Each of the large tented suites at Jongomero are built on a raised wooden platform, with a spacious veranda which overlooks the Jongomero sand riverbed. Whilst at Jongomero, you can enjoy the exclusivity of game drives with no other vehicles around, venture on a game walk, fly camp for a few nights away from the lodge, or relax by the poolside.

DAY 4,5&6Selous, Siwandu

Located in one of the best areas in Selous National Reserve, on the shores of Lake Nzeraka, Siwandu Lodge has amazing views of the reserve and a high wildlife population compared to other places in the reserve. The lodge is divided into two camps each with its own bar and dining area, swimming pool, hosts, guides, vehicle and jetty for boat safaris, creating a feeling of seclusion in this vast wilderness. All tents have king size beds, overhead fans, en-suite bathrooms with solar heated water. The octagonal tents are designed for constant airflow and all have a wooden decked veranda where you can sit and enjoy the sunrise with a hot cup of tea or sundowners as the sun sets in the horizon.
