Sanctuary Retreats Unveils New Safari Camp in the Serengeti
November 2, 2017
This extraordinary new escape, which will be based in three set locations across the Serengeti, offers guests an unrivaled, front row experience of the movement of a million-plus wildebeest and zebra as they follow the fresh grasses across the Serengeti plains during the annual migration season. The launch is the latest in an extensive investment program taking place across the Sanctuary portfolio.
Kichakani is a Swahili word meaning ‘in the bush’ and 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. An elegant and contemporary take on the classic camp style, the new five-star tents will offer distinct and stylish accommodation under canvas. Handcrafted luggage, easy chairs and characterful cabinets and desks, have all been designed to be perfectly portable. Each tent has a personal attendant and a private wooden deck on which to enjoy a just-brewed cup of Tanzania’s finest coffee whilst the ensuite bathrooms feature authentic bucket showers. Gym and yoga kits are provided for a workout in the natural and peaceful surroundings. The sand-colored canvas-constructed camp leaves little impact on the environment, casting a lighter ecological shadow.
In addition to the new safari tents, the camp will also feature a central canopied main tent with lounge and dining areas. This tent can be opened on the sides offering incredible views out over the surrounding landscape. The Chef and his team are skilled in preparing a range of international flavors which can be enjoyed alongside kachumbari (traditional Tanzanian salsa), coconut beans, paprika, cinnamon and chilli from nearby Zanzibar. Evenings can be spent gathered by the traditional fire pit exchanging stories under starry skies and listening to fascinating tales of wildlife encounters from the passionate guides.
The three set locations throughout the year are based on the migration path offering wildlife viewing from open plains, sweeping grasslands and rocky kopjes. The stars of this seasonal path are wildebeest, zebra, Thomson’s gazelles, and the many 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 open on December 2, 2017 in the Southern Serengeti. The camp will be located in the Southern Serengeti (December 2, 2017 – March 31, 2018), the Central Serengeti (May 26, 2018 – July 15, 2018), and the Northern Serengeti (July 29, 2018 – November 15, 2018).
