Kuro Tarangire

In creating this camp, Nomad Tanzania have sought to keep their footprint as light as possible. Combining the essence of authentic safari with the textures and elements of the Africa that surrounds camp. Providing all those necessary comforts without overdoing it, ensuring the human presence here is in tune with, and not overbearing to, this beautiful place.

One of the things that makes this place is that you can walk straight out of camp and into wild Africa. You also have the freedom to explore in open cars both during the day and under the night sky. Furthermore, the style and location of the camp means that you can sit at peace and observe the natural rhythms of life as it continues undisturbed around you. It couldn't be better, really.

Game drives in 4WD vehicles
Game drives are a fantastic way to see Tarangire. This park is second only to the Serengeti in its concentration of wildlife and is well known for big herds of buffalo, elephant that stand picturesquely beneath the spreading branches of baobabs and prides of lazy lion sprawled in the shade of acacia scrub. The muted colours of Africa are frequently lit up by the bright reds and yellows of barbets, starlings and bee-eaters; there are over 550 species of birds here. Sometimes we'll take advantage of our freedom to venture out at night for this is when elusive creatures also choose to softly tread the trails. Few things are more exhilarating than catching a glimpse of the patterned flank of a leopard as it slinks through the grass beside our car.

Walking safari
You will wake in the cool of the early morning and walk straight out of camp to discover evidence of the night's activities along the course of the Tarangire River. There's something very special about placing one's own foot within the print of an elephant, or kneeling to cradle the nest of a praying mantis, glistening with dew. It's the sort of rare freedom that we seldom enjoy in our busy lives.
