Namiri Plains Camp
Namiri Plains is located an hour and a half's drive due east from the game-rich core of the Serengeti – Seronera. The camp opened in July 2014 in an area that for more than 20 years had been closed to the public. Previously this region had exclusively been used for cheetah conservation and the number of big cats found here is astonishing. There are few other camps in this area and guests often get wildlife sightings entirely to themselves.
Our view of Namiri Plains Camp
Namiri Plains Camp is a breath of fresh air in the Serengeti. There's fantastic game viewing but virtually no other visitors, which is very unusual in northern Tanzania. The tents are well-designed and tastefully decorated – here, less definitely means more. There is an overwhelming feeling of wilderness and nothing distracts from the setting, which is iconic Serengeti. However, as Namiri is in high demand and has only eight tents, you will have to book a long time in advance to have any chance of getting space here.
