overview

Tucked away in a grove of fever trees and offering breath-taking views over the sweeping plains, Namiri Plains is an intimate tented camp in the central Seronera, which is known as one of the most reliable game-viewing areas within Serengeti National Park. It is a safe haven for cheetah, which can be seen in unsurpassed numbers on daily game drives.

In Swahili, ‘Namiri’ translates to ‘big cat’ and this exclusive camp in the eastern corner of the Serengeti undoubtedly offers East Africa’s best cheetah viewing opportunities as well as sightings of serval, aardwolf and endangered pangolin. Namiri offers a superior level of comfort and has a remote location - more than an hour’s drive from any other camps. Its stunning location also affords front-row seats to nature’s most dramatic spectacle – the Wildebeest Migration – when hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra make the annual pilgrimage through Seronera as they head north in search of fresh grazing. This fascinating journey is made even more thrilling by the abundance of predators hot on the heels of the migrating game, providing you the opportunity to witness them stalking and hunting their prey.

Highly skilled ranger-and-tracker teams guide daily drives through the acacia-dotted wilderness, inviting you and your family to see and experience the Serengeti through their eyes. Aside from these intriguing wildlife encounters, relish in simple pleasures such as breakfast on Soit Le Motonyi rock while watching the sun rise majestically, or enjoying a sundowner and snacks atop the Barafu Kopjes.
