If oyu have enough system resources like RAM/CPUs/DiskSpace then there should be no issues you can install Nifi & Kafka on same host as well.

For example you can check the HDF Sandbox where both are installed on the same single host. https://hortonworks.com/tutorial/getting-started-with-hdf-sandbox/

Additionally], the following two articles can help in tuning Nifi + Kafka
