Sanctuary Kichakani Camp is a luxury mobile tented camp that moves with the wildebeest migration herds throughout the year. Positioned in the Western, Northern and Southern areas of the Serengeti, this camp offers a fantastic quality of guiding and game viewing experiences, along with comfortable and spacious accommodation in the heart of the plains. However, offering one of the lowest prices among its competition, it is extremely popular so availability may be the downside!


Sanctuary Kichakani Camp is a mobile tented camp that moves between three locations throughout the year to follow the wildebeest herds. The camp is located in the Central Serengeti in the months of June to mid July, in Northern Serengeti from late July to November and Southern Serengeti from December to March.


Translating as "in the bush" in Swahili, this camp is made of 10 luxury safari tents. The rooms are each ensuite and offer a bucket shower, which can be filled with hot water by your very own personal tent attendant. The tents are beautiful in design - we think it's a combination of 'Out of Africa' meets modern "chic". The main mess areas of the camp comprise of a lounge and dining area and a bar - all under a central canopied area with soft and elegant lighting and African art.


Although the camp is a mobile tent, it certainly does not lack in luxury! The rooms all well-appointed, with simple furnishings, large double or twin beds and an ensuite bathroom. The bathroom has running water, flushing toilets and bucket showers, an authentic way to get stuck into the safari experience!


As the camp moves with the wildebeest herds, staying at Sanctuary Kichakani Camp gives you the best opportunity to see this incredible spectacle. Year round, the Serengeti offers a wealth of game aside from the migration too, which can be seen from game drives during your stay. The camp offers sundowners with canopies and house drinks to the guests in memorable locations bound to impress!

Great location as it moves with the herds, great value for money

The price is attractive... availability may be tricky!!
