While fully customizable, a three-night stay at Kichaka generally means three nights at Frontier Camp. A five-night itinerary would follow three nights at Frontier Camp with two nights fly-camping. And a seven-night itinerary would have four nights at Frontier Camp and then three nights fly-camping.
The camp and safaris explore the far-flung corners of Ruaha National Park, well away from all other camps in the park. Ruaha’s diverse landscape uncovers baobab forests, rocky hills, and the Great Ruaha River. However, the main feature is its exceptional wildlife viewing. Elephants are particularly well represented, with well over 10,000 individuals. Plains game such as zebra, greater and lesser kudu, buffalo, and giraffe flourish in great numbers, along with accompanying predators like lion, leopard, and cheetah. The Ruaha River also provides an ecosystem of its own with its huge Nile crocodiles, pods of hippo, and plenty of other smaller mammals and reptiles.
Daily game drives led by expert trackers close in on the wildlife for the perfect picture without disturbing their peace or impacting their natural setting. For a unique and intimate experience, walking safaris immerse visitors in the natural wonders of the flora and fauna found in the Ruaha. A birding paradise, there are over 575 recorded bird species hereabouts. At night, there is no better place to be than either on a night drive spying on the nocturnal residents of the park or gazing up at the wide, clear canopy of stars with the help of binoculars or the camp’s powerful telescope.
