Hotel description
Kigelia Ruaha is an authentic safari experience in Tanzania’s finest wilderness. Set in a secluded grove of Kigelia or "Sausage Trees", high on the banks of the Ifuguru Sand River in the Ruaha National Park, Kigelia Camp is an exclusive semi permanent mobile camp offering a tailor made, private experience, giving our guests a chance to step off the treadmill and connect with the soul of Africa. Our small, discreet camp operates in a socially and environmentally responsible way, placing a minimal footprint in these precious areas of natural beauty. The aim of the camp is to genuinely blend into the ecosystem and allow you to immerse with nature as much as possible. Nomad Tanzania is focused firmly on the integrity of the safari; the luxury of the experience. First and foremost a safari is about the experience; being at the right place at the right time with the best guide is critical. Of course it's important to be comfortable and well fed however these things are only one part of the formula. Kigelia Ruaha is a traditional tented safari experience giving access to remote areas that offer an unparalleled level of exclusivity and fantastic game viewing. Wake up with the sounds of wildlife surrounding your tent as you sip your morning coffee and get ready for a game drive. All snuggled up under a blanket you depart just as the huge African sun rises in the background. Ruaha National Park is truly an amazing destination when it comes to animal encounters along with the breath-taking scenery of ancient baobab trees and the winding Ruaha River. If you are the type that has been on safari before and looking for an authentic, natural experience, with intimate guiding Kigelia is your place.
