Namiri Plains

Feefo logo

Overview

Set along the Ngare Nanyuki River, Namiri Plains is an intimate 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 and leopard.

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. Its stunning location also affords front-row seats to nature’s most dramatic spectacle between October and May – the Wildebeest Migration – when hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra make the annual pilgrimage 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 or lunch in the bush, or enjoying a sundowner drink and snacks in a breath-taking setting.

Namiri's elegant tented suites deliver sweeping 360-degree views of the Serengeti plains. Each spacious suite is beautifully designed and feature glass sliding doors that run the full length of the room and open onto a large private viewing deck. Each tented suite is constructed from the area's natural calcrete, which not only assists with regulating the inside temperature but also ensures the rooms are in harmony with its natural surroundings. Your en suite bathroom's shower provides full views of a seasonal riverbed, while the bathtub on your private deck delivers an incredible panorama of the plains.

Facilities

At Namiri Plains the focus is strongly on the majesty of the environment and its animals, which helps give it its wonderfully natural feel and ensure an unfiltered African wilderness experience. The communal mess tent is set at the centre of the camp where you enjoy your meals – unless out on a game drive – and you are invited to relax and enjoy the views overlooking the captivating Serengeti plains. Head to Asilia Spa for a rejuvenating massage or treatment, a wonderful indulgence to compliment your safari.
