To really get away from it all, you need to take yourself to a place that is as secluded as it can possibly get. No crowds, no cars, no shopping centres, just beautiful wide open spaces, large flowing rivers, enormous trees, endless horizons and the deafening silence of the bush along with the magnificence of viewing wildlife such as elephants, hippos, buffalo and more in their natural habitat. Ruaha National Park, Jongomero in Tanzania is just the place. The remote setting of Jongomero, with the nearest camp 70kms away, makes it the ultimate getaway for that recharge you need.
Jongomero is located in the far southern sector of the Ruaha National Park, the largest national park in Tanzania.
Because the park is situated in an area where the eastern and southern sectors meet, it offers a unique spin on the African experience with a bustling array of wild animals such as elephant, giraffe, zebra, lion, leopard and more, plus exquisite indigenous plants and over 560 species of birds making it one of the continent’s top bird watching getaways.
Situated on the banks of the seasonal river, the main area of the Jongomero camp offers a large wooden deck where the bar, lounge and restaurant are situated. The sparkling swimming pool overlooks the river, giving guests the opportunity to cool off while basking in the beauty of the surrounds and often catching a glimpse of the animals as they pass by. Big, comfy couches allow for hours of relaxation and the library offers a host of interesting books on the area for those wanting to brush up on their knowledge.
Jongomero is made up of eight luxurious tented thatched suites, all of which have been raised for safety, each boasting a private deck with views over the river. The enormous, soft beds will ensure the deepest of sleeps.
From daily game drives, to game walks and safari walks which include a few nights of sleeping under the stars, nothing beats the solitude of Jongomero where privacy is of the utmost importance and the stillness of the surrounds take over.
