Could not be more PERFECT!

If you are looking for rustic, but with all the comforts, Nomad Kuro Tarangire is the place. The tents are thoughtfully designed, maximizing view outside at every turn. They blend seamlessly into the surroundings and the animals wander throughout the camp as there are no fences.

The facilities are what you'd likely expect from a safari camp at this price point, but it's the thoughtfulness of amenities, the staff and the food that push it over the top and make it worth every penny. The rooms have an adapter, so no need to worry if you forget yours. They also have shampoo, conditioner and body wash in both the inside and outside showers, using refillable containers, so you can leave these things at home too and be sure you're not expanding your plastic footprint by using theirs. They take the extra step of placing hot water in a thermos at the sink for you to wash your face. (Note, the water in the tap is cold only. When you want a shower, you let them know and they fill the bucket with perfectly hot water - any time - day or night.). The veranda has 2 safari chairs and a chaise and is ideal for relaxing and watching the animals near and far. They place a bird bath just beyond the veranda, and birds do come and play, as do bushbucks and dik diks. They bring coffee in the morning at wake up. They miss nothing.

The staff - incredible, knowledgeable, intuitive, thoughtful. They are keeping track of you and you don't even realize it. I pulled a back muscle and they located pain medicine and called ahead to the next Nomad camp to advise them of my injury. The guiding was excellent - Emmanuel (who had not been called up since March due to the reduction in tourism, which was truly sad to see) was perfectly matched with us. He allowed us to take it all in without a running commentary and without rushing us. Then he started filling in all the details, opening our eyes to things we didn't initially see. We learned so much, saw so much, and enjoyed every minute with him. The camp manager, Mollel, is to be commended for running such a perfectly managed establishment, which seemed to work by magic. Such a takeaway is a testament to Mollel. Elias was the primary staff with whom we had interaction. He was attentive and engaging and make us feel at ease every day.

Lastly, the food. OMG THE FOOD! David, the chef, prepared food that left us speechless - at EVERY SINGLE MEAL! (If you visit a Nomad camp, ask them about the training they give their chefs.) I would eat David's cooking every day, for the rest of my life, if I could. It was outrageously good. In short, I cannot say enough good things about this camp. Just go. You won't be disappointed.
