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.

Incredible location to watch the sunrise and set over the plains. This intimate camp also offers great migration views between the months May and October, as well as great cat sightings.

Standard Tent

Tented Room

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.


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.


Start your day with breakfast consisting of fruits and cereals, followed by a hot English-style buffet. You are able to enjoy a sumptuous 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. Private dinners are available on request.
