Under the magnificent shade trees, on the banks of a seasonal river in the remote southern sector of the Ruaha National Park, Jongomero is gloriously isolated. Far from the madding crowds, this secluded idyll offers a chance to discover true unadulterated wilderness.
Blending in beautifully with its surroundings, the camp is tucked below a dappled riverine canopy on the banks of the Jongomero sand river, a natural pathway for animals in search of water.
Positioned on one of the meanders with sweeping views of the bank beyond lies the camp bar, lounge and restaurant; an open wooden terrace shaded by a high thatched roof and filled with sumptuous sofas and striking furniture made of reclaimed dhow wood. It is an inviting spot to relax with a cup of tea while leafing through one of the camp library’s reference books or socialise with camp managers and fellow guests around the bar with an ice cold drink in hand. Alternatively, on warm days, laze around the pool and enjoy the sights and sounds of being so close to nature.
Afternoon bird and photography drives on offer, as Ruaha is one of the great birding paradises of Africa, with some 530 species being recorded.
