Mdonya Old River Camp
Mdonya Old River Camp is situated in the north west of Ruaha National Park beside the old course of the Mdonya River, a few kilometres from the Mdonya Falls. The Ruaha although less well known than some of Tanzania's other parks, has a wealth of game, over 520 species of birds and large concentrations of elephant, giraffe and buffalo.
Accommodation & Facilities
Guests at Mdonya Old River Camp are accommodated in 12 large tents well spaced alongside the course of the old river. Simply furnished, each tent has a double or twin bed with an en-suite open air bathroom that has a flush loo and shower. There is no electricity in the tents and light is provided by candles making this a true safari experience. The dining and lounge tents sit under sycamore fig trees overlooking the dry river bed which is used by game as a corridor, so that guests can enjoy the game viewing while having lunch or relaxing.
Wildlife & Activities
Game viewing at Mdonya Old River Camp is centred on game drives. This camp will suit anybody in search of an authentic tented safari experience well away from some of the other more travelled national parks.
