Overlooking a busy waterhole near the Mwagusi Sand River in Ruaha National Park, this small camp offers an old-style African safari experience. The main attractions here are walking safaris, accompanied by an experienced guide, or 4x4 safaris without the disturbance of lots of other vehicles.
Tents are furnished with high-density mattresses, dressing table, wardrobe, luggage racks and safari chairs – all built in traditional style, with lots of intriguing drift wood. Solar power and a number of hurricane lamps provide lighting. Each tent sits under a roof of makuti thatch with a large covered verandah with a table and armchairs made from local materials; the en suite bathroom boasts a flushing toilet and hot shower.
Mwagusi Safari Camp offers opportunities to see fabulous wildlife from the seclusion of your verandah, and there is a full programme of vehicle safaris and walks in the surrounding area. Open-sided four-wheel-drive vehicles are equipped with awnings to provide shade while out wildlife viewing; they also carry reference books, beanbags for photography, a medical kit and radio.

Ruaha National Park is Tanzania at its wildest, and its remote location means it has remained unchanged for centuries. Bordered by the rapids of Great Ruaha and Mzombe Rivers, a vast expanse of wilderness, dotted with fig trees and baobabs, stretches to the hazy blue southern highlands.
