Kwihala Tented Camp, Ruaha

Kwihala Camp has a found a really great happy medium.  It has achieved a true, raw, wilderness which compliments an extremely polished service and comfortable accommodation.  It does give you a real experience in the Tanzanian bush which makes the camp a very special place to go and stay.

Kwihala Camp - The Facts 

Kwihala is a very luxurious way to blend into your environment and enjoy a true Ruaha Safari experience.  It is situated very close to the Mwagusi area of the park, an area known for very good game viewing.
It offers its guests a very different style of luxury safari.  The surroundings are raw and wild and the camp blends nicely into it.  The main tent is small, elegant and very comfortable. It is designed in a simple fashion with locally made tapestries adorning the canvas walls. From the main tent you can see the pathways leading off through the bush to the secluded guest tents and dining areas.  The camp itself is very small, which makes the service extremely personalised.
The tents are spacious and very comfortable (especially the beds which prove quite hard to arise from for the early morning game drives!), the en-suite bathrooms are well appointed.  The tents are nicely spread out, enabling each guest the opportunity to really enjoy the park the way it should be, wild and remote.
We have always been very impressed with the guiding at Kwihala.  They tend to encourage the guests to really get involved in the whole experience.  When they deem it safe they get you out of the vehicle, and show you details that would seem invisible unless you were up close and personal.  It makes the drives a much more exhilarating and memorable safari experience.  Festo, the head guide, is particularly able at manoeuvring vehicles into good positions for keen photographers.
Last but not least, the meals that they serve up at Kwihala are of the highest standard. You will not go hungry there!
