What an incredible camp they have at Jongomero!
The staff, the food, the accomodations and beauty!
We felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. At night we could hear lions roaring, hippos grazing, and all the other really cool sounds of the Ruaha.
Kim was our guide and he was top notch with his knowledge of the region, the wildlife, and anything you needed to know about Tanzania. He was incredibly friendly and accomodating and had a great eye as well.
On our safari drives we saw no other vehicles. It felt like it was literally just us out in the lush Ruaha. This has got to be one of the last few gems in Africa to see real WILDlife. Jongomero is a special place.
- 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
