Jongomero Camp | Tanzania Safari

Jongomero is an absolutely exceptional safari camp.  It is one of our favourites in the whole of Tanzania, which is not a compliment we hand out lightly.  It is the most luxurious camp in the park as well as offering fantastic service, the most remote location and guiding so good it borders on genius.  Jongomero really is a firm favourite and one we highly recommend.

Jongomero Camp - The Facts 

Jongomero is located in the south-east of the Ruaha National Park.  It is the only camp in the vicinity which gives you complete seclusion and a guarantee of a Ruaha Safari trip that will offer you exclusive game viewing.  For this reason the lodge has its own air strip that connects to Arusha, the Selous and Dar es Salaam.
The main guest area is an impressive locally crafted structure with a giant ‘makuti’ roof. It's nestled amongst the trees on the banks of the Jogomero River which is dry river bed most of the year round.  It is comfortable and spacious; with the restaurant area based slightly further down, overlooking the seasonal river.
The path leading to the tents takes you alongside the ‘Hippo friendly’ swimming pool (unwelcome night-time visitors are able to walk out the pool rather than be dug out!).  The tents are so spacious and well furnished that it’s hard not to want to move in on a permanent basis!  The veranda looks out on to the river bed and is an excellent place to sit and soak up the atmosphere whilst watching the birds and other wildlife.
Altogether Jongomero is a brilliant camp that we think is as good a safari camp as you can get.  It is right up there with the best Tanzania safari holiday destinations on offer....

Jongomero Camp - Reviews

Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our holiday. Everything worked perfectly and all three Selous properties were excellent and provided great diversity. Jongomero was probably our favourite due to its remoteness and Molly and Noelle but we loved Selous and Ras Kutani as well. The trip was a perfect length, a day more or less at any of the places would not have been as good!
I couldn’t think of a better camp than Jongomero to remember as our last stop.
