Mdonya Old River Camp

At the heart of Ruaha National Park, near the Mdonya Waterfalls and stretching along the Old Mdonya river bed, Mdonya Old River Camp is a truly exciting bush destination.

Eleven spacious Meru-style walk-in tents dot the river bed, shaded by layered canopies of sycamore figs and acacia trees. Tents are comfortable, with twin or double beds, ensuite bathrooms, outdoor solar showers and private verandas with panoramic views of the river bed.

At Mdonya you never feel like an intruder. Designed with a conscious desire to remain simple, the camp’s rustic setting makes you feel closely connected to the natural environment. And the wildlife obviously feel the same way about you: they wander through the camp as if it’s just another step in their journey.
