This organic, light-footed camp hidden away in the park, is probably closer to our hearts' core than any other.

Tarangire country is big and bold: our camp is the opposite...a little gem. Full of heart and soul, and tucked into a grove of secluded riverside bush, it is so much at one with the wild that animals hardly look up as they do their thing around us. Elephants often pass right through camp, and we can be completely absorbed into their secret lives, from the sweet comfort of our sun-slatted living space.

Lit by lanterns and solar lighting our Kuro Tarangire glows gently right in the heart of this phenomenal National Park.

Enhancing lives at Kuro

From enhancing dynamic careers to working with local communities and conservation projects, here are some inspiring stories from our award-winning camp in northern Serengeti.

Dentist outreach with Diana

Our dentist outreach programme visits schools to teach good oral hygiene as well as treat patients in the field. We recently visited three local schools in Tarangire screening over 400 students and 350 local people from surrounding communities. 640 people required immediate treatment bringing a lot of lovely smiles to Tarangire.

Wildlife education

John from Tarangire

John is a young lad from a long line of subsistence farmers in the village of Mwikantsi, just to the west of Tarangire National Park.

John was unable to continue his studies as his family simply could not afford the additional costs to finish high school.

But as part of Nomad's wildlife education programme, John has been selected to join a prestigious wildlife management course in Moshi. We are super excited to see this programme begin, looking to support local talent from villages in areas known for human-wildlife conflict.

Creating career paths

Chacha Makorere

Meet Chacha, who's an askari at Kuro and became a rifle carrying scout last year - a major milestone. He used to be a poacher living on the outskirts of the Serengeti, but joined our team and left his old ways behind.

He also has a veggie garden that his wife runs when he's in camp - we supplied the seed, and he grows delicious fresh produce that we buy for guests and staff: lovely lettuces, herbs, root veggies and more green goodness than you can shake a stick at.

The hugely respected Nomad Tanzania…have chosen to build in an area of acacia trees and kigelia trees...six large canvas tents stand in a line that traces the run of the river and are spaced to ensure privacy...they are also equipped for comfort, with hot bucket showers and enormous beds

Amazing Park Stay

This place is amazing! You have everything you need but are right in the park. The room was well-appointed, the food was delicious, and the staff was wonderful. We wish we’d spent more time here.
