After spending 3 nights in Selous Impala Camp we came to Jongomero. At first disappointed by having to stay on the roads, we were pleasantly surprised by the variety of wildlife we encountered thanks to our wonderful guide Kimaro. He took the greatest pleasure in pointing out the smallest bird or largest animal with equal enthusiasm. By the time we had finished our stay we had encountered a pride of ten lions, elephant dust baths, baboons frolicking, and too many more sights to mention. My husband had special dietary needs which were met with aplomb and far above our expectations.
- 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
