Serengeti South Kusini



Home to Africa's Spectacular Wildlife

The Kusini Plains is a remote and very serene corner of Tanzania's south-west Serengeti, perfectly positioned to access the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, as well as the Serengeti National Park – two spectacular game-viewing areas encompassing high concentrations of cheetah, honey badger, golden-backed jackal, and hyena. The surrounding short grass plains provide the setting for the most spectacular natural phenomenon on the African continent, the wildebeest migration. The short rains in November and December nurture nutrient-rich pastures, sustaining wildebeest herds until the long rains end. Most calves are born in January and February. Despite the relative safety of open grassy plains, the newborns attract predators like lions, leopards, cheetahs, and hyenas, highlighting the delicate balance of life in the ecosystem. However, the crown jewel here is a secret spot nicknamed 'Kusini Crater', a circular grassy plain completely encircled by dense acacia trees, which is known for large wildlife concentrations including cheetahs.
