Sanctuary Kusini is one of the great places in the world to see large predators - lion, cheetah and leopard often lie in the kopjes nearby camp. Between January and March the great migration returns and wildebeest and zebra cover the plains as they give birth to their young. The treeless plains in this area provide the perfect habitat for cheetah who have made his area of the park their permanent home. Our experienced guides know every inch of the territory around the camp and this remote corner of the vast eco-system never disappoints - buffalo, elephant, the rare wild dog, hyena and giraffe, all can be seen close to the camp. There are no other camps round here so adventurous travellers can be sure of unobstructed viewing from our customised safari vehicles. Bird life is particularly good on the forest edge where woodpeckers and brightly coloured kingfishers can often be seen.

Wildlife HighlightsWildlife Highlights

The Serengeti is of the best places to see large predators and at Sanctuary Kusini cheetah, lion and leopard lie languidly in the nearby kopjes by day. The camp's location is ideal for cheetah observation as it sits directly on the path of the seasonal cheetah movement from the central to southern Serengeti. The cheetah population here averages between fifty and eighty adults. Visitors come to the Serengeti for the big game, and this remote corner of the vast ecosystem never disappoints, where buffalo, elephant, giraffe and even rhino can be seen close to camp. Every year the Serengeti, a World Heritage site, plays host to the epic wildebeest migration. One of the highlights is the calving season, usually January to March, where one sees the arrival of newborn zebra and wildebeest take place in the plains surrounding Sanctuary Kusini.

Local ActivitiesLocal Activities

A unique activity has been developed at Sanctuary Kusini where guests can contribute to the Serengeti Cheetah Project by monitoring the cheetah of this vast national park. Venture out into this remote region of the Serengeti with your expert guide in search of cheetah. Your guide will introduce you to the cheetah's habitat and teach you how to correctly identify and photograph the cheetah you spot and record their behaviour and location. Your contribution to the project could uncover new movement patterns and aid development of conservation programs. Since Sanctuary Kusini developed the cheetah watch activity in 2009, guests have supplied valuable information on over 60 different cheetah many of which had not been seen for years. In recognition, the Cheetah Project has named one long-lost cheetah "Kusini".
