For the epitome of great game viewing in Tanzania, there’s nothing like the thrill of a guided walking safari.
Get up close and personal to animals great and small and watch unseen as they go about their daily business, some hunting their next prey, others off in search of water. To be sure of the best possible experience, stay with The Selous Safari Company who offer not just luxury tented accommodation but also the only qualified walking guide in the Ruaha National Park.
Licensed by the Tanzania National Parks to conduct bush walks, Andrew ‘Molly’ Molinaro is the camp manager and one of the safari guides at the boutique Jongomero Camp. Molly lives and breathes the African bush and on guided bush walks he entertains, teaches and enthrals guests. One of his greatest abilities as a guide is to teach not show and by the end of the guests’ stay they are able to spot the tracks and markings, know what the trees around them are used for and how the life of the bush works from Baobab trees to water pans.
With the safari season in Tanzania starting on 1 June, visitors to the luxurious Jongomero Camp are offered guided walking safaris in the Ruaha National Park as one of the activities available during their stay. Walks concentrate primarily on the smaller, unseen yet no-less-interesting parts of nature however there is always the feeling of wondering if something big might be around the next bush. Lion are sometimes seen as well as occasional cheetah and jackal, while elephants, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, waterbuck, warthog and impala are plentiful.
Vast and untouched, Ruaha is the largest National Park in Tanzania and stands at 23,000 sq km - substantially larger than Wales – and boasts an extraordinary large population of elephant and antelope. While lesser known, to safari connoisseurs Ruaha is one of the most spectacular national parks in Africa offering a landscape that is rugged and harsh. No other park epitomises the definition of "wild Africa" quite like Ruaha.
Jongomero, the only camp situated in the remote central south-western sector of the Ruaha National Park, offers the ultimate off-the-beaten-track experience. A hidden gem with just eight luxury tents, a swimming pool and fabulous food, it promises a great vantage point from which to take in the sights and sounds of the African bush.
(expertafrica.com) is offering five nights on a full-board basis at Jongomero Camp in Tanzania from just £2,525 per person (a saving of up to £537). Available for travel in June, September and October, the price includes scheduled flights from Heathrow (via Nairobi), internal transfers, game viewing drives in open sided 4x4 vehicles, concession and park entrance fees.
