Mdonya Old River Camp

Mdonya Old River Camp

At Mdonya you never feel like an intruder. Designed with a conscious desire to remain simple, the camp’s rustic setting makes you feel closely connected to the natural environment. And the wildlife obviously feel the same way about you: they wander through the camp as if it’s just another step in their journey.

A beautifully secluded tented camp surrounded by woodland along the course of the old Mdonya riverbed, offering 12 double tents, convertible to triples and 2 into family tents accommodating 4 – 5 guests if required. All tents provide en suite bathrooms with solar heated hot water, and a private polished floor veranda. Communal dining takes place under a large open-sided tent for breakfast and lunch, with dinner served under the stars. An excellent menu is created weekly, using all locally grown fresh produce, with a wide selection for vegetarians. A very comfortable lounge offering a wide range of wildlife reading materials, tea + coffee throughout the day, and an open fireplace for sundowners and after dinner drinks.

Tailored safaris are conducted from here across the expanses of Ruaha National Park in open sided, covered, purpose-built vehicles for optimum viewing pleasure.
