Ikuka employs 16 permanent staff including chefs and guides, not to mention all the guys who work so hard behind the scenes to make your stay magical. Mark and Chloe and the rest of the team look forward to welcoming you to Ikuka and the wilderness of Ruaha.


Mark and Chloe met in the Selous Game Reserve, sharing a passion for the African wilderness; they have worked for many years at some of the finest safari camps in Tanzania. Mark is based in the camp and Chloe splits her time between Ruaha National Park and Iringa with their daughters.


Giles was born and raised in Mombasa and had the vision to open a safari camp with Mark & Chloe when he came to Tanzania to visit them a few years ago. He is passionate about wildlife and conservation and now also about Ruaha National Park, his new second home!
