Sanctuary Kusini, Serengeti

The only permanent camp in this unspoilt and remote part of the Serengeti. There are 12 tents with elevated wooden terraces overlooking the panorama of short grass plains.

Sanctuary Kusini sits in exclusivity in a remote area of these "endless plains" of legend, affording a rare opportunity for secluded game drives well away from the normal tourist trail. Relaxed and welcoming in atmosphere, here you can make your days and nights as lively or tranquil as you wish, with or without children.  

Stay in a permanent camp that blends seamlessly into the delicate environment of the predator-rich plains of the Serengeti. One of the oldest ecosystems on earth, this is where early Man appeared. Today, witness the thundering and awe-inspiring migration of over a million wildebeest and some 200,000 zebra - and the majestic big cats that prey on them. Expert guides enhance your visit by sharing their knowledge and experience acquired during a lifetime in the bush. Luscious banquets in the wild and sundowner cocktails add even more memories. Exclusive in location, luxurious in setting and rich in experience, Kusini offers a dreamy encounter with the real Africa.  

Few holiday locations pay homage to the surrounding environment with the same astonishing effect. Your temporary home in the bush will be one of only 12 well-appointed tents with highly polished floors and elevated wooden terraces overlooking the dramatic panorama of short grass plains. Attended by a personal butler and positioned in amongst the rocky outcrops to ensure your privacy, these first-rate pavilions feature an en suite bathroom with shower and comfortable furnishings throughout. Gather for elegant candlelit meals and safari tales in the dining tent, and perhaps take a book from the library for a quiet read on the veranda - or back on your own personal deck.
