Enjoy your stay in the area with the highest density of cheetahs in Africa. Namiri Plains offers eight elegant and comfortable tented suites in Serengeti.
Namiri Plains in Serengeti National Park
This eastern corner of the Serengeti was closed for over 20 years to allow the cheetah population to breed and replenish itself. In 2014, Asilia was given the rights to reopen this area which is also linked to an intensive cheetah research program. Consequently, nowadays this area features the highest density of cheetah in East Africa along with high numbers of lions and leopards to be seen year-round.
The camp is well situated to access the great migration routes between May and November. During the rains in April and May the area attracts the highest concentration of hyena in Africa with clans up to 30 animals feasting on their prey.
Namiri Plains provides exceptional privacy with the next camps being an hours drive away. The exclusive and intimate camp is located in a small fever tree forest overlooking the Serengeti plains and comes with 8 tented safari suites.
You will feel straight at home in the elegant, comfortable and exclusive surroundings of Namiri Plains. Gather around the camp fire in the evening and enjoy your dinner under the vast amount of stars.
