Traveller Reviews

  • Ruaha really embraced us with their family-like atmosphere and the food was simply too delicious! Ruaha served up some great herds of elephants and buffalo. The guides were also wonderful, taking time to explain facts about the animals we saw - really very informative and connective. The walking safaris were a highlight.

  • 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!"
