Namiri Plains Camp, Bariadi, Tanzania

After 20 years of being off-limits to tourists, the Namiri Plains in the eastern Serengeti is now home to a staggering density of big cats. The camp overlooks a river, and from its ten elegant tents – each with its own veranda and private outdoor bath – guests can enjoy expansive views of the wildlife that congregates at this water source. When the Great Migration moves into the area, the plains explode into action as big cats prey on the herds.

In 2014, the region reopened with Asilia appointed as its custodian. Guests can enjoy this incredible corner of the Serengeti from the comfort of the cool and elegant Namiri Plains.
