Imagine a place, nestled in the wilderness, imbued with calm and serenity, founded on love and realised with the utmost care. A place where Africa’s mightiest animals walk in the footsteps of their ancestors and humans are mere visitors, paying their respects to the ancient knowledge of the elephants.
That place is Tarangire Ndovu Tented Camp by Nasikia Camps, located in Tarangire National Park, Tanzania.
Each camp within the Nasikia Camps brand is like a member of the family, each with their own distinct personality. Tarangire Ndovu Tented Camp is warm and welcoming – exactly the kind of place you want to call your home away from home in the wilderness. With subtle comforts and touches of bush elegance, Tarangire Ndovu Tented Camp offers guests a comfortable base from which to launch their wildlife explorations.
Ndovu in Swahili means “tusk”, and there is no better name for this camp, as it is situated in an ancient elephant migration route. By the thousands, these endangered giants move through the area in family groups, feeding on the national park’s vegetation and following in their ancestors’ ancient footsteps. Some say that an elephant’s ears are shaped like the African continent because they carry the spirit on Africa in every flat of their ears, every swish of their tail, and every blink of their eye.
