Kigelia Ruaha

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life -

Hop on a bush plane in the Serengeti, fly south for a few hours and you will find the Ruaha Na­tional Park, one of the best-kept big game se­crets in East Africa. The Great Mi­gra­tion doesn’t pass through Ruaha, but you will im­me­di­ately ap­pre­ci­ate the spec­tac­u­lar scenery and won­der­ful soli­tude of this of­ten-over­looked park. Kigelia Ruaha is the best camp in the park. Its six plush tents are erected in a grove of sausage trees, for which the Swahili name is kigelia. Meals take place out in the bush—din­ner in a can­dle-lit riverbed one night and a break­fast un­der the vivid green leaves of a fever tree for­est the next day. This is the ideal spot for pho­tog­ra­phers. Jeeps are kit­ted out to help cam­era-wield­ing guests bal­ance their equip­ment, and the con­stantly chang­ing to­pog­ra­phy guar­an­tees mem­o­rable im­ages. no­mad-tan­za­
