Sanctuary Kusini Camp


A secluded safari camp in the south of the Serengeti

Sanctuary Kusini Camp is located in the South Central area of the Serengeti National Park. It is in close proximity to Ndutu and also the Moru Kopjes. Part of Kusini’s charm is its remote and private location within the park borders. With no other camps in the near vicinity, Kusini offers exceptional and essentially private game viewing. Secluded amongst the rocky outcrops of this private swathe of paradise, Kusini's nine tents feature ensuite bathrooms with showers and elevated terraces overlooking the Serengeti plains. 

Few properties pay homage to the surrounding environment with the same breathtaking effect as Kusini, effortlessly ensuring an exclusive proximity to the Africa that you have come to see, far from the crowds that might be expected to throng to so unique a destination. Between definitive wildlife encounters and classic African adventures, you may gather for elegant candlelit meals and safari tales in the dining tent, have 'sundowner' cocktails or picturesque banquets atop a nearby kopje, enjoy tranquil siestas watching the animals that often visit Kusini's waterhole, or spend contemplative hours in the intimate library lounge, taking stock of what you have seen.

The park itself covers more than 14,763 sq. kilometres making it one of the world’s largest wildlife sanctuaries. The name Serengeti comes from the Maasai language meaning, “endless plains”. The Serengeti Ecosystem is defined by the dominant annual wildebeest migration route and incorporates areas outside of park boundaries. The area around Kusini Camp is visited by the Migration between the months of December and May but it should be noted that this is a grazing pattern and therefore experienced in the general area for this period. 

The season between January and March greets the arrival of newborn zebra and wildebeest calves. The park, and the area around Kusini in particular, is noted for its lion and cheetah populations and excellent leopard sightings. Sites such as the nearby Moru Kopjes are also renowned for good resident game, particularly cats, all year round. The woodland area fringing the short grass plains, where Kusini is located, also has high sightings of resident game including rarer species such as klipspringer in addition to some incredible bird-life.
