Set on the banks of the seasonal Mwagusi River, Mwagusi Camp is relatively smart and comfortable, yet rustic in feel. It has been operating in Ruaha National Park since the 1990s. As a result, the game drawn to the river and in the surrounding area is well habituated. The camp's owner and occasional host is the charismatic Chris Fox who was born in Tanzania and is passionate about Africa, the park and wildlife.

Our view of Mwagusi Safari Camp

We can see why Mwagusi continues to be popular. Judging by our last visit, in 2016, it is still one of Ruaha's best camps. Despite being a little quirky, it feels both homely and welcoming and is certainly the antitheses of a lodge created by professional architects and designers. Mwagusi's service is good and the guiding very competent, resulting in a fantastic game-viewing experience. Mwagusi is not expensive compared with Tanzania's other top camps, but it does cost a little more than some of the alternatives in Ruaha. We think that it's worth it.
