The Ruaha offers plentiful wildlife and birdlife sightings, all within an environment that is remote and wild, with very few other visitors to bump into.
Kwihala is set amongst towering baobabs and dense forests and offers up that exclusive safari experience that everyone is after at a very reasonable price point.
