    The best things about Jongomero were Chris and Sam (the managers) and the "yum yum" food we were served with each day :) The individual lodgings were very well presented and kept, although we would have been grateful for a ceiling or standing fan for...More

    Please do return soon! We are delighted you saved the best for last - as you say the southern circuit has a very different feeling from the north - more remote, less well-travelled path and more intimate - karibu tena! SSC
