Set in Tanzania’s iconic Ruaha National Park, Kwihala Camp is an intimate safari camp in this less traveled wilderness.
Accommodations at the camp consist of only six large, luxury guest tents with either two twin beds or one double bed. A triple room is available upon request. The art-deco style tents have large gauze-screened windows for open views of the bush. The en suite bathrooms feature plenty of hot water, safari-style bucket showers, and flush toilets. A shaded private veranda makes for the perfect spot to sit and watch the wild life pass by. There is also a family tent that sleeps four.
Southern Tanzania’s Ruaha National Park is near the Mwagusi Sand River and is known for its rich and diverse wildlife, which includes a particularly impressive elephant population. Ruaha is the second largest national park in Tanzania, spanning over 12,000 square miles. With low numbers of tourists each year, Ruaha is the ideal place to explore the wonders of Africa in virtual seclusion. The diverse landscape here ranges from baobab trees and granite kopjes to open plains with cooling rivers and woodland valleys. A tenth of the world’s lion population lives in Ruaha and prides of 20 or more are commonplace. Sightings of herds of greater and lesser kudu, sable and roan antelope are frequent, as are glimpses of the endangered African wild dog, bat-eared fox and cheetah.
