Nimali Mara Camp detail

Nimali’s high-end boutique properties set the gold standard for opulence, class, and style. And Nimali Mara is no exception. Tucked away in a remote sector of the famed Serengeti National Park, this eco-luxe retreat gets you away from the crowded areas of this famous safari destination in favor of a more tranquil spot near the Mara River.

The lodge occupies an enviable location that’s perfect for viewing the river crossings during the annual Great Wildebeest Migration. Witness thousands of wildebeest and zebra make their way across the river in search of better grazing. And, if you can’t make this grand show, the area still has excellent year-round game viewing that can be done on game drives, walking safaris, or from the comfort of a hot-air balloon.

Nimali Mara is ideal for the leisure traveler who wants a classic safari and a luxury vacation all in one. The tented suites the opulent, the facilities are state-of-the-art and you’ll feel treated like royalty from your arrival up to the moment you say goodbye.

Luxury Tented Suite

Each of Nimali Mara’s eco-luxe tents is an oasis. A testament to the beauty of modern architecture, each tent’s contemporary design and chic interior are perfectly complemented by the traditional elements of stone, canvas, and wood. The external walls of each suite are fashioned out of canvas while the front is glass – immersing guests in nature while providing plenty of natural light and breathtaking views.

And while you may be visiting a remote part of the Northern Serengeti, you won’t be without modern comforts. The most notable are the private plunge pool and comfy swing bed that can be found on the front deck.

In addition to the eight luxury tents, Nimali Mara offers two honeymoon suites that can be turned into a family tent if needed.


Safaris can be tiring. Fortunately, Nimali Mara understands this and has crafted its camp to be a tranquil retreat that is sure to refresh your mind, body, and soul. Unwind with a massage or spa treatment after a day of game drives. Experience a swim like no other in Nimali Mara’s infinity pool that’s set within a natural cave. Or curl up with a good book from the library and a cold drink from the bar in the main building’s comfortable seating area.


Expect gourmet meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Nimali Mara. Each dish is prepared from the freshest ingredients and can be taken in the privacy of your room or at the onsite restaurant which has seating inside and out. Or, if you want an experience that’s out of the ordinary, Nimali Mara would be more than happy to arrange mealtimes at a picturesque location in the bush.
