Kirawira Luxury Tented Camp
Close to the Grumeti River, famed for its giant crocodiles, perched on a hill with uninterrupted views of the plains of the Western Serengeti, Kirawira Camp offers its guests a luxurious tented African safari. Kirawira is a reincarnation of a Victorian tented camp and guests enjoy luxurious accommodation, a valet service, superb house cuisine, fine wines and the best of East African hospitality.
Throughout the camp, native wood, African art and tented canvas are combined with typical Victorian and colonial furniture to recall a bygone era of explorers, pioneers and the early colonial settlers. The accommodation is housed in de luxe individual tents set on wooden platforms. Each has a spacious double bedroom and bathroom, styled from the Victorian period with African art, and a private verandah from which there are spectacular views over the endless Serengeti.
Lunch in the Camp followed by an afternoon at leisure to enjoy a swim in the Camp swimming Pool or opt to enjoy breath-taking views of the plains from your tent deck.
1600hrs enjoy an afternoon game viewing drive before returning to the lodge in time early evening.
Dinner and Overnight at the Kirawira Luxury Tented Camp
Enjoy breakfast in the Camp. Two full days of game viewing drives in the Park. Vast and sensational, the Serengeti covers 14,763 sq km of endlessly rolling savannah plains, and is Tanzania’s first-established, largest and most famous park. Here, twice a year, propelled by the rains, 1.3 million wildebeest, 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle gather to undertake an 800 km trek to new grazing lands. The precise timing of the migration varies but generally the herbivores congregate and move out at the end of May, sometimes over a period of weeks, sometimes over a period of as little as three or four days. Heading west on a roughly triangular 800-km circuit they head to the Masai Mara National Reserve of Kenya. When the grazing here is exhausted the tide of herbivores turns and reverses its progress returning to the short grass plains of Tanzania.
All meals and overnight at the Kirawira Luxury Tented Camp.
