If you are looking for a luxurious camp in Western Serengeti at an affordable price, then this is the one! We had absolutely nothing to complain about during our stay, Our tented room was elevated on a wooden platform with a stone built luxurious bathroom. The views over the Serengeti are given on every angle of the camp and our highlight here was dinner where we got a visitor from a Genet cat. First we thought it was a Leopard as we only saw its tale. Although we didn't have the time to use the pool, we really liked the hidden location with the view and the look of the entire pool area.

This was the third time that i was able to enjoy the comforts, services, views and interactions with the staff. ALL of those are nothing but the very very best. Our cuisine was always perfect and our service at ALL levels was nothing but the very best. The staff there is exceptional, perhaps the best I have ever encountered in my world travels. Then when you experience your "tent", it is amazing! With a four poster bed, exceptional bath facilities and again the service. My wake up would be a person delivering coffee and muffins to my tent no matter the time. I cannot state enough that this is truly an amazing place and then it is placed in the Serengeti where the wildlife viewing was simply awesome.

Room Tip: ask for a tent at the edge so that you can listen to the lions during the night lying in your bed.

This tented luxury accommodation is way into the Serengeti as measured from Arusha. The reception and lobby tent is large, comfortable and beautifully done up. First impression was 'Wow'. As with other Serena properties we experienced competent, friendly, warm staff. The individual tents are sitting on wooden platforms on a hillside and each include a veranda with a view. They are well furnished and each has a private bathroom. Dinner and breakfast are served in a separate dining tent. Dinner was served by formally dressed waiters. Food was excellent in quality and choices as was the breakfast. With all that service one could forget why one is here but the animals will remind one. Getting up in the morning there was suddenly much commotion above my tent. A group of monkeys it turned out. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kirawira - Thank You.

Travelled to Kirawira Camp in December with my family of 6 and we all had a great time. Of all the Serena hotels we stayed at on our safari (4 in total), this was our unanimous favourite. We felt closer to the Serengeti, or more in amongst it - we could hear lions roaring at night (apparently they were in the car park - lucky we were tucked safely in bed in our canvas tents)! One day we were not allowed near the pool because there was a buffalo close by. We also had a herd of elephants come walking past too. Views of the western Serengeti from our balcony were spectacular. Tents were comfortable, solid floor, spacious, with a lovely bathroom. Food was also great (not a buffet like the other Serena's) and chef would have made you anything if asked. Staff wonderful, friendly, professional and a good sense of humour (especially the bit about staring down a lion if you see one…as if...I’d just run…!). Would definitely stay again.

The location of this hotel is great since it give you access to the western Serengeti. The entire camp is a tent camp, but there are features that you don't expect such as hardwood floors and granite counter tops in the bathroom of your tent. The ambience is supposed to reflect the safari days of the wealthy Europeans, and this location carries that off well. The lobby was beautiful with a fabric ceiling and high victorian furniture. The tents are on raised platforms with an external roof so they are comfortable. The beds are very nice with mosquito netting. The storage is modified old traveling trunks, but when our luggage and the computer were out, there was little room to get around the bed. There was a wonderful deck at the front of the tent which was great for looking out over the area where there were many birds. As with other truly wild area facilities, wildlife is everywhere. Outside the tents, wildlife is great, but one of our colleagues found a snake in her tent.... not so great. Dining was also in a tent at some distance from our tent. Food was good, but not outstanding. The staff was very pleasant. There was a beautiful pool and patio area which we didn't have time to try out. All in all, this is a great place to stay to enjoy a safari in the Western Serengeti.

Dear Brssjunk, Happy festive season, I hope you enjoyed your festive season. Thank you very much for choosing to stay with us during your safari trip. At the same time great to hear from you that you really enjoyed your stay and have made recommendations to anybody planning to travel to come and enjoy our services. However, we are very sorry for the few areas that we didn't meet your satisfaction, which we are happy to report to you that we take every feedback seriously and we shall work on them to make no repeat of the same to our esteemed guests in future. For snakes, we have applied anti-snake repellant just to keep them at bay. For our quality of food, we have improved our variety to suit everybody. I hope the few areas that you pointed will not spoil our good reputation and you will offer us another chance for better and improved services. Yours sincerely Kirawira Serena camp Ibrahim Ongori
