Found in the little known north eastern corner of the Serengeti, Namiri Plains offers a degree of privacy no other camp can provide, with the nearest human beings an hour away from the camp. This is the way the splendour of nature was intended to be experience – in solitude.
The camp’s canvas awnings hold a durable exterior, but make no mistake, this camp is comfortable and decadent in its own right. The main lounge of the camp holds sumptuous couches on which to appreciate the passing game. The dining tent and camp fires are cosy and communal, with canvas chairs placed under a giant acacia tree for shade and a dwarfing view of the land.
You deserve your comfort and each one of the 8 tents provide just that, with king-size beds, draped in luxurious fabrics and blankets to guarantee a wonderful sleep. These suites hold en-suite bathrooms with flushing toilets, hot and cold water, and indoor and outdoor showers. The canvas walling of each tent can be drawn back, allowing the grassy plains of the Serengeti in from every single angle.
Wildlife & Activities
The northern Serengeti hasn’t been extensively explored and remains a place of mystery. Add to this the fact that the eastern portion was only opened up in 2014 to the custody of Asilia, after 20 years being left alone. This was done to enable the cheetah populations to breed in the area. For these reasons, you’re bound to see healthy numbers of cheetah and possibly the other big cats on your game drive. During the Great Migration a plethora of wildebeest pass through the land, but at other times herds of eland are also a sight to behold.
Other activities include walking safaris to get you into the heart of the surroundings, bush picnics at any time of day, and visits to the local cheetah research crew. Here you’ll learn all about the efforts taken to build the numbers of these fascinating cats. Namiri Plains remains a coveted possession among guests, because no place is as remote, as quiet and as truly wild.
