presence in this place of wild things, which is how we feel it should be.  We’re delighted to share it with you.
