Kichaka Frontier Camp

This camp forms the main base for Kichaka expeditions and is a luxury pioneer styled intimate tented camp. The camp has a ‘leave no trace’ ethos and as such has no permanent structures of fixtures, allowing the entire camp to be relocated leaving the area as it was found.

The camp has only three en-suite, well-furnished tents that sleeps a maximum of only eight guests, creating a very intimate experience. Each tent is very spacious, open and airy. The bathrooms contain a bucket shower system and short drop toilets.

Kichaka frontier has a large and well-appointed mess tent where guests can lounge during the day and enjoy three course meals by night.

Kichaka Untamed

The ultimate way to experience the Ruaha and to enhance your safari overall. Untamed is a basic, yet comfortable fly camp which can be erect and dismantled in only a few hours. This experience opens up more areas to be explored in the Ruaha and is great when guests want to spend a longer time in this incredible park.

The camp can only accommodate six guests in three dome tents which each have adjoining private bucket showers and toilets. Each tent has travel cots which ensure a good night’s rest. Meals are prepared on the campfire itself which ensures a feeling of complete informality and relaxation.

The activities on offer at both camps are walking safaris, day and night game drives, birding, photography and star gazing. For the ultimate experience, combine both camps and extend your stay in the Ruaha ensuring you leave no stone unturned!

Overall one of the best walking experiences anywhere, which ticks all of SAFARI FRANK’s boxes!

*Kichaka untamed open: 01 April – 30 November
