Upgraded and refurbished in 2019, and now a significant member of Asilia’s growing portfolio of first-rate wild accommodation, Namiri Plains Camp is located in a 200-square-mile block of the eastern Serengeti.
Remote, small and situated beneath a huge Acacia tree, Namiri Plains Camp consists of a mess and 6 sleeping tents. The shared area includes a lounge, a small library, dining area, bar and veranda. A large multi-peaked tent with dropdown sides, the mess is characterised by one or two Moroccan-like carpets, a very comfortable sofa suite, side tables and a selection of well-placed lamps. The overall feel is both relaxed and appropriately elemental.
Food & service
The food at Namiri Plains Camp is excellent, with breakfast boasting a full house of fruits, cereals and cooked dishes. Lunch is either a buffet or picnic, and the evening meal is a sit-down affair: three courses and fine wines. The service, from restaurant floor to tent care to guide, is equally outstanding.
Spacious and elegant, the sleeping tents at Namiri Plains Camp are very private, and their views spectacular. Each consists of a double bed, extended viewing deck, and bathroom overlooking the plains with a standalone resin tub. Like the shared areas, the look here is simple and well-made, aiming to steer away from anything that smacks the ostentatious. Walls are made from calcrete, a sedimentary rock formed from the ashes of the Ngorongoro volcanoes, which helps to naturally regulate the temperature in the rooms. Additionally, Wi-Fi is accessible across the camp.
Activities at Namiri Plains Camp include wildlife drives, guided walks, bush picnics and sundowners. Please note that Namiri Plains’ itineraries are very easily combined with trips to nearby Lake Victoria.
