Welcome








MDONYO OLD RIVER CAMP

LOCATION: 
In
Ruaha National
Park
, the second largest in Tanzania
and a few kilometres from the Mdonya
Falls
. A two hour
exciting game drive from the airstrip, this camp, in its simplicity lets you
feel absorbed in forest life. The tents are located on the banks of Old
Mdonya, now a sand river and which wildlife like to use as a corridor in the
wilderness. Best way of getting here ? By aircraft from Dar
es Salaam
or Zanzibar,
or by road via Iringa.

NUMBER OF ROOMS
& DESCRIPTION:

Scattered under the shade of large sycamore figs and Acacia Albida, there are
only 8 twin bedded tents, each with its own toilette and shower. The tents
are simple but comfortable, furnished with twin beds veiled by mosquito net
and with a large verandah where you can relax on a chaise lounge to observe
the wildlife around you.

RESTAURANTS & BAR:
In keeping with the environment and the size of the camp, there is a
small central dining area in the shade of the trees. Completely open, dining
"al fresco" in Africa on the banks
of a sandy river seems bizarre. Experience it once, and especially here, and
you will be in love with it forever. Faire is simple and wholesomely
adequate. A fully stocked bar services is available.

OTHER FACILITIES & SERVICES:
This is a camp located in the middle of a large wildnerness area so all
activities here are designed to optimise the wildlife experience. Sitting in
camp with a book and a pair of binoculars may be quite rewarding .. however
game drives are flexible, not limited by schedule and obviously cover more
ground. Guest get to see and experience a breathtaking mosaic of ecosystems,
from the river pools to the dry african savannah, criss crossed with Baobab
valleys and enormous granite monoliths.
