Our stay at Jongomero was the second part of our safari. The terrain is very different to Selous with the nights being cooler. From the moment we were collected by Leonard (our guide for the duration of our stay) it was just perfect. This is a smaller camp to Siwandu with a very different feel. Again all staff were excellent; our waiter Elia taught us some Swahili. Accommodation is spacious and of a high standard. Electric fans are provided in the room. Food excellent and when I was ill the chef gladly made me something different. We were delayed for breakfast one day as an elephant decided to walk through camp - just brilliant. It is the little things at these 2 camps which make it so special. I don't want to say anymore as it would spoil the surprise for future guests. Again you are escorted to and from your tent at night. One of our special memories is having our bush breakfast next to a herd of elephants. We were lucky enough to see Wild Dogs and a Honey Badger. Birding is also good. Thanks to everyone at Jongomero for making our anniversary celebrations just perfect.
- 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
