A fantastic camp situated in the remote wilderness of the Ruaha National Park.  It has a formidable reputation as a true safari camp that offers its guests a very authentic experience.  It offers a ‘rustic luxury’ that gives you everything you need in a true Tanzanian style.  Run by the inimitable Chris Fox, who has spent his entire life in the park; it’s real safari, in a great park with awesome guides. It helps that the food and service are also brilliant.

Mwagusi Ruaha - The Facts 

Mwagusi is located in Ruaha, south Tanzania.  The park is one of the most remote and beautiful Tanzania safari locations and the lodge provides an excellent base to take in all its natural wonders.
The bandas are beautiful in a very natural way and blend perfectly into the surroundings.  The open verandas are full of sofas, bean bags and comfy hammocks for the guests to relax and read a book in between games drives.  The bandas themselves are spacious and well decorated in the same easy, rustic fashion.
The river bed that the lodge is built along is often dry and sandy, making it a stunning restaurant.  The sandy bed is lit with lanterns and you can dine out beneath the stars. This is what makes this Ruaha Safari that extra bit special.
Mwagusi is owned and run by the famous Chris Fox, one of the most famous names in east Africa and one of the pioneers of the Ruaha National Park, his family helped to ensure that the land was gazetted and fully protected in 1964.  Waking up and seeing Chris strolling along the river bed with a friendly old bull elephant is a sight to behold, and it’s that atmosphere that makes this camp so special.  Tanzania safari holidays rarely have this level of expertise permeating all levels of the camp.
