We are very excited to bring you the first photos of Namiri Plains. The 6 tents have fresh and contemporary décor, with accents of reclaimed steel and wood to keep it in harmony with nature. Stand out features include bold geometric rugs contrasted against organic, plant print textiles. Bathrooms have traditional bucket showers.
We have also had some incredible game sightings in the last weeks. A recent FAM trip saw a unbelievable 6 species of cat in 8 days. The 3 big cats; lion (95 different individuals), leopard (6 individuals) and cheetah (20 Individuals including some young cubs), were abundant, but also their smaller cousins were seen: wildcat (3), caracal (2) and an elusive serval. Namiri Plains is living up to its name as the place where the Big Cats Roam.

What makes Namiri Plains special?
- Exclusivity and remoteness – Serengeti on your own: Namiri Plains is the only camp in the area (and will be for a while) which means other vehicles are a rare sighting in contrast to many other areas in the Serengeti
- Permanent water source means unrivalled access to fantastic wildlife, especially cheetah, lion and leopard year-round
- Access to the great migration for a long period of the year (Nov-March and June-July)
- An amazing variety of Serengeti landscapes: short grass plains typical of the south contrasting with the valleys and rock formations that are more recognisable of the north
