We had a wonderful stay at Jongomera after visiting Siwandu in Selous. This lodge was equally excellent and the food was magnificent. Our cabin overlooked the river bed, but it was dry at this time of the year, with kudu walking past our window. Dining was out of doors, on terraces or in the river bed. We had asked for a guide expert in birds as well as animal and Theo was brilliant. He found over 100 bird species for us to study in only four days, as well as many animals. We had our sundowners overlooking the main river, which had plenty of water with many birds and also elephants in view. A magical experience

Room Tip: All cabins were the same, I believe

I took a long weekend and traveled to Ruaha National Park with friends - one of the gems of the southern circuit. We were welcomed by the Jongomero family in a beautiful, cozy, and scenic camp. While we did not see many of the animals that Ruaha is famous for due to the start of the rainy season, we saw plenty (!!!) - giraffes, zebras, bat eared fox, impalas, etc., etc., etc. - in a beautiful park dotted with magnificent baobab trees.

Hospitality and service provided by the warm and energetic Jongomero family were superb, as was the food served!!!

Our stay in Jongomero followed a wonderful time in Selous. The Ruaha is very different - especially at this time of the year (February) being much greener and dense. The camp and accommodation was exceptional, the welcome very friendly and the food amazing. You should be aware that you are very far from anywhere else in the reserve so it's very quiet and peaceful. As we visited at the start of the rainy season, we saw fewer animals then you could at other times of the year due in part to the density of the bush. I would imagine to get the most of the reserve, the dry season would be better. Our guide, Leonard was very helpful and we did see lions, elephants, buffalo, dogs and a variety of birds.

Room Tip: All the tents are amazing and very secluded with views of the Jongomero river.

We had a fantastic four nights stay in the Jongomero tented camp in Ruaha National Park over Christmas 2017. We enjoyed the high standard of accommodation, super friendly service by the hotel staff and management, and of course the absolutely delicious food. The tents are very spacious and have a lovely view on the river.

The main focus of our stay was on the game drives with lots of animal and wildlife photography and videography. We started our mornings as early as possible and left the camp around 6:30. At 9:00 tea and a variety of fruits and snacks were offered from our excellent guide Christian in the bush. We came back to the camp towards 11:00 for lunch and some rest. Afternoon game drives started around 16:00 after tea and cake.
The area is famous for the stunning landscape at the riverside.

We have encountered a huge variety of animals on land, in water and in the air. Because of the small rainy season the landscape is green and presents an awesome backdrop for stunning animal photos and videos.

We can highly recommend the Jongomero tented camp for an unforgettable Ruaha experience and would like to thank the Jongomero team for giving us such a great time.
