Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp is a well-priced addition to the Tanzania Sanctuary Collection offers a true taste of the mobile safari experience without compromising on comfort.


Plan your journey

Location

Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp moves throughout the year between three locations as it tracks the region’s herds of wildebeest. From June to mid-July, it lies in the Central Serengeti; then in the North until November, and finally in the South between December and March.

Rooms

Kichakani does not disappoint in terms of luxury. Rooms are comfortable and stylishly furnished in classic campaign style, with muted grey and brown tones. Each has a canopied double bed, private veranda and en-suite bathroom.

With ten tents available, Kichakani Camp is rather large for a mobile camp, and therefore slightly less intimate than its four- or six-tent counterparts. If it is the charm and authenticity of more safari-focused camps that attracts you rather than pure comfort and luxury, we would recommend a more purist property such as Alex Walker’s Serian Camp or Nomad’s Serengeti Camp.

Communal Areas

A large canopied central tent houses a stylish lounge and dining area, and the tent’s open sides allow the dramatic Serengeti Plains to form the background to your evening meals.

Activities

Game drives are the primary source of activity at Kichakani, particularly during the Great Migration, when thousands of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle descend across the Serengeti Plains. A huge range of birdlife and other wildlife (from lions and giraffes to hyenas) can also be tracked here. Fire-side sundowners with cocktails and snacks are offered by the camp, and are a popular way to wind down after an eventful safari experience.

‘SHOULDER’ DRY SEASON

A brief dry interlude before the long rains. The Great Migration takes place within the southern regions of the Serengeti ecosystem during this period.

Its proximity to the equator means that the Serengeti has very consistent temperatures throughout the year. While the high altitude (1,140 to 2,099m/3,740 to 6,886 ft) moderates these to a very pleasant 25°C/77°F to 27°C/80°F, the mornings can still be a little chilly, so be sure to bring a light fleece!

There are two wet seasons in Tanzania. The first, known as the ‘long rains’, takes place between March and May, while the milder short rains take place between November and December.

WET SEASON - 'LONG RAINS'

The beginning and end of the rains varies each year, but generally, this period is the wettest time of the year. Travel to and from lodges is potentially difficult at times. This wet season is often characterised by overcast skies and consecutive days of rain. During this period the Great Migration starts to make its way north towards the Western Corridor of the Serengeti ecosystem.

'MAIN' DRY SEASON

A more stable and predictable time of the year, usually with clear skies. During this period the Great Migration will gradually move into the Lamai region of the Serengeti (the northernmost point), as well as the Masai Mara in Kenya.

WET SEASON - 'SHORT' RAINS

Weather in this season can be rather unpredictable, with sunshine interspersed with occasional heavy showers and thunderstorms. Though still considered the wet season, the rains are not as intense during this period as during the long rains. November can therefore still be a great time to visit.

The Great Migration will start moving back towards the Southern Plains of the Serengeti from the Masai Mara. Given the distance involved, we tend to see a more fragmented movement of wildlife.
