'Where to begin. A truly magical place. When you close your eyes and picture what a dream safari may look like it will be Ikuka that you imagine. From the moment I arrived I felt completely at ease within a beautiful camp hosted by a team that defines hospitality. If I say much more it will ruin that “jaw dropping” wow factor moment when you arrive for the first time. A feeling which I’ll never forget myself. Looking forward to returning.'
'The upmarket Ikuka Safari Camp was our first home . Built high on the park's Mwagusi escarpment, the camp's perch was the perfect place to understand the geography of Ruaha. Every staff member added to the welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. The lodge is beautifully constructed. Gazing across the horizon, you are immediately immersed in the lap of luxury, all the while in awe at the wonder of mother nature.'
'One of the most enchanting camps in all of Africa, Ikuka, a highly sophisticated and delightful camp set high on the edge of the Mwagusi escarpment..'
'What an amazing stay at Ikuka! We really felt like part of the family, everyone has been so friendly, welcoming and full of fascinating stories! We feel like we’ve learnt a lot! Thank you for looking after us so well, an incredible lodge with wonderful views and people to match. Paul was a brilliant guide and Mark and Chloe the perfect hosts! Hope to be back again in the future.'
'It is with heavy hearts that we depart Ikuka. Ikuka has captured my soul and it is without a doubt one of the finest camps we saw on our 11 day trip of the Selous & Ruaha, but also of my 24+ years in the travel industry! You will see more of me; in the flesh and through the lucky clients I send to your corner of Ruaha heaven!'
'We arrived home safely and I just wanted to say another big thank you for our stay at Ikuka. You have created a beautiful and magical place in Ruaha. In so many years as a fashion director I had never travelled to Africa (aside from Morocco and Tunisia but its definitely not the same!!) and I totally fell in love with it. From the look and atmosphere of the camp itself, to the service, food and impeccably high standards you have set, it was a wonderful stay for us all. You must be so proud of what you have all created.'
'Thank you for looking after us so well - we were thoroughly spoilt by everyone! The location is awesome - as is pretty much everything else - absolutely wonderful!'
'We have really enjoyed our time here at Ikuka surrounded by such lovely people. All the staff are extremely welcoming and enthusiastic and make you feel at home. Such a beautiful setting and we dream of returning in the future. Could not have wished to be at a better place. Brilliant food, amazing surroundings and beautiful animals, what more could you want. Thank you so much to everyone here at Ikuka.'
'Thank you so much for a fabulous stay! The camp is wonderful and the views fantastic - sometimes it’s hard to know which way to look! We saw some amazing wildlife, including baby elephants, a lion cub and even a leopard, it’s been incredible. We certainly hope to come back soon!'
'Died and gone to heaven” is how it felt arriving here - we have had the best time and hope to return. Wonderful welcome, with amazing attention to detail, meeting our every conceivable need. So many thanks to every member of the team, not least Ernest, who was a great guide.’
