Second trip to Mwagusi this year for the wildlife photography. Excellent location, staff, safari guides and Management team. Totally recommended. This time we booked a night time safari and came across Bat Eared Foxes, Serval, Civit, African Wild Cat, Lions, Bush Babies and an Aardwolf. The evening meals are an experience in themselves, under the stars, on the dry river bed around a large fire. It doesn't get much better.

Room tip: All Bandas offer excellent views and service

The game and the camp were amazing. We had an excellent guide in Baldon, He was eagle-eyed on every drive. I loved the baobabs sprinkled everywhere.
The food was the best by far of the camps I have stayed in Ruaha and dinners in the dry riverbed with a full moon gave memories to carry for ever. My tent was beautifully furnished and large, I had monkeys, elephants and a few fruit bats keep me company.

A wonderful holiday experience.
Thank you to all the staff for such a special time. Everything worked well, the game drives were informative and much wildlife was seen thanks to the guides incredible eyesight.
The food was the best by far of the four different camps we stayed in. Delicious.
The setting was special..... lovely to loll in a hammock by the river (though dry in the yellow season) and see giraffe, elephant, Impalas and baboons wandering through. I had rock plated lizards visit and a python too! Nature at her best and best of all, a leopard sighting, perfect.
Thank you.

What an amazing experience it was to stay at Mwagusi Camp! Our childrens' first experience of a safari and a real bucket list holiday. The bandas were so much better than they appeared in the photos, which do not do them justice. There always seemed to be a cooling breeze on the veranda or inside the room. All the staff were so friendly and could not do enough to help - even managing to mend a flip flop! Evening meals in different locations around the river bed were a real treat and it was lovely to get to know other guests from around the world. The quality of the food was fantastic! The wildlife was abundant, with many close encounters that will live on in the memory for years. We would certainly recommend a morning walking safari, which provided sightings of countless crocs and hippos. Thank you to Trudie and the team for making it such a special trip and especially to Godfrey and Abdullah for their great spotting skills! If you're considering booking - go for it, you won't regret it.

Room tip: Trudie's tip of leaving a flannel in the sink as a ladder for escaping insects really seemed to work!

Thank you for the lovely review and recommendation which is appreciated, we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Evening meals under the stars are very special, our chefs provide meals to suit most preferences. Ruaha has so much to offer, we are delighted our guide and driver introduced you to encounters and sightings that will be memories for a very long time to come. Your kind comments will be passed onto the staff at Mwagusi and hopefully one day they will be welcoming you back. Hope that flip flop is still intact! Thank you from the team at Mwagusi.
