Expect sightings of vast herds of elephant and plenty of wild game when you visit Nimali Tarangire, a charming lodge in a private concession on the eastern boundary of Tanzania's Tarangire National Park. The annual Great Migration passes through this area, earning it the reputation as having the highest concentration of game in Tanzania outside the Serengeti.
A private concession's exclusiveness 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 instead of a traditional buffet, with a simple choice of delicious meals inspired by the seasons. The camp itself is tucked in a shady grove of acacia and baobab trees beside a riverbed. It's an intimate ten-room camp, its design blending simple structures and contemporary style with earthy accents, with five-star service.

Only in Common Area
Nimali Tarangire is a stunning Ten room tented camp, designed with tranquillity 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 fire pit and comfortable chairs, merely waiting for the night to draw in and the stories to begin.
Two of the tents are linked together and designed for families or couples travelling together. Connected by a large lounge overlooking a private deck and complete with plunge pool, these suites are a mix of contemporary and earthy furnishings, complete with fixed bathroom walls and wooden doors. Each tent is expansive with plenty of room for a writing desk and a reading corner.
This intimate camp consists of ten expedition-style tents of light, airy canvas on slightly raised decking, with beautiful views of the riverbed and dramatic boulders beneath. Each guest tent is large and stylishly furnished with a sense of exploration offering a large, leather-strapped travelling chest, private deck and en-suite facilities of flush loo, double vanity basin and revitalizing rain shower. The spacious decks are perfect for private dining and in-room spa treatments. Fans and open-sided walls (with mesh) allow the rooms to remain calm and comfortable during the heat of the day. Early mornings are an extraordinary time when the riverbed is dappled with the first rays of sunshine and guests, savouring coffee whilst sitting on the deck, often see elephant enjoying a hearty breakfast on the opposite side of the bank.
