Kusini is located in the South Central area of the Serengeti National Park. The park covers more than 14,763 sq. kilometers, making it one of the world’s largest wildlife sanctuaries. The name Serengeti comes from the Maasai language meaning “endless plains”.

Part of Kusini’s charm is its remote and private location within the park borders. With no other camps in the near vicinity, Kusini offers exceptional and essentially private game viewing.

Accommodation is offered in twelve double tents, each attended by a personal butler, which are scattered around the main Kopje. Each tent has en-suite facilities and hot running water. Private balconies with comfortable furnishings extend in front of each unit. The dining area, lounge and library are housed in the main public area, which affords spectacular views from its wooden deck.

It is built in the style of a classic East African safari camp, with the suites and lodge areas decorated as a throwback to the timeless Colonial era.

Greystoke, Mahale

The slopes of the Mahale Mountains rise behind camp, home to the worlds largest known population of chimpanzees. Within hiking distance is one such group of 60. Every day you venture out into the forest to observe our closest relatives, as they groom, wrestle and forage across the leafy floor.

As you make the approach to Greystoke by dhow, the outline of the camp is visible against a backdrop of deep green forest and pale beach. The focal point of Greystoke is the bar and dining area rising up from the sand and loosely modelled on traditional Tongwe architecture

Your home at Greystoke Mahale is in wildly exotic wooden bandas looking out across the beach, with interiors fashioned from seasoned dhow timber. The six-suites are open-fronted, with adjoining bathrooms, and upstairs chill-out decks, designed for the most demanding castaway.

Chada, Katavi

Hidden in the trees that flank it are six guest tents, with fine wooden furniture, and large comfortable beds spread with crisp white Egyptian cottons, and floors covered with thick woven rugs. The tents are large, romantic and airy with many shade netting windows to allow the cool breezes through. The bathrooms are bush deluxe, and set just behind each bedtent. And to cap it all, the thoroughly good white wine sitting on your porch table is perfectly chilled.

Although supremely comfortable, the camp neither intrudes upon nor detracts from the majesty of the place itself. Wickedly indulged, watching the elephants head out to water as dusk falls, you feel like one of the great pioneers; with binoculars in your hand, and Africa filling your head.

Sand River , Selous

Discerning travellers consider Sand Rivers to be one of the finest lodges on the continent, with its unique blend of timeless safari elegance combining with the rigours of a genuine bush adventure. Sand Rivers is set on a rocky peninsula with magnificent views over a vast sweep of the Rufiji river, its exposed sandbanks home to hippo, crocodile and spectacular bird life. The lodge is small but perfectly formed; the cottages are grand and open fronted, the mess imposing, the cooking excellent, and the service excellent.

There are eight large, airy double, or twin-bedded cottages, each with its own spacious bathroom with flush toilets and powerful showers. Beds are four-postered. Each cottage is completely open-fronted, with an expansive veranda set on stilts, giving a stunning and private view over the river. Lights, standing fans, and hot water are solar powered.

Loliondo, Serengeti

The Serengeti Safari Camp shadows the wildebeest migration so that wherever the great herds are you're as close to them as you're likely to get. The tents are comfortable, light and simple, but equipped with everything you might need. The bathrooms are en-suite, with traditional safari style bucket showers, short drop toilets, and hot and cold water on demand. All you have to do is arrive in camp at the end of every exciting day, to hot showers, ice filled gin & tonics, and a roaring campfire. The days end with dinner, stars, and fireside safari bonhomie.

The Loliondo Safari Camp has been created to compliment the Serengeti Safari Camp. Similar in design and concept, it operates within the Maasai concession area on the peripheries of the Serengeti National Park. Whilst the landscape and game is stunning, the emphasis is very much on cultural interaction with the Maasai. You have the opportunity for walking safaris, and night-drives. On foot this amazing landscape offers a completely different viewpoint. The Loliondo Safari Camps moves seasonally as weather and game conditions dictate. A safari linking Loliondo and Serengeti Safari Camp is the ultimate Serengeti experience.

Crater Lodge, Ngorongoro Crater

Perched on the lip of the famous Ngorongoro Crater – one of the Wonders of the World and a designated World Heritage Site. At the eastern edge of the Serengeti, and nearly three million years old, Ngorongoro is one of the most perfectly formed and certainly the most spectacular calderas on the planet. With over 40 000 predominantly Maasai pastoralists inhabiting the Ngorongoro Conservation Area it is a prime example of mankind living in harmony with wildlife.

Modonya, Ruaha

A small but great Adventure Camp, this is one of the newest and perhaps most exciting bush destinations in Tanzania. With just 11 tents Mdonya Old River is a small camp offering a personal service tailor made to clients’ needs. The dining and lounge tents are under Sycamore Fig trees overlooking the dry river bed which is used by game as a corridor, so that guests can enjoy the game viewing even while having lunch or relaxing outside their tents. Located in the second largest Game Park in Tanzania, Ruaha National Park, a few kilometres from the Mdonya Falls and an exciting 2 hour game drive from the airstrip, Old Mdonya River Camp in its simplicity, lets you feel absorbed in bush life.

The tents, each with its own bathroom, are scattered under the shade of large sycamore figs and Acacia albida. They are simple and comfortable, furnished with double or twin beds with large verandahs where one can relax and observe the wildlife around. The shower is “skylight” – quite open to the sky above, marvellous for bathing under the stars!

Three of the tents have the option of an outer bedroom with twin beds for extra family members or children.
