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.
