Kwihala Camp overview

Kwihala Camp consists of just 6 tents situated in a game rich area of northern Ruaha near Mwagusi Sand River. The emphasis is firmly on the wildlife and environment, with game drives, walking safari and night drives all offered for a comprehensive safari experience.

The canvas tents are spacious and furnished with proper beds, bedside tables, dressing table, hanging space, rugs and curtains. There are electric lights and facilities for charging batteries and cameras. The ensuite bathroom has a bucket shower and flush toilet. Each tent has a private, shaded veranda, complete with tradtional safari chairs.

The mess tent has separate dining and relaxing areas and has been tastefully furnished. There is ample room for guests to sit and chat over the day's events, while enjoying a cool drink from the bar. Evening meals are usually taken out in the open under the stars by the camp fire, weather permitting.

Kwihala has specially adapted open sided 4x4 vehicles, with raised seating for excellent game viewing. The drives take place in the early morning and late afternoon. The area around Kwihala is abundant in game, with lion, leopard, hyena, elephant, buffalo and zebra commonly seen. This is also a great region for bird watching, with some 220 species of birds. Kwihala also offers walking safaris and night drives depending on season. These are offered subject to weather conditions and to the availability of the armed rangers.

Mr. Richard von Zerneck (18/01/2013)

"Great atmosphere with exceptional guiding. Each meal was special, usually served under the stars near a fire. Food was very good, tent were large, clean, and very comfortable. All staff were great. A truly wonderful camp for those who want to be less than pretentious."

Tracy Edwards
"A small, intimate camp located deep in the heart of the park. This is true bush camping at its best with campfire stories and dinner under the stars! Being a bushcamp means you will have bucket showers and no mod-cons, but these aren’t needed this classic safari experience."
