The newly-refurbished Namiri Plains holds a privileged position in the previously restricted grasslands of the Eastern Serengeti. The camp boasts classic Serengeti views of open plains dotted with a few acacia trees and is located in the heart of big cat territory with the highest density of cheetah in East Africa. Game drives and walking safaris are the main activities at Namiri Plains.
Namiri Plains Camp has eight spacious tents scattered around the main mess tent, one of which is a family tent. There are two honeymoon tents. Décor is minimalistic and undeniably African with a few convenient extras like electronic safes, walkie-talkies, and flashlights. The tents are solar-powered and each one has a large deck with seating and excellent views over the plains.
The main dining tent has a comfortable seating area, small library and bar. A small fire pit is located nearby under an acacia tree adorned with lanterns. There is also an information centre, swimming pool and spa, and Wi-Fi in the communal areas.
Lion, cheetah and leopard sightings are astoundingly common while staying at Namiri Plains and you can also expect to see large numbers of plains game, elephant, buffalo and abundant birds. This is one of the most remote areas of the Serengeti with the nearest camp over an hour away, so you’re assured of an intimate safari experience, far from the crowds.
Like all the camps in the Asilia Africa Group, Namiri Plains has a strong focus on sustainability, community enrichment and conservation.
