Comprising of just 7 beautifully appointed rooms, each with its own panoramic vista of the Ruaha wilderness, Ikuka offers a compelling insight into the dramatic wilds of Tanzania.

Owned and run by seasoned African safari veterans, Mark and Chloe Sheridan Johnson, Ikuka Camp offers guests the opportunity to enjoy some of Africa’s most incredible landscapes and wildlife rich area in the knowledge that their stay is also supporting the local communities and protects the area’s ecological heritage.

Each of the seven spacious tents have fantastic views over Ruaha National Park. Interiors comprise of white quartz from the escarpment itself along with other locally and sustainable sourced materials. All rooms have 24 hour electricity, fans and hot water as well as large super-king beds, a spacious bathroom area and a lounge area complete with comfortable leather seating leading out onto large private balconies. There's also a family room, perfect for couples or families.

Set up high on the Ikuka escarpment overlooking the Mwagusi river, the central communal area is comprised of a well stocked bar, a comfortable lounge area, an airy dining space, a swimming pool with a lounging deck plus an upstairs library area. The light, contemporary and airy communal spaces are all intimately designed to make guests feel at home and relaxed.

Game drives are in open 4WD safari vehicles, usually leaving early morning, with a picnic, between 6-6.30am returning for lunch and a rest at the camp.  Afternoon game drives are between 4-4.30pm and return to camp by 7pm. Alternatively, guests can explore the bush on foot, accompanied by Mark or another camp guide, offering the opportunity for a true connect with nature and to see things from a different perspective.

Ruaha National Park

Home to an incredible diversity of wildlife, including some of the largest populations of elephant and lion left anywhere in Africa, Ruaha is known for its diverse landscapes of savannah, mighty baobab trees, miombo, rocky hills, kopjes and the Great Ruaha River.

Bird watching.

Ruaha is a birder’s paradise; more than 500 species of birds have been spotted here, including eagles, ospreys, herons, pelicans, ducks, geese, bee-eaters and guineafowls. Don't forget your binoculars!
