A grove of Kigelia trees is home to this simple tented camp, a location in the best game area of Ruaha National Park with a focus on the essence of safari.

There are just six tents, each opening out onto the beauty of the natural bush setting. The tents are furnished with locally crafted wooden furniture and en suite bathrooms with a wonderful safari-style outdoor bucket showers. One of the tents is the family tent which has two adjoining bedrooms.

The camp kitchen whips up some tasty feasts – simple but satisfying meals served in the intimate dining tent or better still, outside under the stars. Like all bush camps, there’s a camp-fire where the essential sundowner can be enjoyed as the hot day gives way to cool night.

Being in one of Africa’s biggest game spots, the thing to do is to get out and explore on game drives and walking safaris with expert guides. Kigelia’s lovely location is also an attractive spot for local birdlife and many an early morning or afternoon can be spent wondering around camp with a pair of binoculars to see what’s around.
