Nomad Tanzania is one of East Africa's original safari companies. For the past 20 years we’ve owned and operated our outstanding small safari camps in three of the remotest corners of Tanzania. Over the years we’ve built a reputation for quality that we're proud of.
Our founders were the pioneers in remote parts of the country that few people had heard of at the time, and fewer still had visited. Today, thanks to their efforts, it's no exaggeration to say that our small safari camps, many of which were the first of their kind in their respective areas, occupy some of the most coveted locations in the whole of Africa.
Whilst our camps are a great source of pride to us, our motivation goes far deeper than simply providing places to stay. We're a close group of individuals with a deep love of the African bush and a passion for sharing it with those who also share our interests. We have a superb team of safari guides, many of whom have been with us for almost 15 years; their knowledge and dedication is a major part of what Nomad is about.
We hope to see you on safari soon.
Chada Katavi, located on a shady spit at the edge of the great Chada plain, promises you total absorption in the natural world.
Miles from anywhere, there are no other camps, no mini-buses, no tourists, just thousands of buffalo, sable, roan antelope, elephants, hippos and you - in a million acres of National Park.
Kiba Point Selous
Kiba Point is a rare thing - a completely private home-away-from-home but in one of the wildest safari areas remaining in Africa.
Resting on the banks of the mile-wide Rufiji River, surrounded by miles of wilderness, Kiba offers groups of friends and family the chance to explore and relax at their own pace.
Lamai Serengeti occupies arguably the best location in the Serengeti. Beautifully crafted around the Kogakuria Kopje so as to be invisible from the surrounding plains, the lodge has commanding views across the northern Serengeti.
Between July and October, the migration moves through here en-masse, but between November and March, the rich resident game, stunning landscapes and beautiful birdlife returns to the enjoyment of the privileged few who know about Secret Season in the Serengeti.
Nduara Loliondo moves seasonally between two different locations in one of the most scenically beautiful areas of Tanzania. Bordering the Serengeti National Park, Loliondo is in fact a Maasai community area in which a small number of nomadic tribes people co-exist with wildlife.
Our private agreement in the area allows for the wonderful freedom of walking, night driving and off-road driving, in addition to a totally non-commercial Maasai encounter. We have long felt that Loliondo has been overlooked as one of the richest experiences that Tanzania has to offer.
Serengeti Safari Camp
How do you keep up with a million wildebeest that move all the time? The answer of course is to move with them. Since the 1980s, our Serengeti Safari Camp has followed the route of the migration, moving seasonally 4-5 each year to be in the best possible location to view the herds and accompanying predators.
The camp moves through a variety of landscapes and phases of the migration, from calving in the short grass plains of the south, to river crossings in the far north. In the company of an expert private guide, guests in our camp experience this raw, rich wildlife phenomenon in authentic safari style.
Greystoke Mahale perches on a remote white sandy beach, backed up by forested mountains, home to one of the largest populations of wilde chimpanzees remaining in the world.
The camp's striking location, unique bohemian style and variety of activities - from chimp trekking to deep-water swims, fishing and kayaking, make it an extraordinary destination for the adventurous traveller.
Kigelia Ruaha is where you go when your soul seeks the humbling solitude of giant baobabs, the exhiliration of encountering Africa's big cats or great herds of elephant; where the focus is on experiencing nature and not the gold taps, and where you can feel at home while simultaneously enjoying the care of a dedicated team.
Tarangire is the essence of the rich African wildilfe experience. Second only to the Serengeti in its concentration of wildlife, Tarangire is an echo of those early pioneering safaris.
Sand River Selous
Sand Rivers Selous perches on the banks of the wide, lazy Rufiji River in the wildest part of the Selous Game Reserve. This small lodge was founded in the 1980s by Richard Bonham, who pioneered walking safaris here all those years ago.
Today we continue to explore the area by foot, but also by boat and in open game vehicles. We even take our fly camp out for a night under the stars.
