Northern Tanzania Highlights (Featuring Nimali Central Serengeti)

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 Central Serengeti Camp which opened on August 1st 2017.

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 Central Serengeti is a tented camp elegantly and comfortably furnished with all the necessary luxuries of a wild yet classic safari. The camp is located in the heart of the Serengeti close to Makoma Hill, offering utter seclusion and great access to the annual migration and the ‘Big 5’.
