Nimali Central Serengeti

Overview

Nimali Central Serengeti is set in the heart of the Serengeti plains in northern Tanzania, part of the Serengeti Mara ecosystem. This charming and intimate tented camp has only eight rooms and has been designed for a truly authentic safari experience. The lounge and dining tents are wide open to make the very most of the breathtaking views of the Serengeti plains, furnished to offer a cosy and relaxing area in which to look through your photos or read a book. Sundowners are under the broad canopy of a large acacia tree with lanterns hanging from every branch and chairs surround an open fire where flames dance to the stories of the night.

Location of Nimali Central Serengeti

Built close to Makoma Hill, this luxury tented camp is hidden away offering a sense of seclusion. It has breathtaking views over the hills and plains and is perfectly situated on the path of the renowned migratory route. There is an abundance of game all year round in this part of the Serengeti. So even when the migration is not passing through, the residential wildlife is superb. Enjoy vast herds of buffalo and elephants, giraffe and of course many predators including lions, cheetahs and hyenas. Numerous small hills and kopjes dot the landscape where lions are often found, warming themselves on the smooth surface of the rocks.
The central Serengeti can be busy, but this is a secluded and quiet spot on the plains where few vehicles venture.
