Jongomero Camp

Tented rooms

The spacious tented rooms at Jongomero are constructed of wood with canvas walls, under a large thatched roof. All are raised on wooden platforms overlooking the Ruaha River and well shaded by the native riverine forest. They are very stylish and thoughtfully put together with a natural feel – with high-quality furnishings used throughout.

Inside you will find highly polished wooden floors, and a vast double bed, its frame made from chunky, reclaimed dhow wood that has been beautifully restored without losing its gnarled character. A comfortable leather armchair invites relaxation in the heat of the day. In 2016 Jongomero also introduced new desk fans to help keep you cool during the summer months.

A veranda at the front of each tent is furnished with a day bed and two comfortable chairs. With a passing breeze and shade from the surrounding trees, this is an inviting place to sit and watch the wildlife.

At the back of the tent – through a canvas door which can be rolled up to create an open-plan effect, or let down for increased privacy – is the equally spacious and stylish en-suite bathroom.

Along one side, twin wash basins are set into a large wooden plinth, with a clothes-hanging space opposite. There is a standard flush toilet as well as a big, solar-heated shower. Useful toiletries are provided.
