Kwihala is an intimate, six tented camp set close to the Mwagusi Sand River in a valley rich with game. Kwihala holds true to Asilia’s most important values; excellent guiding, exceptional game viewing and leaving a light footprint on the environment, so is the perfect addition to the Asilia portfolio.
Ruaha National Park is Tanzania’s undiscovered safari gem. Although it is the country’s largest national park it is probably its least known, which makes a safari here a wonderfully exclusive experience where other vehicles will be a rare sighting. Predators on the other hand will not. Ruaha is home to over 10% of the world’s lion population, the world’s 3rd largest population of wild dog and home to one of the few sustainable populations of cheetah left in East Africa. Leopard and hyena are also regular sightings, as well as some of the rarer antelope; notably roan and sable. Ruaha is also a very scenically beautiful place to explore with the majestic baobab tree dotting the sky line.
Kwihala Camp is set deep in the bush on a hillside with stunning views, far away from other camps so as to remain undisturbed. The guest tents are furnished in an understated manner, but are spacious and comfortable with an en-suite bathroom with flush toilet. All the creature comforts are here though there are reminders everywhere that you are in the bush; be it a traditional safari bucket shower or the sound of hyenas calling after dark.
Guests will explore Ruaha with some of the best guides in the business. Game drives, walking safaris and night drives will reveal the beauty of this national park and the diverse range of creatures that call it home.
Rates at Kwihala Camp start at US$ 350 per person per night for full board accommodation and all activities, but excluding national park fees.
