Asilia Africa to open Namiri Plains on the 1st July 2014

To mark their 10th birthday Asilia Africa will open their new Serengeti Camp, Namiri Plains, on the 1st July. Set in an area of the Serengeti which was closed to outsiders as a cheetah sanctuary for over 20 years, this is one of the Tanzania’s best kept secrets.

Namiri means ‘’big cat’’ in Swahili and the name could not be more apt for this beautiful region of the Serengeti. Closed to the world for over 20 years to create a safe haven for cheetah breeding and research, today the area has an exceptional population of big cats including the highest density of cheetah in East Africa.  

Namiri Plains Camps is set in a small fever tree forest with uninterrupted views of the sweeping plains ahead. Guests will have the opportunity to learn more about the academic research happening in this region from the resident cheetah researcher and the conservation projects Asilia Africa supports.
