Nimali Mara

Property Description

Set in tranquil Kogatende, in the remote Northern Serengeti, Nimali Mara is an intimate safari camp with just 10 luxury tents on a small kopje (hill) 30 minutes from the Mara River. Tucked among trees and boulders, the camp fits naturally into its surroundings, its infinity pool set within a natural cave.

As eco-friendly as it is luxurious, the family-owned and managed Nimali Mara is far from the hustle and bustle of safari vehicles, yet offers easy access to the river and views of migrating wildebeest. It features eight tented suites and two honeymoon suites with a private plunge pool and lounge area that can convert into a room for family travelers. Each suite has a double shower and brass bath tub. Walls are canvas while the front of each tent is glass to maximize the endless views.

At Nimali Mara, guests enjoy the most personalized service imaginable and a wealth of activities that make the most of the region’s superb wildlife viewing, from spectacular ballon flights to private sundowners and guided game drives.


Guests of Nimali Mara can dine in a tented dining room with soaring views over the Serengeti or head out into the bush for an unforgettable lunch, dinner or champagne breakfast. At the end of the day, they can toast their good fortune and share stories over private sundowners.


At the camp, guests can indulge in spa services in the privacy of their tent (on request; must be arranged prior to arrival) and enjoy a relaxing soak in the infinity pool, memorably tucked into a natural cave. Game viewing is exceptional in this corner of the Serengeti, and guests can experience it on guided game drives, walking safaris, or from above on a spectacular hot-air balloon flight.
