Mwagusi Camp has 12 tents within traditional safari tents ranged on either side of the main area. They are set beneath thatched bandas, each equipped with high-density mattresses and a range of locally-made furniture. All tents have ensuite bathrooms with flush toilet and hot water shower. At the front there is a large covered veranda with a table and armchairs made from local materials, looking out over the riverbed. Solar-powered lights as well as a number of traditional hurricane lamps provide lighting.

Renowned for its high calibre of local Tanzanian guides and their in-depth knowledge of the African bush, Mwagusi offers rewarding, quality wildlife viewing with plenty of opportunities for game drives and walks throughout the area. Vehicles are covered, providing shade for the sun. A walking safari, accompanied by an experienced guide and an armed park ranger, is one of the main attractions of Mwagusi's safari adventure.

Mwagusi Camp has strong links with local communities. Many of the camp's staff are local and the camp is actively involved in the building and staffing of an orphanage for children of AIDs victims and in making improvements to local schools and clinics.
