A wonderful camp far away from it all- this is the sister camp to Selous safari camp and just as there, the manager (Emil) guide (Modest) and all the staff could not have done more to ensure we had a great stay. We also met...More

Jongomero is a wonderful camp. Flawless services, tasty food and friendly staff. If, however, you are interested in seeing many animals and see them in action, Ruaha is not the place to go. (I went to Ruaha after having visited Lake Manyara, Norongoro, Serengeti and...More

About
Description
For anyone seeking a true African wilderness experience, a visit to Ruaha National Park is essential. One of Tanzania's wildest parks, Ruaha can only be described as a true unspoiled natural More wilderness. Superbly isolated right in the heart of the Ruaha National Park lies Jongomero on the banks of a seasonal sand river which bears the same name. Blending in beautifully with its surroundings the camp is tucked away among some shady riverine vegetation not far from permanent water therefore attracting a large amount of animals into the camp area. Being the only camp situated in this area of the park ensures unmatched privacy and a true wilderness experience. The camp is made up of 8 stunning suites, spaced out along the Jongomero sandriver.

Apologies for the delayed response. You will likely need a guide to take you for game drive (not sure that we are allowed to be on our own - for safety reasons as well). I suggest you contact the camp where you plan to... More
