Located in a remote corner of Eastern Serengeti, working with a conservation initiative to protect cheetah and big cats, and beautifully refurbished in 2019, this camp and location have a lot going for it.

After many years of being closed, this area of the Serengeti reopened in 2014 and the safari company that owns Namiri is the only one that’s allowed to operate meaning total privacy and exclusivity.

About Namiri Plains

Leaving behind the herds of inquisitive travellers during the Great Migration is no small feat - and that’s where Namiri Plains comes into its own. Open year round, this sophisticated hideaway sits in a secluded section of the eastern Serengeti with not another camp or tourist in sight. And now, five years after the original camp was opened, it’s been given a stylish overhaul – think seamlessly-moulded calcrete rooms, a natural and perfectly soothing colour palette, and fabulous alfresco bathtubs. Truly the perfect spot from which to watch the Great Migration and the infamous big cats of the region without compromising on privacy and authenticity.

Location & Wildlife

Namiri Plains is positioned along the Ngare Nanyuki River in the Eastern Serengeti. As it’s one of the few locations in Eastern Serengeti with permanent underground water sources, game viewing is excellent. The short grass of this area makes it popular with cheetahs & big cats. While exploring the grasslands close to Namiri Plains, you might be fortunate enough to come face to face with one of the most beautiful and unique wildcats – Manja, the melanistic serval; quite the celebrity in the Serengeti and has been featured globally by the likes of BBC Earth and The Discovery Channel. The migration heads toward Namiri between October and December. During this period, you may see the plains covered in wildebeest.

Rooms at Namiri Plains

Namiri has 10 ensuite tents, all strategically placed to maximise the views. Bush immersion is the name of the game and the soothing decor invites total relaxation – aided by the outdoor bathtubs and enormous, shaded verandas. The area around the camp is a hive of activity and you’re never far from the action (even in your tent), so we advise you to keep your peepers peeled at all times.
