Spend a night under the stars in Ruaha National Park
The largest of Tanzania’s state-administrated national parks, Ruaha is home to the Great Ruaha River rapids, imposing baobab trees, and one of the greatest populations of elephants of any African park. It has very few lodges and therefore very few tourists. It is also wilder than its close neighbor, Selous, and offers a truly authentic safari experience. Night driving is not permitted, nor are walking safaris, generally, due to the large number of elephants here. However, hidden away in the remote southern area of the park on the Jongomero River, the Jongomero Camp is both fantastically luxurious, and one with its surroundings. It is possibly the best camp in the whole of Tanzania, and its guiding is second to none. In addition to the breathtaking campsite, it offers unique fly camping trips for the adventurous traveler to spend the night under the stars.
