Mdonya is without doubt the best value camp in Ruaha National Park.  It has that same charm and character of its famous sister camp in the Selous, Lake Manze Tented Camp.  Mdonya may be basic and simple but this is what Ruaha is all about.  It is a fierce and wild park and Mdonya is in a very wild area within.  With its great location you can rely on quality game viewing and you don’t necessarily need to spend that extra cash if luxury is not your priority.  Mdonya and has always delivered and we have a lot of faith in this little camp.
 

Mdonya Camp - The Facts 


Mdonya Old River Camp is located in a remote region of southern Ruaha National Park. The main area of the park is the southern boundary by the Ruaha river.  Mdonya is luckily north of the few other camps in this area.  It is a 45 minute drive from the airstrip.  Often used in conjuction with its sister camp in the Selous, Mdonya is a vital piece of your Tanzanian safari holiday jig-saw.

The main area of Mdonya is open on all sides.  The roof is a large khaki canvas that creates an enormous area over a number of armchairs, cabinets and a small book shelf.  It looks empty but when you are sitting in this area with elephant, buffalo, zebra, impala and the rest walking past, you really get a sense of how alive this camp is.

The rooms are basic Meru-style tents and all 11 of them are well spread out creating good privacy.  Each has an extended bathroom with a shower under the stars.  There is no electricity in the rooms but the lanterns and candles make for an even better African atmosphere.  During midday you can even enjoy some peace and quiet from a deck chair on your veranda. A great Ruaha Safari to say the least!

Mdonya offers day game drives in open sided vehicles.

Mdonya camp was the perfect way to immerse us all into the safari holiday. We enjoyed the day- long game drives, starting with coffee and cake brought to the tent, colourful Masai blankets to keep us warm until the sun came up and packed breakfast and lunch in the bush. We saw all the animals we wanted to see and were amazed at the knowledgable guides.
