Puku Ridge Camp is built on a hillside, providing excellent views of the floodplain and the wildlife that frequents it. The Camp is named for the Puku antelope that inhabits the Kakumbi Dambo (floodplain), which the camp overlooks.
Puku Ridge is a small and intimate camp, with only 6 tents. Accommodation is spacious, with a sitting area, en suite facilities that include an outdoor shower, and a private deck where you can enjoy the surrounding views, and view the wildlife. The tents are also equipped with a ceiling fan.
This is a game rich area, and you are likely to see elephant, lion, wild dog, buffalo, numerous antelope species, and the endemic Thornicroft’s giraffe and Cookson’s wildebeest. The area is also known for its leopard sightings. Activities include early morning and later afternoon/ evening game drives, which allow you to explore the area, and learn much about the local wildlife and environment. The vehicles are open, and thus allow for excellent photographic opportunities.
In addition, there are guided Walking Safaris, which is the best way to really get to know the bush, and appreciate its diversity. Regrettably the camp does not take children of under 12 years of age.
