The Camp

Set alongside a dry riverbed peppered with huge granite boulders and well hidden amongst the acacia and baobab trees, Nimali Tarangire sits peacefully in its own private concession, adjacent to the eastern boundary of Tarangire National Park and, most importantly, away from the mainstream vehicles visiting the National Park.  No-one else is allowed to drive within our own private concession and we use open vehicles for all of our game activities. We offer guided walks and night drives as well as the option of sundowners whilst overlooking this beautiful, rather wild area.

Tarangire National Park is lush and green, particularly in the early part of the year, and one of the most beautiful National Parks in Tanzania. Home to large herds of elephant, prolific birdlife and plentiful year-round game, the wildlife spills into the Nimali concession and is often found just metres from the Camp, around a large waterhole. Our concession eases the pressure for wildlife inside the Park, preserves and protects our surrounding habitat, allows our local communities to derive meaningful and lasting benefits from the land and ensures our guests have a private and exceptional wildlife experience.

Nimali Tarangire is a stunning eight room tented camp, designed with tranquility in mind. Guests are welcomed into a spacious, open-fronted lounge overlooking lovely views towards the swimming pool and a waterhole beyond.  Natural materials set the tone for relaxation where natural fabrics, wood, canvas and leather blend with a contemporary décor for a sense of elegance and comfort. The dining area opens up to a traditional boma with a firepit and comfortable chairs, simply waiting for the night to draw in and the stories to begin.

Camp Access:

Located only a 2.5 hour drive from the city of Arusha, Nimali Tarangire is the perfect starting point for the northern safari circuit.

What sets us apart:  

The exclusiveness of a private concession allows guests to enjoy many activities that are not available to those staying inside the National Park including guided walks, game drives, sundowners and night drives in open 4x4 vehicles. Relax with a private spa treatment in your room followed by a delicious light lunch under the cool canopy of trees overhanging the riverbed or a surprise bush dinner surrounded by candlelight and the gentle, rhythmic sounds of the bush. In the evenings, we offer a la carte dining, as opposed to traditional buffet, with a simple choice of delicious meals inspired by the seasons.

We also encourage guests to discover the uniqueness of our surrounding eco-system in more depth with a fly and bush camp experience or take to the skies in a spectacular balloon flight over the National Park.
