Overview of Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp

Moving between two different settings in the Serengeti, this luxurious tented camp guarantees you front-row seats to some of the most dramatic events of the annual and seasonal Wildebeest Migration. Depending on the time of year, you may see the massed herds on the move, the predator-rich birthing season in the south or what some regard as the Migration’s highlight: the river crossings. The wildebeest have to cross various rivers to move back in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve and the region’s large and powerful crocodiles have been waiting all year for them.

Whichever location you experience, the result is explosive; some of the most dramatic game viewing in Africa. This is also big game country and your guide is on the lookout for lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalo as well as the wildebeest herds. It is a good area for other predators such as cheetah and wild dog, and you view it all in a beautiful landscape of rolling grassy savannah studded with thorn trees and rocky outcrops.

Kichakani Serengeti Camp offers just 10 luxurious tents, each a blend of modern comfort and traditional safari style. The tents are very large and come with electric lighting and a private bathroom with a hot-water shower. You have your own viewing deck to relax on, complete with easy chairs and a convenient table for an iced drink or two. Completely unfenced and located on the path of the Wildebeest Migration, this exclusive camp is perfect for couples and romantic travellers as well as those who want to immerse themselves in the Migration experience.

Rooms at Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp

Unwind and relax, in your own private luxury
  • Kichakani has sleek and stylish accommodation.

    Luxury Tent

    There are only 10 tents at Kichakani Serengeti Camp, each a master class in subtle sophistication. Sleek and stylish, they are decorated in neutral shades and radiate a cool charm. A canopied double bed takes centre stage, swathed in netting, and the wooden floors are covered in rugs. Comforts include electric lighting, a fan, tea-and-coffee station and, quite unusually, a hair dryer.

    Each tent has its own en suite bathroom complete with traditional safari bucket shower; your tent attendant ensures you have hot water whenever you want. Step outside and you find a wooden deck with a pair of easy chairs and panoramic views of the Serengeti. It is not unusual to see herds of wildebeest and zebra milling around in front of camp, a view you can enjoy from the comfort of your tent.

    General Facilities

    A mobile tented camp that has been designed to leave a minimal impact on the environment, Kichakani Serengeti Camp forsakes the facilities and swimming pools of larger, more permanent lodges and features only a grand central tent with dining and lounge areas. The sides of the tent are usually rolled up to let in the unfettered views of the Serengeti, and you can order a drink from the bar to enjoy in a comfortable sofa or outside by the fire pit. The complimentary laundry service offered at camp is a nice touch and allows you to pack lightly.

    Your day begins early with a cup of freshly brewed Tanzanian coffee or tea delivered to your suite. A light breakfast before the morning drive and a hearty brunch on your return. After your game drive you will return to camp for a three-course supper, served in the dining wing of the camp or outside under the stars.

    The cuisine at Kichakani Serengeti Camp blends international flavours with local ones, including kachumbari (a traditional zesty Tanzanian salsa) and fresh spices from Zanzibar.

    'Kichakani has the destinct feel of years gone by; classic elegance combined with modern-day amenities makes for an excellent experience. Moving throught the Serengeti following the Migration, you are definitely assurred of being in the right place at the right time.Ten tents means a very personalised experience which we think is so important when visiting Africa.A clever move would be book this camp in conjunction with its sister properties - Swala, Ngorongoro Crater and Kusini - the savings are excellent and the service top drawer.'
