Overview

Serian’s Serengeti Camp, Kusini, is an attractive, high-end mobile camp located within the southern reaches of the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, not far from the Ngorongoro Conservation area. A short 15-minute drive from the Serengeti South airstrip, this intimate and secluded resting-place is nestled amidst acacia woodland on the edge of the shortgrass plains where the wildebeest come in their millions to give birth to their young. The camp is open from December to May when there are high concentrations of game and predators to be seen in the area from cheetahs and hyena to jackals, honey badgers and spectacular birdlife.

The cosy mess tent houses the beautifully-presented dining table where delicious food is served. Although there is no WiFi, 24-hour generator power is provided, along with charging points for electrical devices.

With just six tents, this intimate camp belongs to the ‘Alex Walker’s Serian’ portfolio and lends itself well to family or group bookings. Each of the stylish, traditional safari tents houses a large wrought-iron bed and an en-suite bathroom with flushing toilet and bucket shower (hot water is provided).

Activities here are naturally centred on viewing the superb wildlife in both the Serengeti National Park and the nearby Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Breath-taking game-drives are the main focus, with guests occupying their own, private safari vehicle with a dedicated guide and spotter who can tailor itineraries to the needs of any particular group or family.

Children of all ages are welcome and the relaxed nature of the camp make it a great choice for families. Early meals can be arranged on request and there is a family suite comprising two separate tents joined by a comfortable communal living space. Parents sleep in one tent, up to two children in the other and a third child can sleep comfortably in the living area. With the camp’s strategic location on an ancient migratory path, animals are free to wander through and although they are unlikely to approach tents or humans, children must remain under parental supervision at all times.

The Serian Serengeti Mobile Camp, Kusini, with its elegant feel and efficient, accommodating staff makes for a wonderful stay. While it’s not an option for those on a low budget, the camp does offer high calibre accommodation combined with a seamless, authentic safari experience and a touch of luxury in a superb and truly wild location.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout

  • We had a fantastic time. Thank you and it went smoothly in the main except for British Airways!

    The trip had the right degree of luxury and relaxation (for me) and adventure (all of us).

    A few points:
    Driving directions to Umlunghi Lodge were slightly wrong. The driving directions should read at the 4th roundabout take the first exit and turn right over the railway. We loved it there. Anton, Bianca and her son and Harriet were very informative and entertaining. The snake talk and handling, night walks and seeing scorpions and the walk in the bush and "bumping" into a giraffe were really special. The kayak trip to Makuzi pan that the lodge organised was good and Tomaz was very informative and kept a respectful distance from the hippos.3 nights was plenty.

    Rhino River Lodge game reserve was incredibly luxurious and we felt very looked after. The lion siting in camp the day we arrived sent an extra frisson of excitement down our spines. It was easy to forget there were predators that could attack us with all that luxury. The staff and guides (Karl) were knowledgeable and invested in their set up. We saw rhinos with baby, cheetahs with young, porcupine, Genet, wildebeast, Impala, Lion with young, buffalo, a puff adder, ostrich, zebra and giraffes. 4 nights was also plenty.
    They all served great food but I felt Ghost Mountain Inn topped the lot. The variety was amazing. We arrived at 10.30 but could not get into our room until 2 ish. The service was not so personal I guess because it is larger (far more than 50 rooms). We had been a bit spoilt at Rhino River! My daughter and I had some treatments at the Spa and loved it. We also went on a large boat trip on Jonzi and had a closer encounter with a large bull hippo and also a hike up Ghost Mountain with Patrick who was very informative and passionate about his people and his country. Isaac the other guide there took us on the boat trip and pointed out the sugar cane harvest on the way. he was very informative also.

    Lastly, Lalaria Lodge was fabulous and we all piled into the surf of the Indian Ocean. There was hardly anyone on the beach. It was "too cold" according to the landlady. The view from her terrace was of the ocean and whales breaching in the distance. I could have sat there all day. She very kindly provided us with a Scrabble board of her own for us to play. We took a Microlight ride from Ballito over the coastline in the hope of seeing whales and dolphins but no luck. If we had stayed longer we might have gone on a boat trip from Durban. We had a meal at a restaurant called Mozambique which was great fun with vast portions, plenty of carbs and fresh seafood!

    The value of the Rand to the Pound was excellent and therefore we felt that we got excellent value which also played a large part!
