We recently stayed at the Kirawira Serena Tented Camp as part of a Vantage Travel safari tour in Kenya and Tanzania. All facilities including the rooms, lodge, and restaurant were in tent-like structures. It presented the visual appearance of roughing it, except that the camp was actually quite luxurious. Our 'tent' was built into the hillside on a raised platform,... More

It was the first time we stayed in a camp which belongs to small luxury hotel group. We have stayed in total 4 hotels of Serena group this time in both Kenya and Tanzania while this is the best. Each room is a building (camp) actually. So the space is big enough for everything. It locates in the middle of... More

Out of all the Serena Lodges, this is the best. Who can say that they camped out in the middle of the Serengeti, but still feel safe. The view is to die for, especially when the sunset start, never miss that. If you are lucky, you'll get to hear the Lions roar at night or even camped out near your... More

Champagne and fresh fruit juice upon arrival, great pre cocktail drinks and the chef prepared a six course meal which could be straight out of centre Paris..and this chef came... More

We just finished a 10 Safari in the Serengeti and were disappointed with our 2 night stay at the Kirawira Serena Camp. The room was lovely, the grounds are lovely but the staff was not nearly as warm and helpful as the lovely Tanzanian hospitality we encountered at all our other camps/hotels. We are pescaterians and were very shocked that... More

We spent one night here at the end of a 7 day safari and it was a spectacular way to round off our trip. We were welcomed with cool towels and a glass of fizz both of which were greatly appreciated. The style is very much of an Edwardian hunting camp and I half expected Meryl Streep and Robert Redford... More

We visited the Serengeti in the beginning of July 2015. We gave ourselves the best chance of seeing the migration by staying at Kirawira in the Western Serengeti and then travelling by car (via the Central Serengeti) to a camp in the Northern Serengeti. The itinerary was perfect and we drove through the main heard for 2 hours on our... More

or at least that's what it felt like! This was our first camp on our safari after first spending 2 nights in Arusha then flying into the Western Serengeti to begin our adventure. What an amazing place with which to begin. The tent was awesome - beautiful view over the Serengeti and a very comfortable bed. We spent two nights... More

Of our 13 nights in Tanzania two were at Kirawira and this was our only tented accommodation. The tents were terrific with a distinct early 20th. century feel about them which we liked a lot. Bathroom facilities were very grand for a tent in the middle of nowhere. Food was very good and drinks reasonably priced given the towards top... More
