Vast and sparsely populated, Tanzania hosts some of the greatest wildlife experiences on Earth – making it the perfect choice for a safari holiday.
From the snowcapped summit of Mount Kilimanjaro to the game-rich Ngorongoro Crater, from the endless plains of the Serengeti to the baobabs of the Tarangire, Tanzania is the safari insider’s hot tip. Boasting 14 national parks and numerous game reserves, this is home to the largest wildlife herds on the African continent, as well as the palm-fringed island of Zanzibar, perfect for some post-safari relaxation.
Sanctuary Retreats operates several camps in the Serengeti and Tarangire National Parks, providing a front-row seat to Tanzania’s spectacular wildlife.
According to Michael McCall, Sanctuary Retreats’ Director of Sales Australia, NZ & Asia, Sanctuary Kusini offers the Serengeti safari experience. “This is the only permanent camp in this unspoilt and remote part of the Serengeti,” he says, “And every year wildebeest congregate on the camp’s doorstep.”
Set in the remote southern part of the Serengeti, McCall says Sanctuary Kusini’s location was specially selected after extensive research by the company’s guides and the local experts. “The Camp overlooks the plains where game is a common sight pretty much all year round. It’s also built around a spectacular rocky outcrop and on the path of the wildebeest migration, which makes it ideal for seeing the cheetah and wildebeest that congregate on the grassy plains nearby in the calving season from mid-December to March.”
