    This camp was the eight in our month long safari. I guess it was "Save the best to last " From the moment we arrived, we felt a different more intimate feeling in this remote camp in Ruaha compared to the northern Tanzanian circuit. Other...More

    Please do return soon! We are delighted you saved the best for last - as you say the southern circuit has a very different feeling from the north - more remote, less well-travelled path and more intimate - karibu tena! SSC

    We spent three nights in the Jongomero camp during November. This place is located in one of the remotest place of Ruaha. The huge tents are very well equipped; a woody and palm roof helps to keep the very hot temperatures of the late dry...More

    We have visited Africa several times on safari and this camp is certainly one of the best we have stayed in. Landing at the airstrip in October the area looks unpromising – a sea of dried up bushes. In fact the local landscape is fantastic,...More

    Jongomero was everything you would want in a camp. Animals surround the tents night and day. The staff are all very friendly and efficient. There were so many elephants around the camp, and others pointed out to us in the evenings. The guides are excellent...More
