Covering a conservation area of 10,300 square kilometres in the south-west of the country, Ruaha sprawls within and along the Great Rift Valley, covering a unique transition zone where the Eastern and Southern species of both fauna and flora meet against a dramatic topographical backdrop. This is also one of the few Tanzanian parks where sightings of the rarer antelope, such as the Sable, the Roan and both Lesser & Greater Kudu, are a probability rather than a possibility. The proliferation of plains game in the park also ensures that the larger predators - leopard and large prides of lion - are unusually active. The bird life, too, is unparalleled with some 530 species recorded.
Amidst this magnificent setting is Jongomero Camp, a classic luxury tented camp in Africa set under shady acacia trees on the banks of the Jongomero Sand River in the remote south-western sector of Ruaha. Being the only Camp situated in this area of the Park ensures unmatched privacy.
at Jongomero comprises of 8 extravagantly spacious ensuite tents on raised
platforms with a large private veranda, all under thatch roof. The dining
and living areas are both original and very comfortable offering a great
vantage to take in the sights and sounds of the African bush that
surrounds the Camp, as does the natural rock pool for those hot days.
