Kirawira Serena Camp
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 March 2014

This small tent lodge tucked away in the Western Serengeti was absolutely fabulous. The views from the tent were breath taking, the food was wonderful, and the staff was very kind and courteous. The tents were very comfortable and very nicely furnished, gorgeous hardwood floors. The main lodge was also beautiful. A wonderful place to stay.

Despite the fact that I think I have misspelled the first word...you will have 'No Worries' staying at Kirawira Tented Camp. What a delightful place! Our tent was as comfortable as home and very user friendly. Once again, escorts took us back and forth to and from the DR tent each evening and one dark morning! All meals were delicious and plentiful. Service was impeccable. Our tent had a wonderful view of the Serengeti Plain and apparently was a favourite hangout for the roaring lions, we heard each night. Next to the dining tent was a lounge where lovely, soft, live music was played while you visited and chatted with friends. Highly recommended!

The Kirawira Tented Camp is truly amazing, with superb views of the Serengeti plains, extraordinarily well appointed and tastefully decorated tents (on raised hardwood-floor platforms), top-notch service, and great food. Kudos to Serena for such a feat in such a remote bush! We stayed two nights and enjoyed great game viewing (although the end of our day was spoiled by a nasty storm). The pool is very nice too, although rather cold, owing to the altitude and pumped water. This was part of a "Serena Royal Safari", and surely the high point of our stay in Tanzania.

An excellent camp to catch the migration !
Superb setting.. excellent room
if you are luck the sighting can be right at the comfort of your room
The resident game is also very good.

However its not the ideal place if you are looking for a tented acco.

Room Tip: All are equally good !

We have an amazing time at Kirawira Serena tented camp. I & my guests went to this luxury tented camp in the western corridor of the Serengeti for our sumptuous lunch, the service was above my expectations.
The spectacular view from the lounge was amazing added something to say about the camp. will highly recommend for breakfast & lunch during day tour in the Serengeti from Mwanza.

I spent a few nights at Kirawira last May as part of a colleague's retirement trip. It was an amazing place, with great food, excellent service and a real feeling of being in the wild, with more luxuries than I could have imagined in a tented camp. As evening approached we could hear hyenas nearby, and outside our tent in the morning was a group of buffalo. Tea and Coffee were served in our tents in early morning, as the sun came up and with it all the sounds of the Serengeti.

We only spent 1 night here on our 2 week safari but everyone wished we could have stayed longer. The food was great and the staff seemed especially friendly which is saying something as all the Kenyan and Tanzanian staff tripped over themselves to serve us well. The pool was great with its little waterfall. The way the main tented lodge was set up reminded me of the way Africa was at the time "Out of Africa" was set.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad "tent" in the place.
