Located along the banks of the seasonal Jongomero River in the south west of Ruaha National Park, southern Tanzania, Jongomero Camp blends in beautifully with its surroundings and is perfectly placed for spectacular animal viewing.

The camp features a bar, lounge, restaurant, pool and an open wooden terrace shaded by a high thatched roof and filled with comfortable sofas and striking furniture made of reclaimed dhow wood. The camp’s eight tented-rooms are built on raised wooden platforms and housed under thatched roofs. Each has it’s own bathroom and a spacious private veranda overlooking the riverbed.

This luxury, secluded camp is nestled in the pure, unadulterated wilderness of the Ruaha National Park and offers two safari activities per day, with game walks, leaving at dawn and then again in the afternoon. These safaris give you the opportunity to see upwards of 560 species of birds, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, impala, eland, hippo, crocodile, lion, leopard, sable and roan antelope, dikdik, greater and lesser kudus, Grants gazelle, honey badgers and wild dog.
