Northern Tanzania has long been a favourite stomping ground for us Nomad folk and we know this region better than most. We were the first company to create a mobile tented camp that shadowed the migration around the Serengeti, and our Serengeti Safari Camp still continues this odyssey to this day. Our other camps are all tucked away in hidden corners of the parks, Kuro Tarangire nestles right in the beating heart of this beautiful park, Entamanu Ngorongoro redefines the Crater experience on our very own wild side of the Crater rim, and Lamai and Mkombe's House stand proud above the Northern Serengeti grasslands. This is a route that is well trodden in Tanzania, so it is important to us that you see it as we did all those years ago. Our team of intrepid and highly experienced Northern guides love nothing more than the discovery of hidden gems on the roads less travelled.

Northern Tanzania

Our Northern Tanzania camps are in enviable locations that mean we can take you deeper into this epic wilderness. Tucked away, off the tourist trail, but in extraordinary wildlife areas a safari spent in our Northern camps is not to be missed.

Open from June to end October, it offers a changing wildlife spectacle as the Kakuma River dries up, the plains turn gold, and the remaining pools become increasingly contested by the huge numbers of hippos, while crocs hunker down in riverbank caves. 

The Mahale Mountains in western Tanzania are famous for their chimps: there are some 800 of them here, around 75 of them habituated. Guests at this spectacular beach lodge on Lake Tanganyika are likely to spot other primate species, too, including red colobus, red-tailed monkeys and vervets. 

To look down into the immense bowl of the Ngorongoro Crater is to stand at the gates of heaven.

You might say the 20-year-old Nomad Tanzania knows this corner of the world more intimately than most—which might explain how their next venture is the first to secure a previously untapped viewpoint. Six canvas bungalows, lined up along the Ngorongoro Crater Rim, feature unprecedented vistas of both the crater floor sunrises and Serengeti sunsets.

Safari game drives are commonplace on the continent, but few do them like Nomad. Its camps are not only located in some of the most far flung corners of the country, but are a mix of permanent sites, removable tents that disappear with the seasons, and mobile camps that mirror migration routes.
