One of the last great unspoilt wildlife meccas of Africa

Ruaha is where Nomad can be very Nomad. It's the largest national park in Tanzania -nearly 50% bigger than the Serengeti, yet with a tenth of the number of visitors. That makes us pioneers, bringing critical tourist incomes to a little visited park, a secret Africa that is properly wild. This untouched kind of territory suits us down to the ground, bringing out the explorer in us.

Amongst its lonely plains, sweeping sand rivers and swathes of woodland, elephants occur in large herds.There are abundant predators: lions, leopard, hunting dog, hyena. And great crocodiles in the Ruaha River, the park’s lifeblood. It’s also fantastic walking and driving country for our guides - who are a particularly independent-minded lot, and have the freedom of these vast, diverse tracts of habitat.

Ruaha National Park

Baobabs, kopjes and wide rolling grassland, Ruaha is a little visited but scenically stunning park that offers some of the best dry season game viewing in Tanzania.

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.

This is to South Africa’s Kruger Park what most safaris are to Whipsnade Zoo.

This stylish but rustic camp has nabbed the most beautiful spot in Africa’s biggest wilderness park, the unheralded Selous.

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.

Complete escapism awaits at newly opened Mkombe’s House, the only private house in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park.
