With over 54,000 acres of private reserve, the Kwandwe rangers are now sharing a shortened version of their 3-day solo training walk.

  • SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS — up to 3 tents with twin/king beds, full linen, hot water bottles, and private bathrooms with bucket showers (hot water) and eco-toilets.
  • VALID — between May and September (winter is the best as it is drier and cooler - perfect walking weather).

This is by far the best snapshot of all you need to know across our hotels, lodges, jungle discoveries and island escapes. Please save the environment and do not print.


WHAT WE LOVE: Besides the fact that most of our team are beach fanatics and keen scuba divers, we love the fact that Mozambique is still rather undiscovered. Our Portfolio includes two amazing beach escapes: the Bazaruto Archipelago and the northern Quirimbas Archipelago. Visitors who combine a safari with the more commercial beaches of Mauritius have no idea on how much they are missing out. Mozambique is renowned for its relaxed, tropical atmosphere and exceptionally friendly people, but by far its biggest draw cards are its expansive beaches, secluded islands and spectacular marine life. With a history of limited coastal development combined with beautiful beaches and amazing numbers of whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins, turtles, coral fish and reefs. The setting for this experience is hard to beat.


Mwiba Tented Camp (Mila Tented)


Located in Mwiba Wildlife Reserve, a conservation concession dedicated to the balance between wildlife and communities, this area is only available to a handful of guests, facilitating an excellent, uncrowded safari experience within the greater Serengeti eco-system.


MWIBA TENTED CAMP with 6 tented rooms, will be closing 19 December 2019 and will be replaced by MILA TENTED which is being built in close proximity, but a new location, and will open on 20 December 2019 with 5 tented rooms and 1 two-bedroomed family tent. Designed and crafted by Nicolas Negre with interiors by Fabia Bausch, owners of Chem Chem Safaris, the style of Mila Tented has been inspired by the success of Little Chem Chem and the interiors have a splash of purple celebrating one of the Da'toga's traditional colours.

Guests staying at Mwiba Tented Camp (Mila Tented) are allocated a private vehicle and guide per booking and together with undertaking a safari adventure they can visit the Hadzabe, Datoga and Maasai tribes for a glimpse into their culture and traditions as they go about their way of life. Furthermore there is the option of fly camping for those who want a real sense of adventure and a night under the stars.
