COMFORT / CULTURE / WILDLIFE
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.
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.
As 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…
The 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…

Here is a short bio….
The dream that is Africa – after watching the romance of exploration and adventure of the safari expeditions of a bygone era on the big screen, it’s time to create memorable voyages of your own. Ehlane Plains Camp has been established in the far eastern plains of the Serengeti, a remote and wildlife-filled pocket of the savannah.
This is where the magic begins, this is where your dream of wild Africa comes alive. ‘Ehlane’ is a Zulu word which translates to ‘wilderness’. It is a clear description of the extraordinary and newly accessible location which presents forth an unsurpassed display of predators and predator activity.
It is here in the Soit le Motonyi region, far from the Serengeti transit areas, that you are able to find something wild and spectacular amongst this rough country. The area is unique; unspoilt, silent, remote and truly exciting.

Naona Moru showed us the most incredible hospitality we have ever experienced anywhere — bar none, full stop — making our four nights here a dream come true. We had the camp to ourselves for three of the four nights and every single person went the extra mile (or 10,000 miles!) to make us have the greatest honeymoon experience imaginable.
Stayed at camp for two nights and loved it the tents are spacious clean and comfortable the staff friendly and attentive and we made some great friends amongst them. The food was outstanding warm fresh bread rolls and the most amazing yoghurt desert. Just loved this place should have stayed longer. We left the tent flaps open and saw hackles in the bush of a night. Safe, friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend
We had a great two night stay at this camp, the staff were super friendly and the food was great. We spent early evening with a good glass of wine watching the wildlife go by whilst sitting by the fire pit, perfect! The tents were lovely, though the mattress was a little hard for my taste. Still everything else was pretty great and we would highly recommend a stay here.
We stayed at Naona Moru camp for 2 nights as part of a week-long safari. What a wonderful surprise when we drove up after a long day of game drive to this modern tented safari camp – simply suberb! The staff greeted us with hot towels and fresh juice. Our tent had 2 double beds and a large bathroom and the food was amazing. You also get free laundry service which was greatly needed after being on the dusty safari roads. This unique camp added so much to our experience!
We just stayed 2 nights at this camp. Out of the 10 tents we were the only ones there. We were pampered. The staff was very friendly & attentive. We were fed very well. Sitting around the fire pit in the evening was very enjoyable.
If you are a lite sleeper this isn’t the place for you. Many animal noises heard through the night. Wildebeest migration through the camp in the middle of the night.
