Luxury Holidays At Namiri Plains Camp

For unparalleled privacy on your luxury Tanzania safari, Namiri Plains Camp nestles in a remote corner of the Eastern Serengeti, an area that, for twenty years, was closed to visitors to allow the cheetah population to replenish. Reopened and thriving, it is now the ultimate destination to view big cats. As well as housing one of East Africa's largest densities of endangered cheetah, there is a prolific population of lion, leopard and other game. Head out on complimentary game drives, walking safaris or specialist photographic safaris with local experts, while if you visit during November and June, you’ll likely glimpse the spectacular Great Migration of zebra and wildebeest. Ten spacious, newly-renovated tented suites promise panoramic plains views and all the comforts you may need, while other camp facilities include a library, research centre, swimming pool, spa tent and bustling communal dining area. With all meals included in your rate, get ready to enjoy delicious cuisine prepared fresh by the onsite chefs. Begin the day with a tempting buffet-style breakfast – including freshly baked bread, biscuits and muffins – before a light lunch at camp or gourmet picnic amid the bush. Dinner is a three-course affair served beneath the stars.
