Located in the best wildlife area of the great Ruaha National Park, Kigelia Ruaha is a simple tented bushcamp offering all those creature comforts that you need while enjoying one of the best kept big game secrets in East Africa.
A grove of Kigelia (Sausage Tree) is home to our simple tented camp. We fell in love with this camp because of its location in the best game area of Ruaha National Park. We felt it to be a perfect spot from which to explore - the camp's simplicity and focus on the essence of safari being totally in keeping with the Nomad way of doing things.
We only have six tents here and it's certainly not camping like you know it - we've got airy tents that provide shelter from the elements without detracting from the beauty of the natural bush setting...no manicured lawns here! 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.
The camp kitchen whips up some tasty feasts - simple but satisfying meals served in the intimate dining tent or better still, under the stars. Like all bush camps, there's a camp-fire where the essential sundowner can be enjoyed as the hot day gives way to cool night.
