This wonderfully scenic and comfortable camp is the oldest in Ruaha, situated on
a rocky hillside above a set of rapids on the Ruaha River some 15km from the entrance gate. Game viewing is excellent from the camp, with rock hyrax scuttling around everywhere, hippos resident on the river, elephant passing through regularly, and many other animals coming down to drink. Accommodation is in unpretentious stone cottages or fixed tents – all quite simple and compact. It is divided into 2 camps of 12 rooms each, both of which have their own restaurant and bar. US$295/540 sgl/dbl inc all activities, meals and park fees; drinks are extra. Reduced rates available for locals who drive themselves into the camp.
