GLAMP IT UP IN THE SERENGETI
Go glamping in the Serengeti and watch the great wildebeest migration. Travel group Abercrombie and Kent has opened its new Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp in Tanzania this month. The new camp will be based across three locations in the Serengeti. The nine-day tour, Tanzania Under Canvas, allows guests to experience one of the world’s great wildlife spectacles. Spend three nights in the 1.5 million-hectare Serengeti where two million wildebeest, plus hundreds of thousands of gazelles and zebras, migrate in search of new pastures and water. The camp has been designed in a style reminiscent of the pioneering explorers of the 19th century, easily packed up and moved along, yet with all the modern comforts and with a minimal ecological footprint. It will offer accommodation under canvas in 10 new five-star tents, each with wooden deck, en suite bathrooms, authentic bucket showers plus a personal tent attendant. Gym and yoga kits are also standard in each tent. The camp will also feature a central canopied area with lounges and dining areas, which can open on the sides. The chef and his team will serve up a melange of international and local flavours. Guests can also enjoy the traditional fire pit. Combine this journey with A&K’s 10-day Southern Tanzania Safari to Ruaha National Park, Selous Game Reserve and Ras Kutani and receive a free flight (valued at $900 per person) from the Serengeti to Ruaha to start the safari.
