FOUNDERS STACY AND HEZRON TELL US WHAT MAKES A STAY AT KICHUGUU CAMP SO SPECIAL
A charming camp with touches of luxury set amongst acacia woodland with superb views of Tarangire National Park
Kichuguu strikes many as an odd choice of name - it means “termite mound” - but you'll soon realise why when you see the multitude of termite mounds of Tarangire. A great reminder that the park is full of big and small wonders. It’s also worth mentioning that Kichuguu was just recently opened in 2017 and offers a different but powerful opportunity to experience Tanzania wildlife.
We have constructed nine tents in king, queen and triple configuration with private verandas. Each tent has an en-suite with flush toilets, running water and a safari-style bucket shower The camp's design represents its name well - the organic features and structures of termite mounds are present throughout the camp.
Tarangire National Park is perfectly suited for daytime nature walks, private outdoor picnics and night game drives. There is also a campfire every night, and the opportunity to listen to and share stories.
