Sanctuary Retreats introduces new camp in the Serengeti

In December 2017 Sanctuary Retreats will launch the exclusive new Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp in Tanzania. This extraordinary new escape, based in three 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. The launch is the latest in an extensive investment programme taking place across the Sanctuary portfolio.

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. An elegant contemporary take on the classic campaign look, Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp will offer accommodation under canvas with 10 new five-star tents, all of which have been styled with distinction.

Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp will open on 2 December 2017 in the Southern Serengeti and will replace Sanctuary Retreats’ current Sanctuary Migration Camp offering. The camp will be located in Southern Serengeti (2 December 2017 – 31 March 2018), Central Serengeti (26 May 2018 – 15 July 2018), and Northern Serengeti (29 July 2018 – 15 November 2018).
