Nduara Loliondo

Loliondo, Tanzania

1/3
2/3
3/3

Good game viewing but emphasis on walks, nightdrives, picnics

Guide Price: From: $650 To: $875

Nduara Loliondo is a first class small safari camp offering game drives, walking safaris and night drives in Loliondo. It's designed to make the most of the freedom that Loliondo (part of the Serengeti ecosystem, but not under jurisdiction of National Parks) offers.

Loliondo is a Maasai community area, so safari walks accompanied by Maasai Morani add a fascinating cultural dimension to the experience.

Nduara is moved seasonally between the north of the ecosystem and the south. In each location it has a partnership with a small Maasai community who benefit directly from visitors to the camp. In the north, between mid June and December, the camp is in Ololosokwan, which lies in amongst the large hills to the north of Lobo.

For the other half of the year, the camp has a similar arrangement with Piyaya, which is close to the Gol Mountains and Sanjan Gorge further south. Moves are timed to coincide with the wildebeest migration as it moves between its northern and southern ranges.

Nduara Loliondo works well in conjunction with its sister camps in the Serengeti National Park like Nomad's Serengeti Mara (August to October) and Nomad's Serengeti Ndutu (December to March).  Game viewing is good throughout the year and as well as game drives and walks, Loliondo is one of the few parts of northern Tanzania where you will be able to do night drives.

Definitely somewhere you should come if you don't want to be in the company of lots of other tourists and like the idea of seeing more than a single side to the Serengeti.

We have now returned from our wonderful holiday in Tanzania and would like to thank Natural High Safaris for the excellent organization of this safari. Everything worked like a treat, there were always people to meet us on arrival in each stop and everything that we had read and been told about at each place, was as described.

C & L H Feb 2010

Just a note to let you know that our trip to Tanzania was spectacular. We had the best guide who was most knowledgeable and great fun to be with. The tents and yurts were wonderful and the food was delicious. We were blessed with excellent weather and saw every animal possible and plenty of action among the big cats. It was unforgettable and I miss it already.

Loliondo

Loliondo could perhaps be described as the Serengeti with fewer rules, offering as it does excellent walking safaris, night drives and for much of the year rewarding game viewing. Spanning the entire eastern edge of the Serengeti National Park, it's a critical part of the whole ecosystem - yet visited by remarkably few tourists.  Loliondo is actually a huge Maasai community area but in our opinion is worth treating as a separate park because the range of safari activities on offer here is significantly greater than those within the Serengeti National Park boundaries. For much of the year, you'll find that we recommend that you divide your stay in both the Serengeti and Loliondo, staying at camps like Nomad's Nduara Loliondo. The intention here is that you get to see the wildebeest migration whilst also experiencing the wilder side of this stunning area. Read more?
