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.

Since working with Nomad my farm has doubled in size and I take pride in providing fresh produce to Greystoke.

It is immediately obvious that you are in very remote location with no roads nearby and only mountains and chimps for company.

The majority of safari camps and lodges are not set up for young children, but this exclusive-use sister property to the eight-room Lamai Serengeti was designed especially for them: there are two fenced-off pools (including one for infants and toddlers), the staff cook to order and game drives are when it suits.

Nomad safari guides operate the best camps in the best locations.

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