Ikuka Safari Camp is a charming, owner-operated luxury camp nestled in the vibrant core of Ruaha National Park. While the camp fulfills all your travel dreams with its breathtaking landscapes, luxurious tented suites and epic wildlife encounters, it's the stunning surroundings that truly take center stage.
The central communal area beckons visitors to unwind and savor the moment.

The swimming pool, positioned on the outer deck's edge, offers uninterrupted views of Ruaha, creating an ideal setting to relax after a day of wildlife observation. The lounge and dining areas have been meticulously designed to evoke a homey atmosphere, and they have succeeded admirably.
Ikuka's stone and thatch bandas exude rustic charm while incorporating every conceivable luxury, from 24-hour electricity to consistently hot water. Each banda features generously-sized king beds adorned with pure cotton linen and ample storage for traveler essentials. A detached bathroom with double vanity and a mini lounge area enhance the comfort of the stay. Outside, an inviting veranda showcases the breathtaking views once more—simply open the mesh doors and curtains to greet the morning.
