Kichaka Expeditions was established in 2013 by Andrew 'Moli' Molinaro and his partner, Noelle Herzog, to concentrate primarily on walking safaris in the remote Ruaha National Park. Kichaka's main camp, also known as Base Camp, is seasonal, moving to different areas to be in the best game areas throughout the year. There is also a fly camp which can be set up in even more remote locations and is available for guests staying longer than three nights.

Activities revolve around long morning bush walks complemented by game drives. You'll be led by Moli, who's always eager to share his knowledge and love of nature, and will come away with an in-depth knowledge of the African wilderness and its wildlife. All bookings are exclusive so activities can be tailored exactly to your needs and wishes.

The three tents are of the traditional safari type, with canvas walls supported on sturdy metal frames. They provide comfortable accommodation in the bush and are always erected beneath trees, which provide welcome shade from the sun. The tents have plenty of standing space and have flysheets to keep the interior cool and provide protection in the event of rain. Each tent has washing facilities nearby, which include a short drop toilet, bucket shower with hot water on request, and hand basin. At the front of each tent there's a pleasant, covered veranda, ideal for passing the time between activities and gazing out over the vast expanse of unspoilt bush.
With a maximum of just six guests, Kichaka is an intimate camp where you'll soon get to know not just your fellow guests but also your guides and all the camp staff. Meals are served in the shaded mess area and eaten together around a large dining table. There are chairs and sofas for relaxing, and a campfire that is the camp's focal point at night.

Client Rating for Tanzania 5/5 from 217 reviews

Do you really want to get away from everything and everyone? Do you love the idea of just walking and being in the African bush – no vehicles? Are you comfortable with the idea of simple, but comfortable facilities? Do you want to spend time with one of two excellent safari guides – Andrew (‘Moli’) the owner, and Jacques? If this appeals, I’d highly recommend this unique and remote camp in Ruaha. Come and just relax into the African bush - I’d personally stay here for at least 5 nights, longer if I could.
