Although Kirawira is a tented camp, it is not your typical small and personal safari camp. Being owned by the Serena chain it is larger than most but it also offer a fine level of service and quality and in most cases, better than the larger lodges in this category. Located in the Western Corridor of the Serengeti, it gets a season passing the migration but there is also great resident game here. The tents have great views and you should be able to see the migration from your room in June and July.
Kirawira Lodge - The Facts
Kirawira lodge is located in the Western Corridor of the Serengeti, about 20 minutes from the Grumeti airstrip and about 2 hours from the Seronera area.
The lavishly tented dining area at Kirawira is laid out across dark polished teak floorboards covered with rich woven rugs and surrounded by fine writing desks and 1920s safari memorabilia. Guests enjoy a la carte meals served on a fine array of china and silver. Its hilltop position gives fabulous views across mile upon mile of the Serengeti bush all around.
The Serena connection is only really apparent at the swimming pool, for which they excel in providing individual and inviting designs, with water features and private enclaves with phenomenal views that really make the most of the surroundings.
Kirawira has captured a nostalgic, romantic atmosphere, most enjoyable as the sun sets and its many lamps twinkle to life in the African night. The camp is landscaped throughout to provide easy pathways between the 25 tents, even in the dark.
Game drives are the only activity available from this camp and if you pre-book, then you can out-source a Serengeti safari
balloon ride too. A truly spectacular destination for a honeymoon
