We've tried to sum up the excitement, anticipation and feeling of "being there" in a short video...enjoy!
If you're thinking of visiting the Serengeti this year, don't miss out on all that Tarangire has to offer.
Take a glimpse of this magical place in all of it's animated splendour.
If you're seeking an adventure far from the madding crowds and want to feel true wilderness, this is where you go.
As you walk around the camp, you are constantly surprised by new views of baobab groves glowing in the sun.
For the past 20 years we've pioneered, owned and operated our outstanding small safari camps in three of the remotest corners of Tanzania. If you are looking for superb locations, exceptional guiding and the essence of safari, get in touch.

Take in the Crater, combine calving season of the wildebeest migration on the southern Serengeti plains with great game drives, walking safaris ...
Pick up from Kilimanjaro International Airport or your Arusha hotel by your Nomad car and guide. Drive west to the Karatu area of the Ngorongoro Highlands, a perfect spot from which to explore the Crater tomorrow. Settle in to the comfortable Plantation Lodge.
Spend the morning discovering the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater and the fabulous wildlife with your private guide. After a picnic lunch in the Crater, head onwards across the magnificent plains of southern Loliondo to settle into your comfortable safari tent at Nduara Loliondo.
Head out for an early walk across wide open plains and acacia-wooded slopes in search of the little things of the bush. Your expert guide and local Maasai will interpret the sights and signs that you come across, culminating in a bush breakfast in a picturesque spot. In the afternoon, watch the Maasai cattle returning home and witness the traditional blood taking and "olpul" (milk and blood drink).
Take a drive out to a Maasai boma early to watch the cows head out to graze and hike with the donkeys to fetch water. Chat to the women about their lives in this wild place and have a peak inside an enkaji. Later in the day, venture out to enjoy a sundowner with some Maasai dancing and a night drive back to camp.
Wave an early goodbye to Nduara and depart on an extended day's game drive to the Serengeti Safari Camp on the edge of the Ndutu woodlands - a scenic and memorable day on the southern plains.
Settle into your comfy tent, enjoy a hot shower, ice cold drink around the fire and a delicious dinner.
Get out and about with your Nomad guide for game drives across the Serengeti. Search for Lion or Cheetah along the edge of the woodland or head out into the vast plains to get amongst the wildebeest migration, along with huge herds of zebra & gazelle.
You'll be surprised by the fabulous mix of birdlife in this area as well as the carpet of flowers that develops with the first rains. In early February the wildebeest calving will peak and, with it, increased chances of predator activity. Evening game drives in this area can be good for leopard, as well as other small African cats like Serval, African Wild cat or even Caracal if you're extremely lucky.
After a leisurely breakfast, pack your bags and take a short last game drive back to the airstrip to catch your return flight back to Arusha and on home.
Our fabulous camp managers can be found via their own camp blogs, where they have centre stage - and a free rein - to tell you exactly what goes on 'on safari'.
