GUIDE ON MDONYA OLD RIVER CAMP IN TANZANIA
Mdonya Old River Camp in Ruaha National Park, Tanzania, is a quiet and peaceful setting for a historically authentic safari vacation in Africa. A small, intimate tented “Adventure Camps Of Tanzania” base set in acacia and fig woodland; it is frequented by numerous wild animals, including ponderous elephants, some with immense ivory tusks, head-in-the-air giraffes, confusingly striped zebra, fragile dik-diks, stately kudu, elegant impala, bulky buffaloes, predatorous lions, watchful leopards and many more. Ruaha National Park consists of over 20,000 square kilometers of largely uncharted wilderness which is accessible to visitors looking for an offbeat experience. Since its expansion in 2008, it is now the largest national park, (as opposed to a game reserve) in Tanzania. Unlike a game reserve, it has a strict policy of confining visitors to a wide-ranging network of roads, but since the area is challenging to access and largely undiscovered, this pristine park still often allows AfricanMecca guests on their authentic safari in Tanzania to feel alone in a primeval world. The Ruaha Park is famed for its birdlife with over 570 species recorded to date, not to mention a large number of lion prides and many other rare and endangered mammals to see on a trip in Ruaha. From Dar es Salaam, a flight of two hours deposits you at Msembe Airstrip where you will be met by jeep by your safari guide and taken a further one to two-hour introductory game drive through many varied landscapes, across the Great Ruaha River to the Mdonya Sand River at the foot of the imposing Ruaha Escarpment.

Ruaha was everything we had hoped it would be. We couldn't imagine a trip there without visiting Ngorongoro Crater and a combination of Ruaha and Selous. Our thanks to the AfricanMecca team and Raza for a most exceptional trip!

AfricanMecca's professionalism and care understands that what distinguishes Africa is its authenticity, the land, people and wildlife who do not share our world of fashion and fanfare that distinguish so many travel companies today.
