Kwihala Camp: The Details

Kwihala, positioned in the wildlife rich Ruaha National Park, is simple and comfortable, designed in homage to the old expedition camps. The tented lounge and dining room is the social heart of the camp, where you’ll enjoy meals with fellow guests and chill out in the afternoon. After sunset, sit around the campfire to share safari stories over a couple of G&Ts. 

All meals are prepared in camp, from fresh bread and cakes to salads and sorbets. If you’d like to extend your morning game drive, the camp chefs can pack a picnic breakfast for you to enjoy in the bush. Alternatively, have a cooked brunch back at camp after your morning game drive! Lunch is a light buffet and dinner is a three-course meal served communally. In the dry season, enjoy dinner in the sandy Mwagusi riverbed, where elephants sometimes stroll past. In the green months, eat alongside the flowing river. In the rainy season, meals are served undercover.
