Namiri Plains, Serengeti


WHERE THE BIG CATS ROAM

Namiri means 'big cat' in Swahili and the name could not be more apt for a camp in this beautiful region of the Serengeti. Closed to the world for over 20 years to create a safe haven for cheetah breeding and research, today the area has an exceptional population of big cats; it is one of East Africa’s best cheetah areas.

The sun seldom dawns without cheetah gaining on prey, rarely a day passes without spotting a leopard lazing in the branch of a tree, and most nights are filled with the roar of lions. This is big cat country, and you can be one of the first to experience it once Namiri Plains opens in July 2014.

Namiri Plains is a camp for safari enthusiasts wanting bush luxury, advanced guiding and a deeper wildlife experience. This small and exclusive camp is set under fever trees with wonderful views of the sweeping plains ahead. These plains host the Great Migration from November to June as millions of wildebeest continue their endless journey for food and water. The 6 traditional safari tents have all the creature comforts you need; crisp linen, spacious verandas and home cooked food enjoyed under the African stars but leave only the lightest footprint on the environment.

Guests can explore the area on daily game drives; enjoy sunrise breakfast picnics on top of Soit Le Motonyi rock or sundowners atop a kopje. Whilst exploring, guests will feel like they have the Serengeti to themselves, which they do, in fact Namiri Plains' closest neighbour is over 45 minutes away making other vehicles an unusual sighting.

Over dinner learn more about the academic research happening in this region from the resident cheetah researcher and the various conservation projects Asilia Africa supports throughout the region.
