This extraordinary escape, based in two set locations across the Serengeti, invites guests to intimately experience the movement of a million-plus wildebeest and zebra as they follow the fresh grasses across the Serengeti plains during the annual migration cycle.
Being a part of Kichakani — translating from Swahili as ‘in the bush’ — means staying in remarkable luxury tents which can be packed up and moved along in a style evocative of the pioneering explorers of the 19th century, yet with all the modern comforts. Handcrafted luggage, easy chairs with an air of mid-century modern, and characterful cabinets and desks, have all been designed to be perfectly portable. This considered modern collection of first-class furniture brings the charm of centuries-ago safari living bang up to date.
The camp is an elegant contemporary take on the classic campaign look – Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp has just 10 beautifully furnished under-canvas tents. Each tent has a wooden deck and ensuite bathrooms with safari bucket showers. A personal tent attendant is available around the clock to fill your bucket shower to the perfect temperature.
The main guest area is made up of a central canopied area where the main tent flows into lounges, dining wings and a bar – all with sides that can be opened to enjoy views over the Serengeti.
Meals are prepared by the camp chef – enjoy international flavors alongside kachumbari (traditional Tanzanian salsa), coconut beans, paprika, cinnamon and chili from nearby Zanzibar.
The whole sand-colored canvas constructed camp is designed to be moved ensuring the camp has little impact on the environment.
