Nimali Central Serengeti Camp brings a touch of luxury to the untamed wilderness of Tanzania. Lying at the foot of the majestic Makoma Hill, the upscale retreat perfectly balances an authentic safari experience with modern conveniences and creature comforts.

Located in the heart of the Serengeti National Park, guests experience excellent year-round game viewing and encounter nature at its most raw in one of Africa’s premier safari destinations. Spot herds of buffalo and elephant go about their day as you go on game drives through the national park or enjoy the view from the sky while floating in a hot-air balloon above the endless savannah. And, if you’ve timed your visit right, you will get to witness nature’s grandest show – the Great Wildebeest Migration.

Luxury Safari Tent

Nimali Central Serengeti’s eight luxury tents transports guests back to the golden age of safari with its Meru-style canvas tents, stone and wood fixtures and finishes, and endless views of the Serengeti plains dotted with acacia trees. You’ll even have your own writing desk to record your discoveries and adventures.

Fortunately, you won’t have to ‘rough it’ like the explorers of yesteryear. Stylish and elegant, each tent is minimalist in design and furnished with Persian carpets, comfortable beds, fixed wooden cupboards and a private verandah. Fans and open mesh windows keep you cool under the African sun, and the roll-up canvas panels not only invite cooling breezes, but open the room up to the tranquil nature outside.

Those with families are easily accommodated in the two tents that can be connected with an enclosed walkway that allows for easy access between rooms while maintaining complete privacy.


Nimali Central Serengeti provides guests with an authentic safari experience in the African wilderness. Game drives and hot-air balloon safaris are a true joy to experience before settling in at the open-sided seating area to watch as night falls on the plains. And, when the fun has been had and your body begins to feel tired from a day filled with adventure, you can relax and unwind at Essence Spa. Enjoy a range of spa journeys and healing treatments that take inspiration from the camp’s raw and beautiful surroundings.


There’s nothing quite like enjoying a meal in nature. At Nimali, you’ll be able to feast on gourmet dishes under the blue African sky or a canopy of stars, surrounded by beautiful scenery and the soothing sounds of the wild. For those who prefer to eat under cover, the dining hall in the main tent still offers panoramic views of the Serengeti plains. And if you’re feeling adventurous, shake things up with a breakfast, lunch or dinner at a private location in the bush.
