Karibuni Naomi.

The Selous Safari Company is delighted to welcome Naomi Dippenaar to our team. Naomi has been appointed as camp manageress at Jongomero Camp in Ruaha National Park and brings with her 15 years of experience in the hospitality industry, most of it spent in the South African bush.

Jongomero is one of the most remote safari camps in Tanzania and managing it takes careful planning. We like our guests to find the service they encounter to be seamless and effortless, but in reality the whole operation of running a safari camp requires military precision and acumen. In addition to her own valuable knowledge Naomi can bank on the skills of whole team at Jongomero, all of whom are safari-professionals in their own specialisms and, between them, offer many years of experience at Jongomero, (- some members of them team have been there since we opened).

One of Naomi’s priorities over the next safari-season is to share her knowledge and passion of the spa-industry with some of our local staff to add to their ever-increasing list of skills, and we look forward to offering treatments later in the season. The Selous Safari Company regularly up-skills and empowers the staff that work in our camps and Naomi’s enthusiasm will make a valuable contribution to our efforts in this very remote area of Southern Tanzania.

Karibuni Naomi & Kazi Njema.

As I walk through the main relaxation areas of Jongomero I am instantly drawn to the full-flowing river beyond. My thoughts turn to how blissfully cool and tranquil it is here by the river, in the shade of a tall Jackalberry tree. I flew into the Ruaha National Park at the tail end of 'safari season'...
