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 season acceptable; the food is very good: probably one of the best we had in Africa. With the guide Theophile, we spent very nice moments along the river Ruaha to watch the birds - Birdlife is very well-diversified here at he beginning of the green season. The manager Chris is guiding walking safaris. We spent with him a very nice morning to discover tracks of the animals and an herd of elephants on the way ! The tsetse flies are very agressive and a notable nuisance in some places; the density of mammals is lower than in other places as well. Anyway, Jongomero is an outstanding camp and offers a good balance between outdoor activities and relaxing time in this stunning location !
- 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
