Tanzania Kusini - Game drives

GAME DRIVES

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.


Tanzania Kusini - Cosmic Safaris

COSMIC SAFARI

Most visitors come to Africa looking for the wildlife and the beauty, yet one of the most spectacular sights of all is hardly ever mentioned - the African night sky, offering some of the best star gazing in the world. In the evening after dinner, sit on a comfortable cushion up on top of the main kopje or around the campfire and allow the camp manager to uncover the universe. With a green laser pointer to show you the way, embark on a walk through the stars where you can look back millions of years in time and get lost in the beauty of the night sky.

 


Tanzania Kusini - Cheetah watch project

SERENGETI CHEETAH PROJECT

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".
