Namiri Plains is a luxury lodge located on the Ngare Nanyuki underground river in the exclusive eastern section of the Serengeti National Park.

Namiri Plains has a super location in a relatively exclusive area of stunning open plains in the Eastern Serengeti which was previously closed to the public for predator research. Recently upgraded to become a genuinely luxurious tented lodge, the suites are spacious and nicely spaced out along a small river course. The central areas are cosy with the attentive staff always on hand. Being owned and run by Asilia Africa, there is an element of corporate consistency, yet Namiri is still very much an individual property. You can visit Namiri as a migration experience from December to April, though you might often combine it with a second camp in the southern Serengeti (Ndutu or Kusini regions) in order to cover more ground. However, Namiri can also be considered as a lovely Serengeti experience all year round. The lodge is excellent, but it is also the location of the property which is exciting.


Accommodation is for a maximum of 22 guests in 10 spacious tented suites which have views of the river marsh or the open savannah plains and beyond. Atop the sedimentary rock-walled suites is a large marquee canvas roof…
