Mwagusi Safari Camp is situated in Ruaha National Park, Tanzania’s largest national park, situated in the southern circuit of Tanzania. This well-established camp was started in 1987 and is an expression of the unwavering love and passion of its owner Chris Fox for the Tanzanian bush, its wildlife and its people.

Chris Fox - Owner and Manager

Chris Fox, owner and manager, was born in Tanzania and is passionate about Africa, the park and wildlife. His knowledge of Ruaha extends back to long holidays spent camping in this area before it even became a National Park, and whose family helped to ensure that the land was gazetted and fully protected in 1964.

Staff Training

All staff is cross-trained in various trades awarding them with a diverse and varied skill set. A permanent camp-employed instructor trains guides through an intensive, ongoing bush guiding programme. Guests can also help the local communities by offering support and donations to the Foxes Community and Wildlife Conservation Trust.

Ruaha National Park

Ruaha National Park has been dubbed the undiscovered gem of Tanzania and is often called “Tanzania’s best kept secret”. Situated far off the beaten track, away from crazy camera clicking crowds this rough tract of wilderness pulsates the real energy of an Africa long-forgotten.


Highly skilled and well-trained guides offer guests the opportunity to share in their passion for the African bush and benefit from their years of experience. With specially adapted, open-sided 4WD vehicles, guests are afforded the very best game viewing experience that Ruaha has to offer.
