Year-round wildlife viewing at this restyled southern Serengeti camp 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. Look up and spy a leopard relaxing in an acacia tree, then after dusty days, escape to the peace of this charismatic camp's 12 restyled open-plan en-suite tents with their wooden floors, neutral tones and shades of green complementing the natural African setting. You can spot zebra, buffalo, lion and other characters from your large private wooden veranda, any time of the year. East African spirit, timeless elegance The rustic spirit of this intimate camp is totally in tune with local life and the magnificent East African landscapes, while the reimagined tents promise above-and-beyond luxuries. Three-course suppers are served under the stars or in the central mess tent. Drift to sleep in the tents' super comfortable beds, which have been crafted locally by hand. It's hard not to have sweet dreams when there's a soundscape made up of the sounds of hyenas and the spine-tingling sounds of the bush. Heart-stirring romance, laid-back luxury Amid wide open spaces with much to see and below star-filled skies by night, African adventures are waiting for honeymooners, anniversary celebrators with dream marriage-proposal scenarios. The name Serengeti comes from the Masai word 'Siringet' meaning 'endless plains' and Kusini means 'south' in Swahili. Hide away in your raised wooden-framed private tent, with only pristine fly
