Set deep in the bush of Ruaha National Park, Kwihala Camp offers guests an intimate and exclusive safari experience within the largest National Park in Tanzania. 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 very one is after at a very reasonable price point.
Highlights of a safari here include; lions, known for hunting giraffes, buffalo and even elephants, walking safaris and night drives and of course, finishing the day off with a glass of wine in hand sitting next to a roaring fire.
Kwihala comes highly recommended by us here at Uyaphi.com.
The Ruaha National Park is one of Africa's best-kept secrets and a must-visit for any wildlife enthusiast. This expansive park is home to elephants, lions, leopards, cheetahs, and over 500 other species of animals. With so much to see and do, it's no wonder that our selection of Ruaha lodges is so popular!

Kwihala is designed in homage to those old expedition camps of yesteryear with a tented lounge and indoor dining area; this is the social heart of the camp. It is here that you gather in the morning and afternoons just before game drives, or simply sit back a read a book from the small library.
The outdoor area in front of the tented lounge is where you sit under a blanket of African stars around a fire sharing stories about the day's activities.
WiFi is available through the tented lounge and indoor dining area.
