Property Description

Set in the vast Serengeti plains of northern Tanzania, Nimali Central Serengeti offers an authentic, intimate safari experience with just eight tented suites surrounded by breathtaking, wide-open views. The luxury camp is perfectly situated on the path of the Great Migration, giving guests a spectacular vantage point of the annual crossing, as well as an abundance of local wildlife year-round.

Providing modern comforts with minimal impact on the environment, each guest suite combines stylish furnishings with the spirit of adventure of a bygone era, with large, comfortable beds, Persian carpets, wide private verandahs, and en-suite baths with rain showers. Dining and lounge tents are wide open to views of the plains and hills and provide welcoming spots to gather and share photos and stories.

Guests of Nimali Central Serengeti can explore the Serengeti and its magnificent wildlife by guided game drive. Soar high above the plains in a thrilling hot-air balloon safari. Luxuriate in the privacy of their own tent with a healing spa treatment inspired by local flora and fauna and the raw beauty of the Savannah. And, in the evening, sip sundowners by an open fire, under a lantern-dotted acacia tree against the endless, starry African sky.


Nimali Central Serengeti’s dining tent opens to spectacular views of the surrounding plains and passing wildlife. Guests can also dine on the privacy of their veranda. Champagne bush breakfasts, bush lunches, and candlelight bush dinners under starlit skies can be arranged and are an unforgettable treat. Evening sundowners are served by an open fire under the expansive canopy of an acacia tree.

Spa Services

In the privacy of their own tent, guests can enjoy a selection of spa journeys and healing treatments under the expert hands of Essence Spa’s skilled therapists. Treatments are inspired by the raw beauty of the Savannah and incorporate natural local elements selected for their purity and cultural authenticity. (Note: spa treatments are on request and must be arranged prior to arrival.)


Safaris: Guests can observe big game from the camp, on a guided game drive, or by hot-air balloon safari. Nimali Central Serengeti is perfectly situated along the path of the annual Great Migration, during which tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebra traverse the plains in what is considered the greatest wildlife show on earth. The surrounding area is also home year-round to vast herds of buffalo and elephants, giraffe, and predators from lions and cheetahs to hyenas.
