Namiri Plains is a new camp located in the pristine eastern Serengeti known as Soit le Motonyi. Namiri means “big cat” in Swahili which is ideal as this area had been closed off the past 20 years as a cheetah sanctuary and now has the highest concentration of cheetah in East Africa. The area is also rich in other game as there is a permanent water source. Twice a year the migration of the wildebeest pass through this area on its migratory route. Namiri is the only camp in the region and the chances of seeing other vehicles is rare.
The intimate camp features six tents, including one honeymoon and one family tent, each with en suite bathroom and decorated with comfortable furnishings. The main lounge area is ideal for meeting new guests over cocktails followed by delicious cuisine. Activities include open-vehicle game drives, breakfast picnics on Soit Le Motonyi rock and sundowners on top of the kopjes. There is also the opportunity to visit a local community or participate in the Serengeti Cheetah Project (donation fee applies).
