Why we Love Muzimu Tented Camp

The emphasis is on the guest, the ornithologists, conservationists, and true nature spirits who seek out an authentic wilderness experience because they want to.

Walking trails to meet real animals in their natural habitats and to take note of all the tiny critters scurrying along in the grass, trees, soil and wetlands.

Rare samango monkeys play in the rain forests around the spectacular Murombodzi waterfall, a stunning 100m-high drop rewarded with a refreshing swim in the pool below.

A vital contribution to the ecotourism vision of Gorongosa National Park and the sustainable tourism initiatives so important to Mozambique’s nature conservation.

Appreciate the solitude, the spiritual silences and the wildlife sanctuary at your fingertips - rejuvenation of soul and mind.

Muzimu Gorongosa, Safari’s on Another Dimension

An authentic nature experience awaits all visitors to Muzimu Tented Camp deep in the wilds of Gorongosa National Park. Special rates apply for special guests who seek out the true safari rewards of wildlife sightings, nature walks, bush breakfasts and sundowners, biodiversity education and more. Muzimu means “Guardian Spirit”, discovered on bush walks in the extensive grasslands, the mixed woodlands, floodplains and rainforests on Mount Gorongosa. 

Elegance personified, simplicity realised, Muzimu embraces the environment unobtrusively and shyly. Disguised in the curve of the Mussicadzi River that finally leads to Lake Urema down in Africa’s Rift Valley, this brand-new remote bush lodge comprises six raised luxury canvas tents with private timber decks to make the most of an awe-inspiring landscape.  Designed in true East African style, each secluded tented suite offers king size beds, ensuite bathrooms and quality linens, mosquito screens, tea and coffee stations and fans – plus tons of serenity and spiritual renewal.

Enjoy exceptional personalised activities led by professional guides specifically focused on walking to absorb all things natural and real. The perfect setting, charming service, mouth-watering menu and attention to detail enhance a safari experience in the nearly 4 000 square km Gorongosa.  Only accessible from Mid-March through to December as remote seasonal camps that aim to have as little impact on the environment as possible.
