Namiri Plains Highlights

Namiri Plains camp was created for real safari enthusiasts seeking comfort and exclusivity in secluded surroundings, excellent guiding and a deeper, more intense wildlife experience.

To minimise the impact on the environment the camp comprises of only six tents. Pitched in the shade of giant acacias, this small and exclusive tented haven offers 360° views of wildlife crossing the surrounding plains, the river area with its perennial vegetation and dense green reed beds that attract birds and smaller wildlife species.

The migration passes through Namiri Plains from October to May and unleashes spectacular predator sightings during December and January as the resident big cats feast on the passing herds of wildebeest and zebra.

Explore the Namiri Plains on daily game drives; enjoy sunrise breakfast picnics on top of Soit Le Motonyi rock or sundowners on top of a kopje. With your nearest neighbour over 45 minutes away, you may be excused for thinking that the Namiri Plains belong to you.

Useful Information

Namiri Plains is located where the southern short grass plains meet the acacia woodland. The Ngare Nanyuki underground river creates pockets of permanent water that support year-round concentrations of wildlife. With easy prey available throughout the year there is more than enough big cat activity here and the dramatic rocky outcrops that dot the plains serve as excellent observation points for cheetah, lion and leopard on the lookout for prey.

All tents have en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets. The camp runs of solar and generator power and can provide battery charging.

Nimiri Plains Game Viewing and Activities

The rains bring The Great Migration from October to May when the eastern plains are blanketed with new grass. As far as the eye can see, the plains are filled with wildebeest and zebra. From December to January Namiri Plains is the center stage for explosive action as the big cats feast on the abundant prey. Sightings of wildebeest being brought down, voracious feeding sessions as well as the inevitable disputes between the apex and lesser predators, around the carcass, provides fascinating viewing and outstanding photo opportunities.

During the rains this area of the Serengeti is home to some of the highest concentrations of hyena in Africa and clans of up to 30 are regularly spotted scavenging on kills. Zebra, Thompson’s gazelle and eland also migrate to Namiri Plains and herds of over a hundred and more are commonplace.
