Wings Over The Wild Ltd is the General Sales agent for: Mwagusi Safari Camp. Mwagusi Safari Camp is situated in the less frequently visited Ruaha National, Tanzania. Mwagusi is a well-established camp that was started in 1987 and is an expression of the unwavering love and passion of its owner Chris Fox. Born and raised locally, Chris Fox is notorious for his profound knowledge and experience with the wildlife, people and the land of Ruaha. Mwagusi is a charming bush camp with a unique and naturally-inspired design, built and co-existing in harmony and balance with its environment. It provides comfort with a hint of understated safari elegance whilst providing a true bush experience - sleeping in a canvas tent with distant lions roaring. The camp and its’ immediate surroundings are picturesque – 13 tented “bandas” snaking along the sandy banks of the Mwagusi River each with excellent views. Each spacious canvas tent rests under a cooling thatched roof with en-suite facilities and a verandah with cushioned seating area. Each “banda” is built from local natural materials such as thatching grass, river reeds, stones, drift wood and animal skulls, horns and bones. Solar technology powers interior lighting and heats hot water within each tent. The camp has originated from a “no-frills safari experience” where the wildlife and personally guided experience is paramount. Mwagusi is renowned for its high-calibre of local guides and their in-depth knowledge of the African bush. Local Tanzanians benefit from an in-house guide training programme aimed to provide top-class guides with excellent wildlife and bush knowledge.
