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.
