[I always read previous reviews before posting my own, so to hear a complaint like bad WiFi and flies?! You are on VACATION! IN AFRICA! The other about the weak guide? Well, you should have given Van and Esmerelda the chance to fix it - which you acknowledge in your comments - but you didn't. Being in hospitality I can...

Arrival: Not letting that cat out of the bag but it is special Tents: Luxury Glamping. Lots of room and right in the forefront of the wild life. We had a kill right beside us and it was close to the highlight of our trip. Sleep quality depends on the wildlife. You snooze you might lose. Food: Breakfast varied but...

Sanctuary Kusini permanent tented bush resort in the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, is simply amazing, certainly one to cross off the bucket list. Our initial host, Moses was extremely helpful and polite. Nothing for him or his staff was her too much trouble. This was equally true of Van and Esmeralda when they took over as camp managers.

We spent two wonderful, most memorable days just around Kusini Camp off road Safari hunting finding 3 Cheetahs and a magnificent big large male Leopard! Wildlife was abundant the Thompson and Grant Gazelles, Giraffes, Hyenas, Wild Ostriches, etc. The only downside was an inconsistent, hard to connect WiFi connection that had a Firewall block. They had a request for new...

Kusini is absolutely stunning, the camp, the staff, the food and the area! Kusini is in a remote part of the Serengeti, so it’s likely you won’t see another vehicle whilst here! Let me start with the rooms, beautifully appointed and so comfortable. You have everything you need. Nice big comfy bed, double sinked bathroom, hot water all day and...

My wife and I had a wonderful, unforgetable trip to Tanzania's southern Serengeti plains at end-September 2016 (towards the end of the dry season). We both thoroughly enjoyed every moment. It was the realisation of a 50+ year dream for me. Abercrombie and Kent arranged the international and domestic flights, transfers, accommodation and game drives. We stayed at the wonderful...

What a fantastic experience. Charlotte and Isbjörn were remarkable..be very hard pressed to find a couple who manage camps with such skill and friendliness elsewhere.The tents were fabulous and resident Buffalo chomping outside the tent at night and lion grunting......made one feel at home in the heart of East Africa. The setting in the camp is so removed from other...

Surrounding Location and wildlife: Although the migration was not AT the camp while we visited, it was quite near. There is plenty to see in the surrounding area including leopards, lions, and tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebras, with PLENTY of babies being dropped as far as the eye could see (Feb.18-19-20). There are forrest and plains in the...

Amenities

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Part of Sanctuary Kusini's charm is its remote and private location within the park, offering exceptional and essentially private game viewing. Built around a spectacular rocky outcrop, or kopje, the camp's communal areas include a dining area, lounge and library, as well as a campfire. The views from the kopje are simply sensational - the perfect spot for sundowners and stargazing. The library is stocked with reference books to read up on the day's discoveries, and of course, our experienced guides are always on hand to fill in about local knowledge where books cannot. Like all Sanctuary properties, Sanctuary Kusini is designed to have minimal environmental impact, in fact the camp can be packed up and removed without leaving a trace. The open-plan ensuite twelve tents at Sanctuary Kusini are shaded from the sun by acacia trees and all are positioned carefully with thought out views of the surrounding plains and extremely spacious at 48 square metres. Each tent has its own personal attendant to look after guests during their stay and feature mosquito netting, hairdryers and in-room safe. A large private wooden veranda with comfortable furnishings extends in front of each tent, with many having views of the plains below where zebra, buffalo and lion are a common sight year-round, the ideal spot to relax for a sundowner after a hot restorative shower. ... more   less
