In brief

Mdonya Old River Camp is situated deep inside the remote Ruaha National Park in southern Tanzania. This rustic authentic tented camp languishes in the shade of large sycamore fig and winter thorn trees, on the winding banks of the scenic Mdonya sand river.

Camp details

The camp has 12 traditional safari tents spaced out along the river, each comfortably furnished and featuring verandahs, en-suite bathrooms with dressing room, open-roofed solar heated shower and separate flush toilets. The tents can be modified to host families, by adding an extra tent room on the veranda.

The large verandahs are ideal for relaxing and viewing the passing wildlife. Animals often seen near camp include impala, zebras, giraffes, kudus, dik-dik, elephants, lions and leopards.


Game drives are usually conducted in the early mornings and late afternoons in open 4×4 vehicles, but the timetable is flexible and not limited by any schedule.  Game drives can be combined with bush breakfasts, bush lunches and sundowners.
