Under the magnificent shade trees, on the banks of the Jongomero sand river lies the beautiful Jongomero camp. This hidden gem is tucked away in a remote corner of the Ruaha National Park. Here you will get a chance to experience Africa’s best kept secret.

Jongomero is positioned on the banks of a dry riverbed, this is a seasonal river and occasionally starts to flow during the heavy rains. A natural pathway for animals in search of water, the camp is the most splendid spot to experience the region’s extraordinary diversity of animals, birds and plants. Before setting off on your first activity, spend some time relaxing at the swimming pool. Set in an elevated position overlooking the riverbed this is the perfect spot to enjoy some game viewing as animals often stroll past.
During your game viewing experience explore Ruaha’s incredible and diverse landscape. The Ruaha is home to the iconic giant baobab trees. The Park boasts an incredible diversity of wildlife such as elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, impala, eland, hippo, crocodile, lion and leopard.
