Kigelia offers six large luxury tents which enable guests to enjoy a refined, authentic camping experience in Ruaha National Park. A temporarily open camp, Kigelia offers luxurious accommodation in a wilderness-rich environment.
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.
- Set on Ifuguru Sand River.
- Can be booked individually, or the whole camp can be hired out exclusively for eight people or more.
- 529 bird species recorded.
- It is open from 1st June through 31st March.
