Namiri Plains Camp
The great escape from the Great Migration tourists
Namiri Plains Camp
Leaving behind the herds of inquisitive travellers during the Great Migration is no small feat. And that is where Namiri Plains comes into its own. Open from June to April, this gem of a private camp sits in a secluded section of the Eastern Serengeti. It’s the perfect spot from which to watch the Great Migration and all the action that follows it, without compromising on privacy and authenticity. A one-hour-and-fifteen-minute drive from Seronera airstrip means you get to enjoy a game drive before you even arrive at camp.
At the lodge
The camp lies under a magnificent thorny acacia tree with a well-placed hanging chair from which to lazily survey the expansive horizons. The communal areas are well appointed with a luxurious but neutrally-coloured setup. The crackling campfire is almost always surrounded by fellow adventurers discussing the day’s mind-blowing encounters.
Namiri Plains Camp consists of eight comfortably adorned en-suite tents strategically placed to maximise the sweeping views of the Serengeti. Total bush immersion is the name of the game at this camp. The cosy decor entices relaxation while the placid colourations are in keeping with the aesthetics of a classic safari getaway. The camp area is a hive of activity and you’re never far from the action (even in your tent), so we advise you to keep your peepers peeled at all times.
Namiri Plains offers game drives and, more recently, guided walking safaris, which are used to good effect, showcasing the big cats and the great migration which move through the area. The Namiri guides are extremely knowledgeable, so try to soak up as much insider information as you can. In short, you’re in for some of the best game viewing in one of the best national parks on the planet.
