Mdonya River Camp - The Details
Mdonya Old River Camp is located in the Ruaha National Park in Southern Tanzania ideally combinable with Selous but also accessible by plane from Katavi to the West and Arusha in the North of Tanzania. The game area here is very good and also accessible to the Mwagusi area which also very good.
The communal area at Mdonya is a simple tented dining area and lounge area with outdoor sitting area around a camp fire in the middle of the wilderness. A very simple but adventurous camp set up. Located right at the centre of a wilderness area, the dining and lounge tents are under sycamore fig trees overlooking the dry river bed, so sitting in the camp with a book and a pair of binoculars may be quite rewarding.
With just 11 twin or double tents with two of these convertible to family units, all with en-suite out door facilities, (it is possible to shower watching the rising moon or a shooting star!), Mdonya Old River Camp is a small adventurous lodge offering a fun wild safari experience. The tents are simple yet comfortable, furnished with comfortable beds large verandas where clients can relax and observe wildlife that rambles down the old river bed.
Mdonya has good open sided shared vehicles and game driving is the main activity. Currently walking safari is not possible at this camp.
