Fodor's Review

This is the only camp in the southwest corner of Ruaha National Park. If you've come to see animals, but no other trucks or people, then this is your place. The tents, which have furniture that was made from the wood of old dhows, are perched along the banks of the (sometimes dry) Jongomero River—when you're at the lodge's bar, check out the bowl filled with handmade nails that were collected as the boats were disassembled. Take your morning or afternoon tea out on your

veranda—you might catch a glimpse of a few passing animals. The food is excellent, and there is always something packed away for you when you're out on your drives. The pool is a great place to relax and ponder all that you've seen during your day, and the view of the setting sun is incredible. If you're interested, game walks with your own personal armed national parks guard, can be arranged.
