This unspoilt area of the Serengeti is ideal for seeing wildebeest which congregate here during the calving season. The camp itself is built on a raised kopje surrounded by woodland – providing stunning views of the plains below from the main deck. Zebra, cape buffalo, lion and cheetah are a common sight year-round. The communal tent has a library, sitting room, dining room and verandah. Bush breakfasts and sundowners are served on the giant boulders of the kopje.
The twelve luxury tents are shaded from the sun by acacia trees, and all are positioned carefully with thought out views of the surrounding plains. Each tent has its own personal attendant to look after guests during their stay. Each tent has its own private wooden verandah with comfortable furniture, the ideal spot to relax for a sundowner after a hot restorative shower.
Sanctuary Kusini is designed to have minimal environmental impact, in fact the camp can be packed up and removed without leaving a trace. It is one of the great places in the world to see large predators – lion, cheetah and leopard often lie in the kopjes nearby camp. Between January and March the great migration returns to the area around Kusini and wildebeest and zebra cover the plains as they give birth to their young. The treeless plains in this area provide the perfect habitat for cheetah who have made his area of the park their permanent home. Our experienced guides know every inch of the territory around the camp and this remote corner of the vast eco-system never disappoints – buffalo, elephant, the rare wild dog, hyena and giraffe, all can be seen close to the camp. There are no other camps round here so adventurous travellers can be sure of unobstructed viewing from our customized safari vehicles. Bird life at Kusini is particularly good on the forest edge where woodpeckers and brightly coloured kingfishers can often be seen.
