Rukiya Safari Camp
Rukiya Safari Camp is located in the Wild Rivers Nature Reserve in the greater Kruger region of South Africa. It is an intimate, tented camp built beneath old riverine trees on the banks of the Blyde River. It is an low impact camp with environmentally friendly construction, beautifully reused timber for decking and furniture, and light canvas for the tents.
There are 6 canvas tented rooms built on timber decking and elevated off the ground overlooking the Blyde River, which flows in front of the camp. Décor is simple, stylish and in tune with the natural ambience of the camp. Wooden walkways lead the path from the tents to the main camp area, which houses an infinity pool, boma, large balcony and canvas lodge area.
Safari activities include Big 5 game drives and bush walks, while there is a host of activities in and around the nearby town of Hoedspruit (roughly 20km from camp). Morning game drives include breakfast in the bush before returning to camp, making it an adventurous and unforgettable experience.
