Luxury safari specialist Sanctuary Retreats has introduced the exclusive new Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp, opening in Tanzania this December.
Kichakani is a Swahili word meaning ‘in the bush’ and this elegant and contemporary take on the classic camp style will be based in three set locations across the Serengeti, offering guests a front row experience of the wildlife movement during the annual migration season.
The stars of this seasonal path are wildebeest, zebra, Thomson’s gazelles, and the predators that this migratory journey attracts. The Serengeti is known for having the Big Five; cheetahs are a highlight, along with wild dog, giraffe, waterbuck and impala.
Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp will offer ten luxury tents, which can be packed up and moved along in a style evocative of the pioneering explorers of the 19th century, yet with all modern comforts.
Handcrafted luggage, easy chairs and characterful cabinets and desks, have all been designed to be perfectly portable and to leave as little impact as possible on the environment.
Each five-star tent has a personal attendant and a private wooden deck on which to enjoy a just-brewed cup of Tanzania’s finest coffee, while en suite bathrooms feature authentic bucket showers. For more energetic guests, gym and yoga kits are provided for workouts in the natural and peaceful surroundings.
In addition, the camp will also feature a central canopied main tent with lounge and dining areas which can be opened on the sides offering incredible views out over the surrounding landscape.
Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp will open on 2 December 2017 in the Southern Serengeti, and will be located in Southern Serengeti (2 December 2017 – 31 March 2018), Central Serengeti (26 May 2018 – 15 July 2018), and Northern Serengeti (29 July 2018 – 15 November 2018).
