For 20 years, the grasslands of the Eastern Serengeti were closed to tourists to allow the cheetah population to replenish itself. Today, this is big-cat territory, where cheetah roam the area in pursuit of prey, and lion and leopard hunt undisturbed.
Then, in 2014, the region reopened, but only one camp was built in the area. Guests that come with me to Tanzania can now enjoy this incredible corner of the Serengeti from the comfort of cool and elegant Namiri Plains where your closest neighbour over an hour’s drive away, you may be excused for thinking that Namiri Plains belongs to you.
The camp – created for safari enthusiasts seeking comfort and exclusivity in secluded surroundings – is elegant, contemporary and blissfully comfortable.
In the mess tent, sink into one of the elegant sofas and watch the wildlife roaming over the surrounding Serengeti plains or relax in the outdoor seating area under the shade of the giant acacias. In the evening, guests gather to recount the day’s adventures beside the campfire before dinner is served in the spacious dining tent or under a glittering canopy of stars.
Then there are the fantastic meals here… Our camp chefs prepare all meals in camp, and bake fresh bread, biscuits and muffins daily.
A morning wake up call at your tent with delivery of tea and coffee with a yummy treat will start your morning off perfectly.
Breakfast is a tempting buffet-style spread – choose from a Continental or a full English breakfast. Light, buffet-style lunches in camp include fresh salads and vegetables with your main course. Alternatively, we will frequently ask for a picnic breakfast and lunch basket to maximize your time on safari.
But at night, after a great day on safari, dinner is always a three-course silver service affair with your choice of soft drinks, coffee, tea , juice or wine.
Namiri boasts expansive views, serious comfort, exceptional privacy and unrivalled sightings of apex predators in a region of the Serengeti come together to give you an exclusive and action-packed safari experience on the Serengeti plains.
In 2018 we booked out the majority of tents of the one camp there, and spent three days where we did not see another vehicle the entire time we were there. It was like we were on our private game reserve.
In April of 2019 I am returning to the area for four days when the Wildebeest Migration will be in the area. Once again we have booked 6 of the 8 luxurious tents and are poised to repeat the success we had in that area in 2018.
Our predator sightings in that area over three days, were as follows:
Three (3) nomadic male Lions
Six (6) female lions
Eighteen (18) lion cubs
Four (4) Cheetah
Why don’t you come enjoy this corner of paradise in the Serengeti with me. For four days and three nights we will experience the Serengeti the way it was decades ago.. big cats, lots of prey, and minimal traffic... Its undisturbed and a wildlife and landscape photographers paradise.
