This year we welcome two excellent new properties to our Tanzania safari circuit - Kigelia Ruaha and Kuro Tarangire. Offering excellent opportunities to escape the crowds, these camps are both intimate affairs, with just six tents each. Opening in June 2014, both properties have been built with a deliberately light touch, with solar power and hot water on demand, the rooms are large and comfortably furnished with enormous beds and safari-style bucket showers to complete the luxury wilderness camp experience.

Ruaha is Tanzania’s largest protected area, and is well known for its enormous herds of elephant and excellent predator count, including the endangered African wild dog. Ruaha also boasts some stunning scenery – including several areas filled with majestic baobab trees. Kigelia itself is named for the sausage trees (Kigelia Africana) the camp shelters under, in its peaceful location on the banks of the Ifuguru Sand River, in the heart of the best game viewing area in this vast, untrammeled wilderness.

Kuro Tarangire on the other hand, lies in the centre of one of the best kept secrets of Tanzania’s Northern Circuit. Tarangire National Park boasts one of the highest concentrations of wildlife outside of the Serengeti, with great herds of elephants and other game collecting at the banks of the Tarangire River during the dry season. With 500 species of bird recorded in the area, Tarangire also makes a great birdwatching destination.

Kuro Tarangire is located in a grove of acacia trees, on the main game routes near the banks of the Tarangire River, offering game drives night and day in open sided vehicles, walking safaris, sundowners and bush picnics. The camp is nomadic and at the end of every season, it packs up entirely, leaving nothing behind but the bush.

Both Kigelia and Kuro are perfect additions to some of our other favourites in Tanzania – and to celebrate this we have a very special offer. Anyone booking 3 nights in Kigelia Ruaha and/or Kuro Tarangire between July to October this year will only pay for 2 nights – a perfect excuse to extend your stay in Tanzania and explore a new area.
