Adventure, enchantment and ‘Luxury, naturally’ - all delivered with a quiet, understated charm and understanding of place – is the guiding philosophy of Sanctuary Retreats and one of our traditional tented camps, Sanctuary Kusini.
Sanctuary Kusini is the only permanent camp in this unspoilt and remote part of the Southern Serengeti where the wildebeest migration congregates on an annual basis.
Sanctuary Kusini’s location was specially selected by our guides and local experts. The camp is nestled in a woodland area surrounded by kopje. Built around a spectacular rocky outcrop and on the path of the wildebeest migration, the camp is ideal for seeing cheetah and wildebeest that congregate on the grassy plains in the calving season from mid-December to March.
Accommodation is offered in twelve double tents scattered around the main kopje. Each extremely spacious tent has ensuite facilities with an indoor shower. Large private decking with comfortable furnishings extends in front of each tent, with views of the surrounding bush below where zebra, buffalo and lion are a common sight year-round. The tented rooms feature mosquito netting, hairdryers and in room safe. Guests also have a personal tent attendant to look after their every need during their stay.
The dining area, lounge and library are housed in the main area, which affords spectacular views from its wooden deck and the adjacent kopje. The camp also has a bush boutique for curio shop purchases. Complimentary wireless internet access is available in the rooms. Electricity supply is a combination of silent packed generator and battery system.
