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!

Luxury Tent

The eight large, tented suites are luxuriously appointed and spread out along the edge of the Sand River, offering beautiful views of the surroundings. The thatched tents are built on raised wooden platforms that create private verandas from where you can enjoy the views. Enjoy staying in comfortably appointed rooms that offer a private haven in the wild.


The bar area overlooks the Sand River and offers beautiful views of the surroundings, creating a comfortable place to relax after an exciting day while you take in the scenery.

The natural swimming pool in the river is a hippo-free spot where you can cool down and perhaps even see a few animals doing the same down the river.


The large, open-sided dining tent offers a relaxed place in which to enjoy a combination of table d’hôte and elegant buffets, incorporating international cuisine as well as local East Africa flavours. Alfresco dinners under the stars, campfire cooking and classic safari picnics offer memorable and unique dining experiences.

Carol Schluter

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 - reall y 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.
