Big Cats at Namiri Plains
Namiri Plains is the Serengeti National Park’s newest luxury camp; it is certainly one of the most exciting to open in recent years. For the last twenty years the Namiri Plains area has been completely closed to public access in order to create a safe haven for cheetah breeding and specifically allow Frankfurt Zoo to complete a focused study on the areas extremely high population of cheetah. The camp itself is of the highest quality as you can see from the photos, however, the first thing that strikes you about Namiri Plains is how remote it is. This really is classic Serengeti scenery with far stretching plains punctuated by the occasional kopje or patch of woodland. The key thing here is that this is the only camp in the area and as such this combination of classic scenery and genuine wilderness is extremely hard to beat almost anywhere else in Tanzania.
