Rukiya Safari Camp is located in the Wild Rivers Nature Reserve neighbouring the Greater Kruger. 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. There is also the Rukiya River House which is perfect for families and groups of 4 wanting a more exclusive safari experience. The house had a private verandah overlooking the river, and is located next to the camp, guests can enjoy their own private house whilst still enjoying the lodge facilities such as the pool area, sun loungers, bar, and dining experience.
