Close to the Grumeti River, famed for its giant crocodiles, perched on a hill with uninterrupted views of the plains of the Western Serengeti, the Camp offers its guests a luxurious tented African experience! It is a reincarnation of a Victorian tented camp and guests enjoy 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 deluxe individual tents set on wooden platforms with a private veranda from which there are spectacular views over the endless Serengeti.
Lunch in the Camp with the afternoon at leisure.
16:00hrs Enjoy a game viewing drive in the Western Serengeti before returning to the Camp for dinner.
Dinner and overnight at Kirawira Serena Camp.
Full day in the Grumeti – Western Corridor, on the migration route. Here the migrants mix with many resident herbivores, including topi, giraffe and buffalo and a resident population of wildebeest.
It is the giant Nile crocodiles in the Grumeti river that has made this area famous. Growing up to 6 metres in length, they are inextricably linked with the great migration!
The Serengeti would not be the same without the beautiful rock outcrops known as kopjes. Also known as inselbergs, the intriguing rounded shapes of these ancient granite rocks are the result of cracking and erosion from exposure to sun, wind and rain. They provide shelter and capture water for a wealth of wildlife and plants. The main groups of kopjes are: Barafu, Gol, Maasai, Loliondo, Simba and Moru.
Moru Kopjes are outstanding for their size and profusion of resident wildlife. There are early Maasai paintings still visible at Moru, and a special rock used for making music. Gol and Barafu kopjes provide important habitat for cheetah and are used by wildebeest in the wet season. Maasai and Loliondo kopjes provide outlooks for resident lion and large cobras. Simba kopjes support a great variety of animals and birds including giraffe, baboon and lion for which they are named.
All meals and overnight at Kirawira Serena Camp.
After a leisurely breakfast in the camp, check out and drive to central Serengeti region with game viewing en-route to arrive at Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge in the early afternoon for check-in and lunch.
Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge
An award-winning gem of a lodge in one of the most beautiful settings in Tanzania. Seamlessly blended high into an acacia-lined ridge, our African style lodge and infinity pool offer panoramic views across the Serengeti’s vast, endless grasslands, where lions and cheetahs stalk their prey and massive migrating wildebeest herds darken the landscape in a relentless search for fresh grazing grounds.
After lunch you can opt to relax by the pool and enjoy the magnificent views of the Serengeti plains before embarking on a game viewing drive at 1600hrs. Return to the lodge in the early evening in time to refresh for dinner.

Two full days in Central Serengeti with morning and afternoon game viewing drive in the Park. Apart from the Selous, this is the largest of all the Parks in Tanzania, summed up as 'one of the most unique areas in the world'. The Serengeti contains the largest remaining concentration of plains game in Africa, on a scale which has no parallel anywhere in the world.
Sun-downers on the plains
On one of the evenings, you will be hosted to a Sundowner Cocktail on the plains of the Serengeti!
This activity is an essential part of safari life and dates back to the time of the great safaris of the 1920’s when elegant cocktails were always served while watching the spectacle of the African sunset. Timed to begin as the sun begins its descent, the Serengeti Sundowner begins with a gentle evening game drive, arriving at the sundowner site just as the evening sky turns gold-pink.
Usually, a campfire will be lit, a full bar set up alongside a ring of safari chairs, and cocktail snacks served while a guitarist sings softly in the background. As night falls, you will be driven back to the lodge in time for dinner. This is an experience not to be missed!!
