New look for Sanctuary Kusini

Sanctuary Kusini camp, the group’s only permanent camp in the Serengeti’s remote south, has undergone a redesign. 

The camp features 12 restyled, open-plan, en-suite tents with wooden floors, neutral tones and shades of green complementing the natural setting.

The camp’s communal areas include a dining area, lounge and library, as well as a campfire area. It has been built around a rocky outcrop, or kopje, offers outstanding views for sundowners or stargazing.

Activities on offer include game drives – as the area is one of the best for large predators including lion, cheetah and leopard. Between January and March the great migration returns and wildebeest and zebra cover the plains as they give birth to their young.

Sanctuary Kusini works closely with the Serengeti Cheetah Project to help monitor the demographics and activity of cheetah. Guides will introduce guests to the cheetah’s habitat and teach them how to correctly identify and photograph the cheetah spotted, as well as record their behaviour and location. Since Sanctuary Kusini developed the cheetah watch activity in 2009, guests have supplied valuable information on over 60 different cheetah.
