Connect with the soul of Africa at Kigelia Camp, a special Tanzanian destination in the heart of the rugged Ruaha wilderness.
A seasonal camp, Kigelia is named for the sausage trees surrounding it. Accommodations consist of six double tents, nestled in the shade of the sausage and baobab trees. The spacious and airy tents are well-furnished with locally crafted pale wood furniture. The en suite bathrooms come with outdoor hot safari-style bucket shower under the stars. There is a family tent which has two adjoining en-suite bedrooms. Each tent comes with a private veranda with stunning views of the Reserve.
The camp is located in Ruaha National 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. Birdwatchers will want to have a fine set of binoculars to catch sightings of the hundreds of species that call the area home. The Ruaha River also provides an ecosystem on its own with its huge Nile crocodiles, pods of hippo, and plenty of other smaller mammals and reptiles.
