Northern Tanzania Highlights (Featuring Nimali Mara)

This safari takes you to Tarangire for 2 nights, then you visit the Ngorongoro Crater for a day and lastly you stay 2 nights in Northern Serengeti. The safari takes you to some of  the best places in Tanzania to view wildlife in their natural setting.

This itinerary is perfect for those who want to take advantage of the great game-viewing in Tanzania’s flagship national parks, the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro conservation area and Tarangire, within a week. Extra nights can be added in Serengeti for a longer stay. Travellers will stay at Nimali Tarangire , a fairly new camp in Tarangire National park which opened in June 2015,  Tloma Lodge – built on the foothills of the highlands of Ngorongoro, with views of coffee plantations and the walls of the crater, and then on to the brand new Nimali Mara Camp which is open from July 2019

Nimali Tarangire is an exclusive luxury lodge located on the eastern boundary of Tarangire National Park that is renowned for its stunning baobab trees and large concentration of elephants.    Nimali Mara Camp is a small, intimate safari camp with only 10 tents. Located about 30 minutes from the Mara River in a small kopje, the camp  fits naturally into its surroundings amongst the trees and boulders with an infinity pool set within a natural cave.
