General Information

With just 11 twin or double bedded tents, all with en-suite out door facilities, Mdonya Old River is a small camp offering a personal service designed to each clients’ needs. The tents are simple yet comfortable, furnished with twin or double beds veiled by mosquito net with fairly large verandas where clients can relax and observe wildlife as it rambles down the old river bed.

Located right at the centre of a wilderness area, the dining and lounge tents are under sycamore fig trees overlooking the dry riverbed, sitting in the camp with a book and a pair of binoculars may be quite rewarding.

As the sun sets, the camp is gently lit up by a host of candles and hurricane lamps that give the soft furnishings and setting a true, old world charm which lulls you to sleep with the sounds of the bush around you.

Mdonya excels at creating a camp that fits into the surrounding, offering a truly authentic safari product that is one of the best game experiences in the whole country! Even though the camp may be somewhat basic, Mdonya aims to give guests the true bush experience. The location certainly helps, with an abundance of lion, buffalo and elephant in the surrounding area, many intent on using the camps as their thorough pass.
