The only permanent camp in the Serengeti’s remote south, Sanctuary Kusini has the privilege of overlooking predator-populated plains where game viewing is in high-definition throughout the calendar.
The main lodge is set around a cluster of spectacular kopjes — rocky outcrops — so at Sanctuary Kusini you don’t just have front-row seats for when the Great Migration passes through at full throttle, but you can ogle game congregating on these grassy plains year-round.
SERENGETI CHEETAH PROJECT
A unique activity has been developed at Sanctuary Kusini where guests can contribute to the Serengeti Cheetah Project by monitoring the cheetah of this vast national park. Venture out into this remote region of the Serengeti with your expert guide in search of cheetah. Your guide will introduce you to the cheetah’s habitat and teach you how to correctly identify and photograph the cheetah you spot and record their behaviour and location. Your contribution to the project could uncover new movement patterns and aid development of conservation programs. Since Sanctuary Kusini developed the cheetah watch activity in 2009, guests have supplied valuable information on over 60 different cheetah, many of which had not been seen for years. In recognition, the Cheetah Project has named one long-lost cheetah “Kusini”.
