Ikuka Safari Camp

Ikuka, in Ruaha really stands out from the others in the park as it only has 6 bandas and sits perched on an incredible escarpment with the best views of Ruaha National Park. Behind all great lodges are great people;  Mark who was born and brought up in the Ruaha area and is the chap behind all the guiding and walking safaris. Expect an intimate, relaxed and luxurious safari here with great views and top guiding.

Ikuka Ruaha - The Details

The main area consists of leather seating areas, a fully stocked bar facing the incredible views over the park, an airy dining space, an upstairs library/wifi and chill-out area complete with floor cushions and an infinity swimming pool for those warm Ruaha afternoons! Each banda has a landscape design with a centrally positioned sleeping area which can be open to enjoy the views or fully closed with mesh doors and linen curtains.

Ikuka offers walking safaris, game drives and fly camping. It is accessible by light aircraft with connecting flights all over Tanzania.

As well as it's great activities and unparalelled views, Ikuka is one of our favourites for real luxury in an unbelievable position - all without losing a sense of authenticity in the wild and beautiful Ruaha.

Ikuka Camp - Reviews

Fantastic lodge, couldn't fault it! The main owner Giles was there so we got to know him a bit. Nothing was too much trouble for Mark and his team, they have the experience just right from the coffee in your room before you go out for the early morning drives, to the G&Ts in the sunset only metres from elephants/buffalo.
