Once described by author John Hemingway as a "boy's fantasy of independence," Mwagusi Safari Lodge explores the traditional themes of the safari experience in its features. Its prime location on the Mwagusi Sand River provides an exciting experience for the true explorer at heart.

Property Details

Nestled into a bank of the Mwagusi Sand River, this exclusive tented camp overlooks a watering hole in the riverbed. Witnessing over 2,000 buffalo flooding the riverbed below the tents and dining banda is not an uncommon sight.

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 and a number of traditional hurricane lamps provide illumination. 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 a flush toilet and hot shower. The best of game viewing can be experienced from the seclusion of the veranda.

There will be plenty of opportunity for game drives and walks throughout the area, in specially adapted open-sided four-wheel-drive vehicles, each with comfortable seats and high shade awning to enable one to stand and still be in the shade while game viewing. Each vehicle is equipped with reference books and bean bags for photography, medical kits and all the necessities for a day in the bush, including radios for communication with the camp.

Walking safaris, accompanied by an experienced guide, or viewing by vehicle without the disturbance of several others is one of the main attractions of Mwagusi’s safari adventure.
