Overview of Namiri Plains

Namiri Plains is a luxury tented camp in the remote eastern Serengeti – an area that was closed to tourists for a period of 20 years to allow the cheetah population to restore itself. Today, it is a safe haven for these big cats, as well as lion. In Swahili, ‘Namiri’ translates to ‘big cat’ and this exclusive camp offers some of East Africa’s best cheetah viewing opportunities as well as sightings of hyena, zebra, Thomson’s gazelle and eland. Namiri offers a superior level of comfort and has a remote location – more than an hour’s drive from any other camp.

This fascinating journey is made thrilling by the abundance of predators hot on the heels of the game, providing you the opportunity to witness them stalking and hunting their prey. Highly skilled guides take you on 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 or lunch in the bush, or enjoying a sundowner drink and snacks in a breath-taking setting.
