Situated in the new safari frontier of Ruaha, you can find one of the most spectacular concentrations of wildlife set in a beautifully diverse landscape that ranges from baobab forests, granite kopjes, and open plains to cooling rivers and woodland valleys. Largely unexplored, Ruaha is as remote as you can get in East Africa.
Ruaha National Park is one of the largest national parks on the continent, a place so vast no person can know it completely, and few have tried. Ruaha houses a tenth of the world lion population – great prides twenty strong or more—that hunt buffalo and elephant in herds of greater concentration than anywhere in East Africa. With its multiple vegetation zones, there is an incredible amount of biodiversity with over 500 bird species, herds of greater and lesser kudu, sable and roan antelope, endangered wild dogs, bat-eared foxes, cheetah, and leopards.
Kwihala prides itself on its high standard of guiding and the camp’s guides are renowned amongst safari enthusiasts for their intimate knowledge of nature and the particular wonders of Ruaha. Game drives can be taken in vehicle or on foot under the guidance of a specialist walking guide.
Kwihala Camp’s six simple but luxurious tents are set deep in the bush on a hillside with stunning views. The camp is rear the Mwagusi Sand River in the Mwagusi Valley, but still far enough from other camps to provide serenity in nature. Guest tents are simple and spacious with en-suite bathrooms with flush toilet and a traditional safari bucket shower with hot water at your request.
Public areas are lit at night mostly by campfire and lanterns, however guest tents have solar generated electricity for lighting and the recharging of camera batteries.
