Nat Hab’s Serengeti Plains
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Newly built in a remote location in the less-visited eastern Serengeti, our own safari camp offers stylish bush accommodations exclusively for Nat Hab guests. The Namiri Plains area where our camp sits was previously off-limits to visitors for two decades during a period of habitat rehabilitation to increase the cheetah population. Surrounded by open range and kopjes—large granite outcrops that dot the plains—our private camp offers fabulous wildlife viewing in diverse habitats, particularly of the abundant feline predators that live and hunt in this area. It also provides exceptional seclusion, set among fever and acacia trees with no other camp in sight for miles.
Seven large walk-in safari tents built atop wooden platforms offer exceptional space, comfort and privacy. Put aside any image of what constitutes a "tent" in your mind and exchange it for a vision of a huge, airy, light-filled canvas suite that simultaneously creates a luxurious personal retreat while making you feel at one with the expansive wilderness around you. Each has a large private wooden veranda, interior personal lounge space appointed with beautiful sustainable hardwood furnishings, a sleeping area with a large and comfortable bed, and a full en suite bathroom with flush toilet, hot shower and twin basins.
A common lounge offers gathering space with contemporary flair, perfect for relaxing and convivial encounters after exciting game drives. The dining area is the scene for fine meals prepared by our talented camp chef and kitchen staff. And given our prime location where the short-grass plains meet the acacia woodlands, wildlife is abundant here, and we often spot animals directly from camp while sitting with a book or sipping a gin and tonic from the fully stocked bar. The nearby Ngare Nanyuki underground river creates pockets of permanent water that support year-round wildlife concentrations. Big cat sightings are unrivaled in this area, which is a hub for scientific research on predators,
