Fodor's Review

This well-established camp is situated on the shady banks of the Mwagusi River, giving it a prime position in Ruaha for game-viewing. The large, cool, comfortable bandas, crafted from local and organic materials, are tucked into the sandy banks, giving each a secluded view. Wake up to fresh brewed coffee delivered by friendly staff and take in stunning views along the river on your private veranda. It's not unusual to encounter wildlife on your door step. Elephants are regular visitors to the camp, as well as large prides of lion. Mwagusi is run by an owner whose passion for Ruaha and African wildlife is sincere and infectious.
