Jongomero is a small luxury tented camp in the remote and little visited Ruaha National Park, in Tanzania. With just eight tented suites, Jongomero is perfect for those seeking the true African wilderness experience without compromising on comfort. Jongomero accepts children from six years old but has a limit of two children (aged 6-11) in camp at any one time. The on-site swimming pool provides a refreshing break in the heat of the day.
Accommodation and Meals
Accommodation at Jongomero Camp comprises eight large and well-appointed tented suites, all built on raised wooden platforms and under enormous thatched roofs that also encompass a spacious private veranda. The rooms contain vast king size beds, a writing desk, fan, dressing room and en-suite shower room. All tents are spread out, situated on the edge of the Jongomero sand river which is often used by a multitude of different animals to make their way to the river system for water. Jongomero Camp itself is not fenced and animals are free to pass through as they please. Elephants are daily and nightly visitors to the camp, vast herds of buffalo come within close proximity to the camp itself. Lion occasionally pass through and once every so often the tracks of a leopard can be seen winding down the main pathway as they make their way through the camp. The tents at Jongomero Camp are perfectly secure and guests are frequently subjected to the wonderful feeling of huddling in a tent silently, trying to guess the identity of the enormous pachyderm which may wander by in the continuous quest for herbage.
The dining and living areas at Jongomero Camp are both original and very comfortable, offering a great vantage point from which to take in the sights and sounds of the African bush surrounding the camp.
