Commanding spectacular views across the Ruaha Valley from its perch on the edge of the Mwagusi escarpment, Ikuka Safari Camp offers a timeless luxury wilderness experience.

It is an intimate camp with just six beautifully appointed tented rooms, each with its own panoramic vista of the Ruaha wilderness from their decks and vast super-king beds. Interiors are simple yet stylish, with white quartz from the escarpment itself along with other locally and sustainable sourced materials, and the rooms feature both 24-hour electricity and hot water.

Overlooking the Mwagusi river below, the central communal area has a well-stocked bar, comfortable lounge area, airy dining space, chill-out library area and a rather spectacular swimming pool.

Owner run and managed, you can be ensured a personal and private safari experience from the warm team here with expertly guided game drives into the great wilds of Ruaha in search of its incredible diversity of wildlife – some of the largest populations of elephant and lion left anywhere in Africa and more than 500 species of bird – or truly connect with nature and see things from a different perspective on an unforgettable walking safaris. Specialist photographic focused drives and visits to the camp’s community project can also be arranged.
