Traveller Reviews

  • We fell in love with Jongomero in Ruaha. The staff obviously worked well together and felt a sense of pride and belonging. It was absolutely spotless and every job was done with care. Each lunch and evening we felt that we had arrived "home" again, with stimulating conversation, checking in on what happened in camp, sharing what we did.

"I fell in love with Jongomero! A large part of that was due to the philosophy and skill of our guide. The surprize sundowners next to the river were the highlight of the stay!"
