Jongomero is set under shady acacia trees on the banks of the seasonal Jongomero River in the remote south-western sector of Ruaha National Park. 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. Due to its' distance from any major city, very few tourists visit the park each year but those who do are treated to the unsurpassable wilderness and complete isolation. The landscape is rugged and harsh and no other park in Tanzania epitomises the definition of "wild Africa" quite like the Ruaha. Vast and untouched the Ruaha National park, after the annexation of two other major conservation areas is now the largest National Park in Tanzania and stands currently at an incredible 23,000 square kilometers; substantially larger than Wales!
