I stayed at the Kusini in the middle of March as a solo traveller towards the end of the annual southern migration. The site of the camp is interesting in between the rock formations with guards to escort you to and fro at night. One night there were two lionesses in camp so very grateful for the escort. The tents... More

We stayed for three wonderfiul nights at Kusini and where blown away by its location, by its food, by the friendly service and especially by our hosts, Debby and Chris.

If you are going to be in the Serengeti, I can think of no better place to lay your head down, relax, and enjoy being in this beautiful area. The accommodations are simple but elegant, and as you look out from your porch, there are baboons and other animals right in front of you. Debbie and Chris, the camp managers,... More

We stayed in five locations in Tanzania and Kenya on an A&K "Wings Over Migration" safari, and Sanctuary Kusini was probably the most special of the luxury tent camps. It lies in the Southern end of the Serengeti Park and is a relatively remote location on a hilltop. The tent-cabins are spaced well apart from one another and provide both... More
