From its hilltop location (‘kopjes’ means hillocks), Kusini Kopjes Kambi looks out over the plains of the southern Serengeti, putting this contemporary tented camp in prime position for rewarding game viewing throughout the year. Morning and afternoon drives with expert guides take you into the heart of the drama and you can balance the vehicle-based game viewing with guided nature walks and hot-air balloon safaris, offering you the chance to see the savannah from a different perspective.
The southern Serengeti is classic big game country and an area especially noted for lions and cheetahs; it is also where the annual Wildebeest Migration enters one of its most dramatic stages. During a 2- or 3-month period, from about January to March, wildebeest calves are born here in their tens of thousands, attracting predators ranging from big cats and wild dogs to hyenas and jackals. The game viewing is exceptional during this time and offers one of the best opportunities to see predator-prey interactions. The newborn wildebeest thrive on the plentiful grazing and ample water available, and photographers will enjoy how the brilliant green scenery makes their photographs really come alive.
Kusini Kopjes Kambi blends comfort and sophistication without going over the top. The camp delivers a traditionally luxurious East African safari, right down to the vivid and cosy Maasai blanket wrapped around your shoulders as you watch the sunset. The tented suites are extremely spacious and well furnished, and feature a separate lounge and outdoor deck as well as a full en suite bathroom.
