Wildlife

Location

Atop the ancient kopjes of the southern Serengeti, Kusini Kopjes Kambi is perched and poised in anticipation of another African dawn. With views from every tented suite across the incredible southern Serengeti plains, this is a property that commands attention. The elevation exercises it’s right to the cool afternoon breezes, while guests are enthralled with the dramatic sinking of the blazing sun. A lit campfire to mesmerize; a sundowner to savour in hand.

The camp itself is permanently positioned throughout the year with accessible fresh water supplies and fuelled by pure sunlight. Careful attention focusses on environmentally-friendly process for water drainage and habitat impact. Each area of the camp is linked to the next with carefully constructed wooden walkways and natural granite paths. There is over 500 million years of geological history in this area, granite rock incessantly moulded by heat and water, pre-history until today, exposing and creating the giant bubbles that we know as ‘kopjes’.

The kopjes are an eco-system within themselves, supporting many of species of wildlife. They provide protection from grass-fires, access to pooled water, holes, cracks, and caves for animals to hide, and a vantage point for predators of all kinds. Hundreds of species of plants grow on kopjes which many species rely on. The brilliance of resident and migratory wildlife sightings range from insects, lizards, and snakes, to mammals such as shrews and mice, up to large specialist mammals like lion and cheetah. There is something wonderful to see all year round.

Things to do

GAME DRIVES

Wildlife viewing and bird watching game drives within the central Serengeti are offered twice per day. Experienced guides encourage guests to see and experience the Serengeti through their eyes, sharing a world of small and large wonders that only they truly know and understand.

BALLOON SAFARI

Balloon safaris are a romantic and evocative way of experiencing the wilderness of East Africa, as you silently fly over the plains teeming with herds of wildlife in the early morning. Typically, a balloon safari begins around 6 am and lasts for around 1-2 hours. Balloon safaris (additional cost) in the Serengeti take off from designated sites in the nearby Seronera area. The safari is followed by a champagne breakfast in the bush, a fitting end to a memorable flight in the wild.

FAMILY SAFARIS

The adventure starts here! Kaskaz Camp welcomes children 6 yrs. and over. We guarantee a private safari vehicle to families of 4 more during the low season, but during high season families with children under 12 are obliged to use a private game-viewing vehicle at extra cost. Our bush guides have a wealth of insightful experience and they will fascinate you and your children with bush-wise facts, wildlife know-how, games, local customs and incredible stories of life in the wilderness.

GUIDES WALKING SAFARIS

Explore the intriguing wilderness on foot with our in-house armed walking guide; follow the tracks, smell the herds on the breeze and hear the crunch of fauna underfoot.Ideally these are at dawn and dusk, before and after the heat and stillness which prevails around the middle of the day when the animals (and most people) take a rest. Our bush guides have a wealth of insightful experience and they will fascinate you with bush-wise facts, wildlife know-how, local customs and incredible stories of life in the wilderness.
