Nimali Tarangire is situated on the banks of a seasonal river within its own concession, on Tarangire N.P.’s eastern boundary. The camp is accessed via flight from Arusha to Kuro airstrip (20 minutes) or Lake Manyara airstrip (30 minutes), followed by a drive of 3 hours from Kuro or 1 hour from Lake Manyara. Road transfer from Arusha’s airport takes about 2 hours 30 minutes, and from Kilimanjaro’s airport the journey time is 4 hours.
Guest accommodation consists of six tented suites, spaced along the river banks. Each is set up on a sturdy concrete, stone, and wood-look tile plinth, with the area in front of the tent entrance serving as a private deck complete with two cowskin chairs and a table. The tiles continue into the tent and are covered by matting in places. Interior furnishings and amenities feature a king-size bed or twin beds, bedside tables and lighting, a writing desk and chair, comfy armchairs, a fan, an electronic safe, a hairdryer, torches, and insect repellent.
Facilities & Services:
The en-suite facilities comprise flush toilet, twin washbasins, and rainfall shower with hot water available 24/7. Free toiletries are provided, including bar and liquid soap as well as body lotion. Although there is no family tent, two of the tents are pretty close together, and three tents are sufficiently spacious to accommodate an extra bed. Nimali Tarangire’s communal lodge building features the same wood-effect tiling as the guest tents, in addition to wood-and-canvas walls and an immaculately thatched roof. Inside, the lounge contains comfortable sofas and armchairs around coffee tables, pictures of plants, and a selection of reading material. In the dining area, chic separate tables are flanked by smart rattan chairs, and more plant artwork adorns the walls. A short walk from the lodge, you’ll find the fire-pit boma, where guests often gather for sundowner drinks before dinner. Nimali Tarangire also has a swimming pool with sunloungers and parasols alongside – this is the perfect place to relax in between activities! And if you’re in need of a little pampering, a range of therapies from Essence Spa is available, booked in advance.
