Kigelia Camp Highlights

Kigelia is a small discreet camp secluded in a grove of Kigelia Africana or 'Sausage' trees. The backdrop of a Baobab forest, rocky hills and the Great Ruaha River makes the camp incomparable. Kigelia operates in a socially and environmentally responsible way, placing a minimal footprint in these precious areas of natural beauty. Some fascinating sightings can be enjoyed straight from the comfort of the tents, with game frequently wandering through and elephants often coming to feed on the vegetation and tap the dry riverbed for water.

Elephants, zebra, impalas and giraffes are abundant. Both the greater and lesser kudu can be seen, as well as the magnificent eland, sable and roan antelope. Ruaha has an abundance of predators, the lion population is very healthy and it's common to see a pride with twenty or more members.The African wild dog also occurs in the park, although their huge ranges make them more difficult to find. Hyena and jackal are common camp visitors and are often heard after dark.
