For starters this is not our first safari. We chose Ruaha and Jongomero because it is remote and we wanted that alone in Africa experience on game drives. Jongomero delivers, hills, forests, heavy bush and father afield grassland. This camp is small beautifully decorated and...More

Thank you for you review - Ruaha is often considered a destination for the safari connoisseur due to the spectacular number of birds but first timers also will enjoy the stunning scenery, remote and unique game experiences and as you can read in TA reviews...More

The best things about Jongomero were Chris and Sam (the managers) and the "yum yum" food we were served with each day :) The individual lodgings were very well presented and kept, although we would have been grateful for a ceiling or standing fan for...More

Thank you so much for your review and the taking the time to post. We have installed fans in all our tents as the hot season now is getting hotter and we want to ensure all our guests are comfortable during their stay. Sorry our...More

We spent three nights in this camp and I cannot say enough good things about the entire experience. The warmth of the staff, the excellence of the food and the great surroundings. Theo our guide was phenomenal, we learned so much. Even though the bush...More

Thank you so much for your review and your recommendation in combining all three of our camps - as an itinerary they offer wonderful contrasting and varied experiences as well as great value for money! Karibu tena SSC

This is what you get when you combine an eco-friendly lodge with excellent service and top notch location! Jongomero has really done it right...from the initial greeting and orientation, to the rooms themselves (creature comforts in the middle of the Tanzanian bush), to the food...More

Wonderful review - thank you so much! And we are delighted you enjoyed the balance we offer at Jongo! Karibu tena Kenyaboy SSC

This camp was the eight in our month long safari. I guess it was "Save the best to last " From the moment we arrived, we felt a different more intimate feeling in this remote camp in Ruaha compared to the northern Tanzanian circuit. Other...More

Response from Lyndsey F, Public Relations Manager at JongomeroResponded February 23, 2016

Please do return soon! We are delighted you saved the best for last - as you say the southern circuit has a very different feeling from the north - more remote, less well-travelled path and more intimate - karibu tena! SSC

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

Hi k9todd January is not as cold in Ruaha as the beginning of the season so perhaps pack a couple of fleeces or jumpers and a waterproof. There is a suggested packing list along with seasonal information on the website if... More
