Kwihala Camp

Ruaha National Park Tanzania

At Kwihala, we were greeted by the entire staff singing and playing to greet us, and to be handed wet flannels, not just then but every time we returned to camp, something that made the camp feel special from the word 'go'. We took full advantage of the drives, leaving camp at 6am most days with our excellent guides Charles and Tersam, the staff having brought us tea and biscuits at 5am. The tent, overlooking the sand river, where we were entertained by a large number of baboons trooping back and forth for water, was very comfortable, with bucket showers, the guides never failing to ensure that these would be filled at the right moment for our return. The food was superb and we enjoyed the sundowners (both in camp and elsewhere) and meals served beside a fire, to all residents and managers together, on the sand riverbed - a lovely way to meet other residents. On our last evening, when we were the only residents in camp and returned late from a night safari, a fire had been lit outside our tent, and dinner laid for us at a table beside - talk about personal attention...

This gorgeous, high quality bush camp on the Mwagusi River is ideal if you’re looking to get back to nature and be in the thick of the bush, yet still be looked after with personal care and professionalism, and eat meals which wouldn’t look out of place in a good restaurant. The guiding and open vehicles are also good, and the area is just amazing for wildlife. Just don’t expect to be next to water, though, as the Mwagusi is a sand river for most of the year!

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.
