Mdonya Old River Camp


Call 0121 472 1541 to chat about accommodation


Mdonya Old River Camp is a simple camp, a few kilometres from Mdonya Falls and situated in open woodland alongside the course of the old river well off the beaten tourist track in Ruaha National Park.  It offers an authentic camping experience with great wildlife and a true wilderness feel.

There are 11 large tents all with open air en-suite shower, toilet and washbasin and a private veranda where you can relax.   The camp does not have electricity and so candles and kerosene lamps help to enhance the feeling of being an intrepid traveller from a bygone age and give a romantic feel to the whole experience.

Mdonya Old River Camp has a large comfortable lounge area with a small library and wildlife artefacts, and you can also enjoy a drink here while watching the wildlife passing by using the old river bed as a corridor.  There is a separate dining area, and dinner is often eaten dinner party style, by candlelight under the stars following sundowners around the camp fire.

Activities centre around game drives in 4x4 safari vehicles. Half day and full day game drives are available with friendly knowledgeable guides.
