‘Uninterrupted Game Viewing’
The only permanent camp in a remote area of southern-central Serengeti National Park, Sanctuary Kusini provides excellent game viewing. Due to its secluded setting, abundant wildlife can be discovered without disruption. Early morning, late afternoon and full day game drives are led by expert guides in customised vehicles, whilst hot-air balloon safaris fly over the plains and unveil the annual migration from above. Through the Serengeti Cheetah Project you can assist in monitoring the park’s cheetahs by identifying, photographing and recording the behaviour of these fascinating animals; with the Spa’s range of treatments you can unwind afterwards. Shared areas include a cosy lounge, library and dining area where three course meals can be enjoyed. Twelve open-plan tents are stilted around a cluster of kopjes under the shade of acacia trees.
In Our Opinion‘A high level of luxury can be found at this camp which resides in the path of the great annual migration.’
Designed in an open-plan style, tents each come with their own personal attendant and flow out to a private veranda with comfortable seating overlooking the plains below.
Guests at Sanctuary Kusini can enjoy game drives, cosmic safaris and hot-air balloon safaris.
Led by highly qualified guides, game drives are carried out in customised open 4x4 vehicles and can be enjoyed either in the early morning, late afternoon or as a full day. Due to no other camps being in close proximity to Sanctuary Kusini, guests can experience unobstructed game viewing; including the annual great migration which takes place between January and March.
Hot-air balloon safaris
A unique way to witness the annual migration, hot-air balloon safaris can take up to 16 people each time and come with a champagne and special bush breakfast.
After dinner in the evening, guests can relax on comfortable cushions atop the main kopje or around a campfire as they enjoy magnificent stargazing.
Serengeti Cheetah Project
The treeless plains of the park offer the perfect habitat for cheetahs who have made one particular area their permanent home. With the Serengeti Cheetah Project, guests can assist in monitoring the park’s cheetah through the help of expert guides who will demonstrate how to identify, photograph and record the behaviour of cheetahs. This information may then contribute to uncovering new movement patterns and aid the development of conservation programmes.
