Rukiya Safari Camp

Rukiya Safari Camp is located in the Wild Rivers Nature Reserve, a private 3000-hectare area neighbouring the Greater Kruger in South Africa. Lying on the banks of the Blyde River beneath old riverine trees, Rukiya is an intimate camp with just six canvas tents and a two-bedroom private house, maintaining low impact to its surrounding environment.

While the reserve is not a big five reserve, it is home to an array of wildlife species and fantastic birdlife for guests to enjoy. Furthermore, Rukiya offers guests a wide variety of safari experiences in the surrounding area, including game drives and bush walks, full day trips to the Kruger National Park and Panorama Route, scenic boat trips and hot air balloon trips - and more!
