WHY WE LOVE NAMIRI PLAINS
Namiri Plains was recently refurbished and is looking spectacular. This is one of our favourite regions of the Serengeti primarily because it is one of the quietest. This part of the eastern Serengeti was not accessible to tourists for over 20 years while it was closed for big cat research. As a result, it supports large numbers of big cats, primarily lions and cheetahs. Heading out on a game drive, guests are unlikely to see another vehicle for most of the drive, the closest camp being located more than 90 minutes away. The camp is open year-round, with high concentrations of resident game offering excellent game viewing at any time of the year.
The best months to view the resident game are June through September.
During this time, the migrating herds are making their way up the western corridor into the northern Serengeti and across the Mara River into the Maasai Mara. The north is busy with high volumes of tourist traffic. Namiri Plains offers respite from the crowds when combined with a northern camp.
The migrating herds are accessible from Namiri Plains from November to June. In other words, the camp’s location makes it an excellent choice for an all-round superb safari experience.
