A perfect cocktail of remote wildness and luxury
This small and personal tented camp in the Ruaha National Park operates from June to March. It has all the bells and whistles available at a mobile camp. Secluded in a bushwillow thicket, just to the North of the Mwagusi Sand River, it is the perfect vantage point from which to explore the area. The camp’s location is said to be one of the best in Ruaha, being close to the water yet far enough away from other camps to create a sense of privacy. Intimate safari does not get much better than this.
At the lodge
Kwihala Camp is set up in a sparse combretum thicket, and is surrounded by pure, unadulterated wilderness. The centrally located dining and lounge tent has a homely feel that gives you a distinct sense of belonging. The main areas are lit by the glow of the camp fire and lanterns, transporting you to the romance of a bygone era. The campfire is situated under the starry African sky - the ideal place to wet your beak and relive the day's excitement while listening to the natural symphony of the night.
Kwihala camp has six en-suite tents evenly distributed on either side of the central tent. There is a sophisticated charm to the minimalist decor that harmonises beautifully with the wilds beyond. Each tent has a private veranda - the ultimate spot to escape the heat of the day with a cooling beverage. The tents have solar powered electricity for lighting and for recharging batteries, ensuring a minimal footprint on the delicate environment.
This land locked camp’s experiences are based on the raw untouched bush that surrounds it. You’re spoilt for choice and quality here. Choose from day or night game drives, wonderful birding and, to top it off, some of the best and most secluded bush walks Tanzania has to offer. Nocturnal game drives reveal unusual creatures and excitement as antelope come out to feed in the cool of the night and predators take advantage of the dark to hunt.
