The Camp

For those seeking an authentic African adventure, a visit to Ruaha National Park is essential. Remembered for the rapids of the Great Ruaha River and its rugged landscape of undulating hills, rocky outcrops, and a horizon studded with the imposing silhouettes of the iconic baobab; no other park in Tanzania epitomises the definition of "wild Africa" quite like Ruaha.

Blending in beautifully with its surroundings, Jongomero Camp is tucked below a dappled riverine canopy on the banks of the Jongomero sand river, a natural pathway for animals in search of water. Positioned on one of the meanders with sweeping views of the bank beyond lies the camp bar, lounge and restaurant; an open wooden terrace shaded by a high thatched roof and filled with sumptuous sofas and striking furniture made of reclaimed dhow wood. It is an inviting spot to relax with a cup of tea while leafing through one of the camp library’s reference books or socialize with camp managers and fellow guests around the bar with an ice cold drink in hand. Alternatively, on warm days, laze around the pool and enjoy the sights and sounds of being so close to nature.

The Tents

Jongomero is comprised of just eight large and well-appointed tented suites, built on raised wooden platforms, under enormous thatched roofs that also encompass a spacious private veranda which overlooks the riverbed. Fine linens and warming quilts in an eight-foot wide dhow wood emperor bed offer a sleep like no other accompanied by the hum of Africa's night. Wake up to the morning tea tray and animals ambling past your mosquito net windows. The quintessence of luxury in the wilds.

The Activities

Jongomero is an extremely seclude camp which results in an amazingly exclusive game viewing experiences. Morning and evening game drives allow you to cover the most ground in search of the big five as well as the array of other wonderful Africa wildlife including the rarely seen nocturnal wildlife during the evening drives back to camp. Walking safaris offer a unique opportunity to get a feel for Africa under and slow down to learn about the plants and insects, as well as the possibility of an up close in counter with the larger game.
