Namiri Plains, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Namiri Plains is a beautiful tented camp located east of the central part of the Serengeti. The camp is set in a small fever tree forest on a hillside overlooking the plains. The name Namiri means "big cat" in Swahili, significant as the location of the camp used to be closed off for cheetah research for more than 20 years. The result is that the density of big cats in this area is superb. There are just eight tented rooms here, all with plentiful creature comforts to make your stay luxurious without losing the feel of being on a traditional safari. One of the tents is a honeymoon tent and another is a larger tent to accommodate families. Guests can enjoy game drives from here to enjoy the abundant wildlife, picnic breakfasts on Soit le Motonyi Rock nearby and sundowners on the top of the kopjes.
