JONGOMERO

Jongomero Camp is set under shady acacia trees on the banks of the seasonal Jongomero River in the remote south - western sector of Ruaha National Park. Ruaha is one of Tanzania's wildest parks and can be described as a true unspoilt natural wilderness. Ruaha holds one of the greatest populations of elephant in any African park, buffalo gather in large herds as well as giraffe, zebra, impala, eland, hippo, crocodile, lion and leopard. The rarer, less-seen creatures can also be found including sable and roan antelope, dikdik, greater and lesser kudus, Grants gazelle, honey badgers and is second only to the Selous Game Reserve for the largest population of wild dog in Tanzania.

THE CAMP
All tents are situated along the edge of the sand river. There are 8 large tented suites, all built on raised wooden platforms and under enormous thatched roofs giving you a private veranda. All tents are situated along the edge of the sand river which is a hub of activity with the animals. The main dining and living areas offer a view of the African bush. The swimming pool is perfect for relaxing in between activities.

ACTIVITIES
Jongomero is secluded from the well worn safari trail - it's 70km to the nearest camp. Therefore the game drives, in customised open-sided 4x4 safari vehicles, allow you to enjoy an exclusive game viewing experience. Game Walks are available to guests aged 16 or over, and are probably the most fascinating way to truly experience the wonders of Ruaha - being on foot is a humbling experience in this vast, untouched land. From late June, when the bush is less thick, until the beginning of the rains in early December, the walks offer guests an education into the lives of the smaller animals as well as the birdlife, insects, flora and fauna. One or two night adventure walking safaris (fly-camping) are available mid-August to mid-November.
