We had a fantastic 4 days here, it made a perfect contrast to Selous where we had just come from. Ruaha is beautiful with so much contrast in scenery from dry riverbed to forest to lush green areas around the remaining streams. We were made very welcome by Noelle, Molly and all the fantastic staff. Our room was lovely, we watched elephants in the riverbed from the verandah. The food is seriously delicious, loved the apricot fudge as a snack on the morning game drives!
We were very lucky to have Molly as our guide, he is fantastic, his knowledge is astounding but its the way he delivers it with humour and impressions that makes it quite something else. If he ever gets tired of the bush, which I doubt, he would be amazing on TV/nature films. We did a walk with him which I would highly recommend, very memorable.
We loved it here and would love to return in the green season to see how different it can look.
A wonderful place with great staff!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- For anyone seeking a true African wilderness experience, a visit to Ruaha National Park is essential. One of Tanzania's wildest parks, Ruaha can only be described as a true unspoiled natural wilderness. Superbly isolated right in the heart of the Ruaha National Park lies Jongomero on the banks of a seasonal sand river which bears the same name. Blending in beautifully with its surroundings the camp is tucked away among some shady riverine vegetation not far from permanent water therefore attracting a large amount of animals into the camp area. Being the only camp situated in this area of the park ensures unmatched privacy and a true wilderness experience. The camp is made up of 8 stunning suites, spaced out along the Jongomero sandriver. ... more less
