Situated in a remote location, Kusini is the only permanent tented camp in the southern Serengeti. The eco-conscious lodge is built on a rocky outcrop and is surrounded by woodland, offering beautiful views from anywhere in the camp. Head out on game drives to search for the Big 5, zebra, cape buffalo, varied plains game, as well as lion, cheetah and other predators.

While the area offers excellent sightings of the Migration, game viewing here is excellent all year round. Another way to experience the sprawling savannah is on a hot-air balloon safari. When you're not out game viewing, relax in your elegant tented suite, and in the evenings, enjoy magnificent stargazing.

Luxury Tent

The camp consists of only 12 luxury tents, spaced out to provide absolute privacy and exceptional views. Shaded by acacia tree, these eco-friendly tented suites have been designed to minimise the impact on the natural surroundings. Each elegantly-appointed tent offers the services of a private butler as well as a private wooden veranda with comfortable furniture where you can relax between game-viewing activities.


Enjoy a quiet read in the library or relax in the sitting room or on the veranda with a cool drink while you take in the view.


Owing to the camp's intimate nature, meals are served either beneath the African stars or by candle light in the romantic dining tent. For something more memorable and romantic, choose to dine on a nearby rocky outcrop or at a selected location in the bush.

Afternoon tea and pre-dinner snacks have been replaced with a scrumptious all-day snack menu, offering guests a unique range of delicious delights.

Traveller Reviews

Sanctuary Kusini

Robin Schiendelman

Kusini was superb. We loved the setting with all the rocks and the rooms were rustic but had all we needed with a great 'feel'. The staff were all wonderful and the food really good. Our guide was great and had no problem making a really long drive f or us to see the large herds that had moved from the area.

Paul Freedman

Kusini was magnificent. We were the only guests there but had a wonderful time talking to Isbjorn, the manager, and our guide. The scernery is awesome and the day drive to the central Serengeti was perhaps our favourite day. Truly a hidden gem and one that should be more popular.

Laurence Pynenburg

"Kusini Lodge also was exceptionally good with a warm welcome, friendly and helpful staff and good quality food. As for our driver-guide, well he couldn"t have been better, very informative and helpful, found more wildlife than we thought possible."

Bob Atwell

"We especially enjoyed Kichwa Tembo, Kusini, and Tarangire Treetops. The Serena at Ngorongoro Crater was quite nice."

Paul & Stephanie Young

"Nothing but the highest praise for the accommodation, the food and especially for Sam and Shaun who manage the camp. A wonderful experience!"
