Namiri Plains in Serengeti National Park: Set on the sprawling plains in the eastern Serengeti, Namiri Plains enjoys a remote location. With 10 stylish tented suites and one family tent, your stay here is a luxurious one of indoor/outdoor living.Namiri Plains is positioned along the Ngare Nanyuki River in the eastern Serengeti. The vast grassland plains are mostly open, aside from the occasional acacia tree. The hard calcrete layer beneath the topsoil prevents many trees or shrubs from growing here.
As it’s one of the few locations in the eastern Serengeti with permanent underground water sources, game viewing is excellent. The seasonal riverbed is where plains game, such as zebras or reedbuck, come to quench their thirst, making it an ideal spot for viewings. It’s no surprise that predators have cottoned on to this, too. Keep an eye out for lions lurking nearby, ready to ambush their next meal.
The short grass of this area makes it popular with cheetahs, who can more easily chase down their prey. It is particularly gratifying to see cheetahs here, as this part of the Serengeti was closed for around 20 years to allow the population to recover. It’s now a haven for these big cats, as well as lions and a few leopards.
The migration heads toward Namiri between October and May. During this period, you may see the plains covered in wildebeest, gathered here to feast on the lush grass.
Namiri Plains was completely refurbished and upgraded in 2019. The new stylish tented suites are spacious and open completely on one side to offer views of vast Serengeti grasslands. In addition the camp has a pool and dekc, as well as a library and fascinating information center. The grasslands around Namiri are vast and unspoilt, thanks to the time they spent off-limits to tourists. Whether you choose to explore the surrounding Serengeti on foot or by air, or if you prefer to spend some time relaxing in camp, there is plenty on offer at Namiri Plains.
