Jongomero Camp
Jongomero Camp is located in the heart of the Ruaha National Park on the banks of a seasonal sand river among some shady riverine vegetation. Accommodation is in 8 large and well-spread tented suites, on raised wooden platforms and under enormous thatched roofs that also encompass a spacious private veranda. All tents are on the edge of the sand river often used by a multitude of different animals to make their way to the river system for water. The camp is not fenced and elephants are daily and nightly visitors to the camp while buffalo come within close proximity. Lion occassionally pass through and once every so often the tracks of a leopard can be seen winding down the main pathway through the camp. The tents are perfectly secure. Activities include game drives with qualified guides in an open 4X4 landrover. There are daily bush walks accompanied by an armed guide and a park ranger. There is also fly-camping - a one or two day expedition on foot through the reserve sleeping in a small fly-camp or satellite camp. Ruaha has over 530 species of bird, a huge population of buffalo, elephant and lion, plus a unique combination of both lesser and greater kudu, roan antelope and African wild dog.
