Nestled in the wilderness of the Ruaha National Park, on the banks of the seasonal Jongomero River at the South-West of Tanzania, Jongomero gives visitors a unique and isolated experience of the African Bush and a prime location for an African safari. The plush accommodation also pulls out all the stops to add to the authentic African charm of this establishment, and guests are spoilt for choice with the eight spacious thatched tented suites on offer. Each suite is set on a wooden platform for optimum views, and boasts a large private veranda and bathroom to boot.
The use of wood and other natural materials give the rooms a raw feeling, while soft linen, large beds, gorgeous furnishings and attention to detail provide optimal comfort. Tents are sited on a row along the seasonal riverbank, where an array of animals might be spotted. Jongomero offers guests opportunities to enjoy up-close and personal encounters with animals, as they may be seen frequenting the surrounds of the unfenced camp, yet the tents provide security. At the large thatched main area, guests can lounge, dine or enjoy a drink at the bar.
Guests can choose from various activities at Jongomero, like exploring the park in guided game drives in canopied 4×4 vehicles and guided walks in the park bringing guests up-close with nature, with skilled and professional guides aiming to give an understanding of the fauna and flora.
Game to be seen in this beautifully rugged park include buffalo, lion, leopard, wild dog, antelope and large amounts of elephant. Hundreds of bird species are indigenous to the park and Jongomero is a paradise for bird watching aficionados with the camp offering bird and photography drives. One may also choose to partake in an adventurous two day walking safari, sleeping in a fly camp or satellite camp.
When not exploring the bush, guests are encouraged to sit back and relax at the pool overlooking the sand river, enjoying a refreshing drink and maybe even spotting animals wandering about the camp surrounds. Jongomero is renowned for its exquisite dining and the friendly staff aims to provide guests with outstanding service.
