Mdonya Old River Camp
WELCOME TO MDONYA OLD RIVER CAMP
Ruaha national park is the biggest and wildest national park in Tanzania. And we want you to get lost in it!
We want you to feel the real wilderness, far from everybody else, with only wild animals as our companions. Nothing can make you understand you are an animal yourself more than the roar of a lion next to your ear! When we understand we are animals ourselves we shall surely become aware of the importance of their protection and conservation.
In a way, a stay at Mdonya Old River Camp is a journey to meet our very ancient roots, a time when we were actually part of the bush ourselves, in harmony and equal to all other creatures.
You will fly to the heart of Tanzania, in the center of the country, to a plateau located a thousand meters high at the footstep of the Rift valley. That is where the Mdonya Old River is. Even though we are animals, we do like to have all our comforts but be extremely light-footed.
Accommodation - Twelve tents nestled in a spacious area under the shade of large sycamore figs and Faidherbia albida, spaciously located along the curving banks of the Mdonya sand river. Each traditional safari tent is comfortably furnished, catering for solo travelers, couples, or families. All the tents have ensuite bathrooms with dressing rooms, open-roofed solar-heated showers, and separate flush toilets.
Mdonya tents can be modified to host families, adding an extra tent room on the veranda.
Facilities - The large verandahs are an ideal place for relaxing in between activities or simply enjoying the view of wildlife passing by. Alternatively, help yourself to complementary tea or coffee in the lounge, browse through our selection of wildlife books or make a purchase at our gift shop to support some of our community development or conservation activities.
The picturesque wilderness that the camp is located in attracts an abundant variety of wildlife and you need only sit in the camp with a book and a pair of binoculars to be amazingly rewarded. Impala, zebras, giraffes, kudus, dikdik, elephants, lions, leopards, and other animals are often seen around the area
