Ikuka Safari Camp

Ikuka Safari Camp is in Ruaha National Park and is quite noteworthy due to its spectacular location atop the Mwagusi Escarpment in southern Tanzania, it is also owner run and managed. The site allows for expansive and breathtaking views that are unparalleled by other accommodations in the area. The views are perfectly complemented by an intimate and personalized and experienced that can only be found in smaller accommodations in the African bush country. The seven guest bandas on the property are designed to blend in with the surroundings and give guests the utmost experience of being connected with nature by way of stone, thatch and natural wood construction. Awaken in the morning to the calls of nature from the comfort of a large, cozy bed. When you are ready to start the day’s adventure, freshen up in the en-suite bathroom that offers a large stone vanity with two vessel sinks, shower, and toilet. You can then curl up with a cup of coffee or tea on your private elevated wood deck that surrounds the entire banda or in the relaxing sitting area, both of which provide breathtaking views of the Ruaha’s wilderness reserve. Spend a night under the stars in the Rock House -- very romantic!

Game drives

We have both land cruisers and land rovers available for game drives. Drives can be morning or afternoon. We recommend departing as early as possible around 6.30am with a picnic breakfast and back to camp for lunch for a siesta and dip in the swimming pool before heading out again around 4pm for an afternoon drive, all our game drives return by dark.

Walking safaris

We can walk directly from the camp, the hilly terrain from camp makes for stunning scenery while out walking as well as a chance to get some good exercise. We often see elephant, impala, kudu and giraffe on our walks as well as plenty more flora and fauna. A walk is a great opportunity do discover many of the smaller details of the bush that you might miss while on a game drive.
