Kirurumu Serengeti Camp

The Serengeti offering from the Kirurumu brand, Kirurumu Serengeti Camp is a great value mobile tented camp. The camp moves between Seronera and Ndutu while a second camp runs from June through to October in Kogatende. It's a very good camp in its own right but if you're looking to see Mara River crossings without blowing the budget this camp stands out head and shoulders above the rest.

Kirurumu Serengeti - The Facts 

Kirurumu takes up three locations in the Serengeti over the year, although technically there are two different camps in operation. The first camp sits in Seronera from June through to November, where the game viewing is always good. In December it follows the migration down to Ndutu for calving season before packing up for April and May and starting over again in Seronera. A second camp surfaces in Kogatende for the Mara River crossing season, which runs from June to October. This camp is then retired until June the following year.
For its price the camp is unbeatable. Although the cost is more in line with the large soulless hotels of the Serengeti, the quality of the camp is only slightly lower than the luxurious mobile tented camps that we are such fans of. While many cheaper but nice lodges keep costs down by keeping the number of rooms high, Kirurumu has just seven tents, less than several of our favourite mobiles. The tents are tastefully decorated in traditional safari style and each comes with an en-suite with sink, toilet and safari shower.
Kirurumu is owned by Hoopoe, a company we have known and trusted since our inception many moons ago. They know their stuff and have always been noted for good guiding and a carefully managed environmental impact. Kirurumu Serengeti Camp is no different, offering all of these things as well as great locations at a very good price. The Seronera and Ndutu options are great but it’s the second camp up in Kogatende that is the real find. Mara River crossings are no longer the preserve of clients with bottomless budgets.
