New Camp Serengeti Safari

posted 28th January 2018 by Danica Wilson in Work in progress

Welcome to Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp in Tanzania’s Serengeti. It is a Serengeti Camp that’s mobile, moving between three different locations across the spectacular Serengeti following the great migration.

A professional photographer went up to capture the experience when camp opened.

What you can see in the photography are glimpses of evocative pioneering explorers of the 19th century with the support of modern comforts we all grow to want and sadly expect on a holiday even in the midst of the wilds of Africa.

Kichakani is Swahili for ‘in the bush’ and that is exactly what you will experience at this breathtaking camp.

Why visit the Serengeti National Park?

Good question, we get asked this a lot especially if people are thinking about Masai Mara or Serengeti.

The Serengeti and indeed Masai Mara share biospheres, so landscapes are similar. Wildlife is resident in both national parks so you will always see animals. It is just the  famous annual wildebeest migration, with over one and a half million wildebeest and 250,000 zebra that move between the two national parks. More in Migration Safaris here.

Serengeti National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site and covers around 9175 square kilometres of grassland plains, savannah as well as forest and woodlands.  Of course the Serengeti is home to big five safaris just don’t expect it to be easy. Leopard are elusive, rhino are in small numbers found in remote areas. You are more likely to see Cheetah here and the quintessential Serengeti safari shot of cheetah on a termite mound.

You’ll also see Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelle, hyena, impala and the elusive African Wild Dog.
