Intimately Authentic

It was an intimate safari experience with a vast beautiful park at our disposal. The camp is run with charming attentive care by manager Ken and his team. Here, you set the pace with your guide. We chose early morning game drives with bush breakfasts. We had excellent elephant sightings and saw a cheetah mother with four cubs. Super bird watching with a good sighting of a new bird for me, the white crowned plover. The open sided vehicles are very well designed providing comfort with unobstructed game viewing. We also opted for a walking safari with our guide Elisante and two armed rangers and also a night drive. Both were very enjoyable. The camp tents are stylish, spacious, but not overdone. The big beds are very comfortable. Gauze walls give a wonderful inside/outside feel. We enjoyed the hot bucket showers under the open sky that were available any time on request. We loved mealtimes in the mess, sun-downers and then sitting around the campfire with a good gin. We also loved early morning tea on our veranda listening the growing dawn chorus. Ruaha is described as 'Africa as it used to be', Kigelia camp lives up to this reputation.
