And each shares an overarching ethos of respect for people and planet.

what makes us different


Our story is rooted in a family history in East Africa that dates back to the 1890s. It's a pedigree that has helped us to create a brand that lives and breathes our passion of sharing our love for Tanzania and the collective knowledge and experience of this magical country that the intervening generations have afforded us.



The Nimali brand is underpinned by a deep commitment to all aspects of sustainable tourism, from working hard to bridge the gap between communities and conservation to reducing our impact on the environment. For us, doing business is about having respect for both people and planet and doing everything we canto ensure your safari benefits everyone and everything involved in it.  



We are our stories. And our journal is where our stories are brought to life through our blogs and regular news updates, keeping you abreast of everything that's happening at Nimali.
