Opened in 2014, this is one of Tanzania’s newest camps and a classic Nomad safari experience. Tucked away in a secluded area of the park, this is a good option for those wanting Nomad’s tried and tested combination of luxury, environmental awareness and great guiding.
Nomad Kuro Tarangaire - The Facts
TThere are very few notable lodges in Tarangire
. Up until now Oliver’s has been our go-to camp but we hope that Nomad Kuro can challenge for the title. Most ‘Tarangire’ lodges are located just outside the park, meaning a short drive before you get to the park proper. Kuro sits right in the heart of the action but in relative isolation.
Isolation is the draw of both Tarangire and Kuro. It is a beautiful park with relatively few visitors, very few of whom stay long enough to get to the south-central region, where the few permanent lodges are. Kuro has been designed to maintain this sense of isolation and wilderness, a must on any Tanzania safari
. The main area blends well into its surroundings and there are only 6 stylish and comfortable tents, meaning you share this beautiful place with very few others.
The camp is designed, like all Nomad camps, to leave as small an environmental footprint as possible. The tents are decorated in classic neutral safari colours while the main area has a thatched grass roof. Each tent is ensuite with bucket shower and eco-flush toilet.
Kuro has performed incredibly well as we had expected. Run by Nomad, who have some of the top lodges in Tanzania and Kuro is the only rival to Oliver’s in this lovely area of Tarangire. The other speciality available in Tarangire is the night drive. It shows you a completely different Africa to the one you see by day and should not be missed.
