Kuoni has announced that its exclusive new camp, Serengeti Bushtops, is set to open on June 1st 2010 just in time for this year’s famous wildebeest migration. Situated in the north west of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, this luxury five star tented safari camp is located directly in the path of the main migration route.
Just 25km from the Mara River, access to the tented safari camp is either by road through Arusha Lake Manyara, or by air via Kilimanjaro International airport and landing at the nearby Kogatende airstrip. Connecting flights to the Serengeti National Park are also available from Zanzibar, Arusha, Dar es Salaam and Nairobi, with transfers also available between the Serengeti Bushtops’ sister camp - Mara Bushtops, a top destination for Kenya holidays.
Serengeti Bushtops has a number of specially converted 4x4 vehicles to take customers on wildlife adventures, such as off road game drives, bush picnics and hippo and crocodile spotting along the Mara River. Safaris will be offered on a private or group basis, each with experienced guides. The big draw will be the yearly migration of thousands of wildebeest which occurs between June and November each year.
To view this spectacular event, Kuoni has 12 specially designed spacious tents for guests to stay in which are open on three sides, and which benefit from wooden flooring, ensuite bathrooms, indoor and outdoor showers, a hot tub, private veranda, writing desk, small library and telescope.
Other facilities include a mess tent with views across the Serengeti, a contemporary lounge with bar, library, camp fire and wine cellar as well as internet access and a 24 hour butler service.
