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 reviewers have described the excellent accommodation, dining etc. --with which we totally agree. For us the highlight was the game walk with Chris the camp manager. He has a long experienced career and is very knowledgeable which became apparent when he heard tick birds and suspected a hippo, or buffalo in the bush. Sure enough there was an unsuspecting hippo ahead and he took swift precautionary measures to avoid an ugly situation. Kim our guide on the game drives was also excellent . We would love to return some day.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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 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. ... more less
