Top 3 Camps in Ruaha National Park

Far away, in the depth of the Southern Circuit, Ruaha National Park is one of the largest natural reserves of Tanzania – less beaten than Selous, even more wild, quite unaccessible… and because of these reasons, a real surprise! A huge population of baobab trees is the highlight in the landscape of this area, as well as a large number of species are a delight for game drive passionates.

But let’s talk about luxury as well! Such as other areas of Tanzania, even here the offer of accommodation is superb. We selected the top-3 camps of Ruaha National Park. Have a look and contact our experts if you want to book one of them: info@savannahtz.com

Jongomero

Jongomero

Under the magnificent shade trees, on the banks of a seasonal river in the remote southern sector of the Ruaha National Park, Jongomero is gloriously isolated. Far from the madding crowds, this secluded idyll offers a chance to discover true unadulterated wilderness.

Accommodation at Jongomero comprises eight large and well-appointed tented suites, built on raised wooden platforms, under enormous thatched roofs that also encompass a spacious private instant veranda which overlooks the riverbed. Snuggle under warming quilts in an eight-foot wide dhow wood emperor bed and fall asleep to the hum of Africa beyond the canvas and wake up to the morning tea tray and animals ambling past your mosquito net windows.

The quintessence of luxury in the wilds.

Asilia Kwihala Camp

Asilia Kwihala Camp

This small frontier-style camp provides exceptional access to the park’s huge populations of big cats, buffalo and elephants.

Kwihala is an intimate six-bedroom camp where simple excellence is the order of the day. The main area – with its tented lounge and dining room – is the social heart of the camp. Meals are shared either under canvas or in the alfresco dining area beside the campfire, accompanied only by the stirring night sounds of the bush.

With the option of bush walks and night drives with highly knowledgeable guides, safari doesn’t get better than this.

Nomad Kigelia Camp

Nomad Kigelia Camp

Located in the best wildlife area of the great Ruaha National Park, Kigelia Ruaha is a simple tented bushcamp offering all those creature comforts that you need while enjoying one of the best kept big game secrets in East Africa.

They only have six tents and it’s certainly not camping like you know it… no manicured lawns here! The tents are well furnished with locally crafted pale wood furniture and there’s a hot safari-style bucket shower under the stars (the showers are en-suite but outdoors), and a flush loo. One of the tents is the family tent which has two adjoining en-suite bedrooms.

The camp kitchen whips up some tasty feasts – simple but satisfying meals served in the intimate dining tent or better still, 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.

Asilia Namiri Plains

This is one of the most amazing kept secret of Serengeti. Namiri Plains is an area located in the remote Eastern corner of the park, that has been closed for 20 years to visitors to create a safe haven for cheetah.

The area has been re-opened in July 2014 and Asilia has been appointed as its custodian. This is the only camp located here, and it is composed by only 6 luxury tents in the shade
of giant acacias. It offers a 360° view of wildlife crossing the surrounding plains,
the river area with its perennial vegetation and the dense green reed beds that attract birds and smaller wildlife species.

Asilia Namiri Plains is perfect for travellers who really want an ultimate safari experience, loosing themselves in the majestic nature.

Nomad Lamai Serengeti

This small luxury lodge of only 12 rooms sits tucked amongst the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje, with panoramic views of the surrounding areas – a few miles from the place where wildebeests cross the Mara River.

Rooms are designed to maximise the panoramic views, but also to give a window onto life on the Kopje.

Lamai is good not only for travellers who want to spend most of the time game-driving and looking for the most amazing wildlife experiences, but also for people who prefer to have a lazier experience enjoying a stunning view from the verandah of the room or relaxing at the swimming pool.

Serengeti Migration Camp by Elewana Collection
