Namiri Plains is located in the remote eastern Serengeti, which was closed to visitors for twenty years in order to encourage cheetah to breed. In 2014, the region reopened with Asilia appointed as its custodian. Now it is a haven where the cheetah roam the plains and hunt their ample prey. Guests can now observe these magnificent sprinters in action as well as excellent populations of lion and leopard, who frequent the area and can often be seen resting on the rocky kopjes. Because the Ngare Nanyuki, an underground river, creates pockets of permanent water, the area also supports high concentrations of resident plains game. From October to May, the sweet grass of the savanna is a big draw for wildebeest. During the rainy season from March to April/May, the area attracts some of the highest concentrations of hyena in Africa, with clans of up to thirty that can be observed scavenging on kills.
