Fodor's Review

Set in a forest of baobabs and sausage trees along the Ifaguru sand river, Kigelia has a prime location in Ruaha. This camp has a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere. The tents, are spacious, cool, and inviting. Every tent is furnished with unique, locally crafted furniture and has en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets and outdoor safari style bucket showers under the stars. This is a perfect place to sit in the tranquility and shade of a sausage tree and relax, quietly watching the passing wildlife. A very friendly staff and good service are the mark of this welcoming camp. The game in this area during the dry months is exceptional. Bush picnic breakfast or brunch and bush sundowners can be arranged.It costs $350 to bring in a private car, and park fees are $30 per person.
