Jongomero, Ruaha National Park

Standing on the banks of the seasonal Jongomero Sand River, the Jongomero camp is a remote, shaded spot at the heart of one of East Africa’s most revered – and little visited – game parks. The Ruaha National Park is an awe-inspiring collection of beautiful landscapes, from riverine valleys to rugged rocky outcrops, from iconic baobab forests to rolling plains and hillsides. And it is here that you’ll find some of East Africa’s most diverse animals; from lion to leopard, elephant to hippo, zebra to impala, dikdik to crocodile, honey badgers to gazelle – plus upwards of 560 recorded species of indigenous and migratory birds; a complete treat for confirmed twitchers.

Reasons enough to make sure that Jongomero is one of the destinations on the itinerary of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Tanzania.
