Namiri Plains opens in the Serengeti 1st of July 2014

March 3, 2014 East Africa Bush Tails
We are excited to announce that our new Serengeti Camp, Namiri Plains, will open on the 1st July. Set in area of the Serengeti which was closed to outsiders as a cheetah sanctuary for over 20 years, this is one of the Serengeti’s best kept secrets.

Namiri means “big cat” in Swahili and the name could not be more apt for this beautiful region of the Serengeti. Closed to the world for over 20 years to create a safe haven for cheetah breeding and research, today the area has an exceptional population of big cats including the highest density of cheetah in East Africa.

Explore the area on daily game drives; enjoy sunrise breakfast picnics on top of Soit le Motonyi rock or sundowners atop a kopje. Whilst exploring, you will feel like you have the Serengeti to yourself, which you do in this secret corner of the plains. Namiri Plains’ closest neighbour is over 45 minutes away making other vehicles an unusual sighting. Back in camp learn more about the academic research happening in this region from the resident cheetah researcher and the conservation projects Asilia Africa supports.

We look forward to welcoming you to Namiri Plains!
