New camp in Ruaha : Asilia

Asilia unveils new Kokoko Camp for Ruaha in July 2024

Asilia Africa is expanding its portfolio in southern Tanzania. Opening on 1 July 2024, this small 3 tent camp puts the focus entirely on the safari experience, keeping the accommodation pared back and simple in style, ensuring nature is the real star of the show.

The camp is located in the prime wildlife region of Ruaha, on the banks of the Mwagusi River, at the site which was previously home to Kwihala Camp. As promised, we have reimagined what this area could offer and are excited to share this new concept with you.

The camp is booked on an exclusive-use basis for up to 6 guests, hosted by one of Asilia’s top safari guides. Guests can enjoy exploratory walking safaris, game drives and night drives, star gazing, and dinners surrounded by lanterns in the riverbed.

Travellers will know the camp crew by name, watch as meals are cooked over the fire, and remember what the true essence of safari is all about: being out in the wild, exploring, discovering, and making memories.

There are just 3 guest tents, each made of mosquito net mesh to maximise the views. Each has an en suite bathroom with flush toilet, bucket shower, and hand basin, and a weatherproof cover which can be folded back on clear nights to sleep under the stars.

All of the information you need, including render images of the camp design, property factsheet, and tent layouts is available on the Asilia Agent Space.

Southern Tanzania Private Vehicles 

Our Southern Tanzania camps have enhanced their safari offering for next season (from 1 June 2024) to include private vehicles for game drives for all guests. Private vehicles were already included at Jabali Private House, Usangu Expedition Camp, and the new Kokoko Camp, but will now also be offered at Jabali Ridge and Roho ya Selous. Other activities such as walking, boating safaris and airstrip transfers will remain shared activities but the teams in camps will offer these privately wherever possible, depending on guest choices in camp.

As always, if you have any questions, or would like to schedule training with your teams to talk through our updates and our portfolio, please contact your Agent Relationship Manager or email
