Jongomero Camp A splendid East African camp fringed by shady acacia trees on the banks of the Jongomero Sand River

The spirit of Jongomero Camp

Jongomero Camp, a classic luxury tented camp, is situated along the flourishing banks of the seasonal Jongomero Sand River in the immaculate wilderness of Ruaha National Park. Eight, spacious thatched tents are perched on raised wooden platforms, and are beautifully appointed to reflect the romance of an East African safari. Each tent features a lovely ensuite bathroom and a private veranda.

In between game viewing adventures, while away the hours on the camp’s main wooden terrace, furnished with sumptuous couches and striking furniture made from re-purposed wood. Alternatively, take a refreshing dip in the sparkling swimming pool or grab your favourite beverage from the convivial bar. Dining is an adventure here — guests can take their pick from table d’hôte dinners, elegant buffets, al fresco dining under the stars, campfire cooking and safari picnics. Safari adventures abound in the Ruaha National Park. The camp offers fantastic game drives, game walks and, for the more adventurous, an interpretive walking safari (fly-camping).
