Namiri Plains

Feefo logo


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.

Tented Room

The camp’s eight traditional safari tents are well spaced and offer creature comforts such as crisp linen, flush toilets and hot-water indoor and outdoor showers. The magnificent Hemingway-style canvas homes include family and honeymoon suites.


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. The camp offers a complimentary laundry service and solar power ensures there is 24-hour electricity.


Start your day with breakfast consisting of fruits and cereals, followed by a hot English-style buffet. You are able to enjoy a sumptuous picnic lunch, which is prepared with only the freshest ingredients and always accompanied by homemade bread. Dinner is a 3-course affair enjoyed as a group in the mess tent.
