Getting to Mdonya Old River Camp in Ruaha

Mdonya Old River Camp lies on the curve of a sand river frequently visited by African wildlife. This western part of the Ruaha National Park in Tanzania is about about 2 hours from the Msembe airstrip.

The area around this Tanzania lodge in Ruaha National Park is characterized by monolithic granite boulders dating from the formation of the Great Rift Valley. Visit the Mdonya Falls or enjoy Baobab valleys and sand rivers fringed with palm trees. Mdonya Old River Camp offers a fascinating mosaic of ecosystems, from the river pools to the dry open savannah in Tanzania.

There are scheduled flights of light aircraft to Msembe airstrip, where guests are picked up and driven back to the Tanzania lodge in Ruaha National Park by a guide and driver. Clients who wish to drive themselves in their own vehicles can reach Mdonya in Ruaha National Park, Tanzania, from Dar es Salaam via Morogoro, Mikumi and Iringa, where they turn northwards.

The journey should take about 9-10 hours, and a further hour or more from the Ruaha National Park gates to Mdonya Old River Camp. This Tanzania safari camp is in a beautiful sand river area, close to the Mdonya Falls, where a cool spring gushes through huge granite boulders, attracting African wildlife in the Ruaha National Park.
