For guests seeking a remote African adventure, a visit to Ruaha National Park is essential. For 3 nights you will stay in a tented suite with a private veranda overlooking the riverbed. Fall asleep to the hum of Africa beyond the canvas and wake up to the morning tea tray and animals ambling past your mosquito net windows. Then fly to Zanzibar for 7 nights with the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean to one side, lush green forest to the other, and just a hint of spice in the warm and fragrant tropical air.
No other Park in Tanzania epitomises the definition of 'Wild Africa' quite like Ruaha. There are upwards of 570 species of birds - half of all Tanzania’s birds may be glimpsed in this park making it one of the continents premier birding destinations.Ruaha also holds one of the greatest populations of elephant in any African Park, buffalo gather in large herds as well as giraffe, zebra, impala, eland, hippo, crocodile, lion and leopard. The rarer, less-seen creatures can also be found including sable and roan antelope, dikdik, greater and lesser kudus, Grants gazelle, honey badgers and is second to only Selous Game Reserve for the largest population of wild dog.
Blending in beautifully with its surroundings, Jongomero Camp is tucked below a dappled riverine canopy on the banks of the Jongomero sand river, a natural pathway for animals in search of water.

Daily game walks and game drives enable you to truly experience the wonders of Ruaha.
Then you’ll set course for the white sands of Zanzibar, where you’ll stay in an Ocean Bungalow overlooking the beach and close to the mesmerising azure waters of the Indian Ocean.
