After 20 years of being off-limits to tourists, the Namiri Plains in the eastern Serengeti are now home to a staggering density of big cats. From the camp’s eight elegant tents, guests can enjoy expansive views of the wildlife congregating across the stunning landscape until, from November to June, the plains explode into action as the big cats prey on the migrating wildebeest herds.
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.
In 2014, the region reopened with Asilia appointed as its custodian. Guests can enjoy this incredible corner of the Serengeti from the comfort of cool and elegant Namiri Plains. 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.
