JONGOMERO CAMP

Location: Located on the banks of the Jongomero River (seasonal) in the remote South Western part of Ruaha National Park.  Jongomero Camp is the furthest west of any of the camps in Ruaha National
Park. It lies on the Jongomero Sand River a short distance away from the confluence with the Great Ruaha River and some 70 km from Msembe headquarters. The camp has it’s own airstrip which is a short flight (15 minutes) further on from the main Ruaha strip, so although it’s a significant distance from all other camps by road it’s easily accessible by air from Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar.

Accommodation: Jongomero Camp comprises of 8 large luxurious tents on raised wooden platforms offering double, twin and single accommodation. Other features include bedside tables and bedside lights; bathroom area with large shower, contained in the tent; solar heated running hot water; spacious private verandah; 24 hours electricity.

Facilities: The public area including bar and restaurant, is beautifully located in the deep shade of an ancient riverine tree with an uninterrupted view of the Jongomero River and bush beyond.

Game viewing at Jongomero normally takes the whole day, game drives with picnics to get you to the further reaches of the park. You probably have to work a little harder than you would say at Mwagusi to find the game, but this is partly because game here has yet to get fully used to people.The area in the immediate vicinity has some good game, particularly along the sand river and the main Ruaha River. Walks can be arranged from Jongomero, accompanied by a park ranger.
