We welcome you from all over the world to Nasikia Camps!
Nasikia Camps are an intimate collection of mobile and semi-permanent camps located in the prime wildlife viewing areas of Tanzania's northern safari circuit - experience the wilds of Tarangire, the incredible herds of the southern Serengeti plains, the wildlife-filled central areas and a short drive to the gauntlet of the Mara River.
Listen to the Sounds of the Wild.
With high quality canvas between your comfortable bed and the sounds of the African night, these camps provide the ideal accommodation for lovers of the great outdoors, while retaining the coziness of a warm bed, a hot shower, gratifying cuisine and a welcoming team.
Your Extraordinary African Bush Experience with Nasikia Camps Has Just Begun!
CALVING ON THE GREAT SOUTHERN PLAINSAs the grasses display fresh, green shoots the migration arrives - millions of wildebeest, zebras and gazelles. From late January and through most of February, this area is what cinematographers make movies about. With a cup of freshly ground coffee in hand, stretch up out of your vehicle to see these animals as far as the eye can see:
CALVING ON THE GREAT SOUTHERN PLAINS
the sights and the sounds are stunning and embed in your safari memory. With the migrations herds come the preadtors; hyenas laughing, lions roaring and roaming cheetahs all looking for an opportunity to feast. During these months, our Nasikia Migration Mobile Camp is tucked away on a ridge overlooking the small marsh, a fresh water point for all species to quench their thirst.
THE WILD NORTH, DRAMATIC RIVER CROSSINGS IN MIGRATION
Often fast-slowing waters, snorting hippos and giant prehistoric crocs play havoc with the intentions of the herds and their drive to seek fresh food and water. We have Nasikia Mobile Migration Camp and Kaskaz Mara Camp in this stunning area – to highlight herd viewing and also faithful resident species. This area is adrenalin-pumping Jul-Oct, and a pleasure to explore at all other times of the year.
The Wild North, Dramatic River Crossings in MigrationThe Mara and Sand Rivers are pivotal locations (and gauntlets!) for the masses of wildebeest that circulate through the northern Serengeti from July-October each year – they must cross in order to maintain their migration patterns and follow the rains and fresh grasses to the south...
