Tired, I hate to review this but I feel compelled to let others know what to expect. Compared to other tented camps, this was our least favorite. It is dated, the bed springs poked through, and the food was very meh. Dinner entrees consisted of a protein, white rice and five pieces of steamed vegetables every night. Lunch and breakfast boxes were horrible.
Kirawira Camp is a magical place that transported us back in time by a hundred years. It conjures up images of PG Wodehouse’s Bertie Wooster and Jeeves on safari. The tents/rooms are well appointed with antique furniture and lights from the 19th century. Yet they have all the comforts needed to enjoy the stay, including a welcome bottle of champagne. The tent’s bathroom is, again, luxurious but looks like it could have come from the Orient Express. The porch in front of each tent offers a view over the vast plains. The service is impeccable, the staff very friendly, and the food excellent. On our game drives, we saw zebras, wildebeest, lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, ostriches, hyenas, warthogs and more. Altogether a wonderful experience.
We stayed here as a family for 2 nights while out in the Serengeti with Easy Travel. This is definitely a unique experience, especially as it’s a bit further out and with just about 25 tents/rooms. The staff arranged a wonderful bush dinner, which was a highlight of our trip. Generally as others have said, the lodgings are very good but the meals could use a bit more variety if you end u staying at more than 1 Serena lodge. Note- laundry service was same day and was quite good!
We stayed 4 nights here and the rooms were very comfortable in a tented style with great views of the Serengeti and nice to hear the wildlife noises around us . It’s a reminder of colonial style of the 1920’s The staff are all lovely especially Grivin and Daniel who made our stay special and they are all very attentive to the guests needs . The downside is the food as there’s a set menu every evening and not much variety and no Tanzanian dishes .This seems to be the same in all the Serena lodges. Breakfast was very good and packed lunches need variety. There is possibility to get a massage by the lovely masseuse who did a great job Coffee and tea trays in the room were there
Stayed here for a long weekend. Beautiful luxury tents with wooden bathrooms And floors takes glamping to a new level. Lovely a la carte menus every night and good packed lunch for our game drive. Stunning pool and splash pool with a very helpful waiter, Joshua, ready to bring ice and cold drinks. Not overcrowded and the staff are professional and polite. Rooms are Kept clean with staff turning down beds and mosquito nets. Water plentiful but pleaswd to see waste water is recycled. All in all an excellent lodge, thank you.
Kirawira Serena Camp is by far the height of luxury when staying in the Serengeti. The lodgings consist of "tents" on raised wooden platforms with private balconies overlooking the Serengeti, and the interior includes such comforts as real, running showers, a four-poster bed, and proper desk and dresser. Given that Kirawira Serena Camp is located at the top of a hill, the views are unbeatable. The facilities include a pool and jacuzzi, a fire pit, a main tent with an old-world glamour feel, and a dining tent. The food was sophisticated and delicious, and everyone was exceptionally polite and eager to accommodate any requests we had. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend staying here!
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.
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.…
