Nestled into a bank of the Mwagusi Sand River, this small exclusive tented camp overlooks a watering hole in the riverbed. The sight of over 2,000 buffalo flooding the riverbed below the tents and dining banda is not uncommon. The writer John Hemmingway once wrote that the camp is designed as a "boy's fantasy of independence" along the lines of a traditional old-style African safari experience.
The 10 tents are designed within thatched bandas each with high density mattresses, dressing table, wardrobe, luggage racks and safari chairs all built in the traditional style of the camp. Solar powered lights as well as a number of traditional hurricane lamps provide lighting. At the front of each banda is a large covered veranda with a table and armchairs made from local materials. Each banda has an 'en suite' bathroom with flush loo and hot shower. The best of game viewing can be experienced from the seclusion of your veranda.
There will be plenty of opportunity for game drives and walks throughout the area, in open sided 4WD vehicles, each with comfortable seats and high shade awning to enable one to stand and still be in the shade whilst game viewing. Each vehicle is equipped with reference books and bean bags for photography, medikits and all the necessities for a day in the bush. They also carry radios for communication with the camp.
Walking safaris, accompanied by an experienced guide, or viewing by vehicle without the disturbance of lots of other vehicles is one of the main attractions of Mwagusi's safari adventure.
