Southern Circuit Ruaha Jongomero







Welcome






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.


NUMBER OF ROOMS & DESCRIPTION:
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.

RESTAURANTS & BAR:
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.
    

OTHER FACILITIES
& SERVICES:
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.
