Namiri Plains Camp

Location: Tucked away in a grove of fever trees and offering superb views over the sweeping plains, this is an intimate tented camp situated in the eastern/central area of the Serengeti National Park. The closest neighbouring camp is located over an hour’s drive away.

Rooms:  8 elegantly furnished tented suites with sweeping views of the plains. The king-sized beds are fitted with crisp linens and the spacious en suite bathrooms have both indoor & outdoor showers.

Facilities: In the mess tent, sink into one of the elegant sofas and watch the wildlife roaming over the surrounding plains or relax in the outdoor seating area under the shade of the giant acacias. The camp chefs prepare all meals in camp and bake fresh bread, biscuits and muffins daily. In the evening, guest gather to recount the day’s adventures beside the camp fire before dinner is served in the spacious dining tent or under a glittering canopy of stars.

Activities: Game drives, walking safaris, picnics, balloon safaris. Aside from 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.

Children: Children aged 5 and up are welcome.

Our Opinion: Offering breathtaking views over the plains, this attractive camp has been created for safari enthusiasts and provides some of the most thrilling predator sightings in Africa. In Swahili ‘Namiri’ translates as ‘big cat’ and this camp undoubtedly offers superb cheetah viewing opportunities, as well as good sightings of serval, aardwolf and endangered pangolin. Crucially there are virtually no other vehicles in the area of the camp affording a first class, exclusive safari experience.
