In a class of its own, Kirawa Camp is a highly exclusive and truly elegant tented camp set on a hill overlooking the expansive plains of the Serengeti in Tanzania. Situated on the Western Corridor, this place is the embodiment of everything the Serengeti is renowned for, with ringside seats for the annual migration of the wildebeest and action-packed safaris to view the ‘big five’, all in extreme comfort.

In detail

Replicating the hunting camps of the Edwardian era, Kirawira Camp tents are evocatively furnished with Persian rugs, antique furniture, carved rocking chairs, writing desks and sepia-coloured photographs and four-poster beds. All are raised on timber flooring and have a deck from which to view the commanding views of the savannah.

In the early morning, leave Kirawira Camp and go on a game drive to see elephant, lion and giraffe, or take a balloon safari over the plains followed by a champagne breakfast at the bush-landing site. In the evening, enjoy a ‘sundowner’ and sip cocktails while watching a scintillating African sunset.

Rooms

Widely-spaced luxury tents raised on timber platforms, each with a view of the Serengeti plains, spacious furnished deck leading to a bedroom furnished in antique Edwardian style with steamer-trunks, writing desk, brass lamps, rugs and four poster bed. The luxuruious ensuite bathroom is presented in polished mahogany and features twin marble basins, walk-in shower and separate flushing WC.
