Life changing experiences at Kigelia

Ruaha is wild, expedition country - join us on our daily safaris of discovery here, from a little camp in its remotest reaches.

Game drives

You get a tremendous feeling of anticipation when you’ve grabbed cameras and shades, and left camp with a Nomad guide, in our open vehicles. Who knows what we’re going to find, but for sure there’ll be moments of excitement, fascination and peace amongst the great beasts and herds of Ruaha.

Bush walks

There’s no better tree to hug than a baobab, with their strangely human form. Smooth bark - dust scented. The crevices are home to reptiles, bats or owls. Round the trunks lie crunchy shells of their furry seeds, lemony to taste. It’s only when you walk, that you find this out -and many, many other things about the bush.

Just be

Big days out in the wilds can be very big - all that excitement, sun and dust - so we’ve made sure our little camp is a haven of rest and relaxation. Miles from anywhere, it’s as quiet as can be, except the slosh of water into your bucket shower and the sounds of the bush. No shame just to hang back and take it all in.

Southern Tanzania safaris

This is all about experience. A safari spent in the game rich plains of Ruaha, and the endless wilderness of Nyerere, the south is hard to beat.

Astounding Guide Knowledge

As a solo traveller I was welcomed and really made comfortable. My guide Mel was astounding in his knowledge and willingness to share with me. Some extraordinary memories to help me get by until my next visit!
