Kirurumu Serengeti North & South Camp

Kirurumu Serengeti Camp is a great value mobile tented camp. 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. The luxury camping style ensures that you can be content in your (extremely) comfortable bed whilst simultaneously immersing yourself fully in the atmosphere of the wild Serengeti just outside your window. 

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 a large souless hotel, Kirurumu Serengeti definitely boasts the opposite. 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”. The cosy size of the camp means the attention to detail for each party is extremely high and nothing is missed by the expert team members, some of whom have been there for more than 10 years. You will also meet other guests, and it has a great sociable atmosphere with the smaller than most main area and communal sundowner fire pit.

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 and excellent game viewing at a very good price

Kirurumu Serengeti Camp - Reviews

The camp at the Serengeti ( Kirurumu)  was a real experience. We loved being out in nature and hearing the calls of the local animals, including the resident lions!  The staff was great and having laundry service was a big help.  Emanuel was an amazing guide who really added to the experience.  We even spent a day driving north and caught part of the migration!  We saw the big 5 which was a real treat, as well as many lions! Visiting the Serengeti was a trip of a lifetime.
