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.
