Mwagusi Safari Camp is situated in Ruaha National Park, Tanzania’s largest National park situated in the southern circuit of Tanzania.
Enjoy your safari in a camp that is built in harmony with the environment. Mwagusi Safari Camp blends unobtrusively with its surroundings with natural thatch, stone and reed. The camp operates with little impact on the environment with solar powered lights and hot water.
The camp is built almost entirely from organic natural materials with guests being treated to a “unique” tented safari experience. Each en-suite tent is comfortably secured under a cooling thatched roof and nestled snuggly into the sandy banks of the Mwagusi River.
The bandas are built into the sandy banks of the Mwagusi River providing their own private and secluded view. Each has large covered verandah, with a comfortable cushioned seating area and swinging hammock, making this the perfect place to relax and view the passing wildlife.
Each banda consists of a large spacious tent sheltered by a cooling thatch roof and set on a polished red floor. The bandas all have en-suite facilities with flushing toilet, an unlimited supply of hot water, shower, sink, shelving, a large mirror and good night-time lighting.
Built using stones, driftwood and bones the bathroom is an area of interesting, unique and original design. Thick comfortable towels and locally produced clove soap are provided.
The lodge offers game drives and walks - one early morning drive and one late afternoon drive taking advantage of the cooler temperatures when the animals are most active.
Vehicles are specially adapted open sided 4WD vehicles each with comfortable seats and high shade awning to enable one to stand and still be in the shade whilst game viewing.
Flexibility is key at Mwagusi and you can choose the time and length of your game drives (from a 6 hour early morning drive, other shorter 2-3 hour drives or a full-day drive with picnic lunch). You will be accompanied by knowledgeable guides and an experienced driver.
