This is a nice but funky themed place. In the middle of no where - surrounded by lions and other wild animals- they have created a little tented village with extremes harking back to the British Empire. Marble counter tops in the toilets, toiletries from London, British furniture, waiters dressed more as servants than servers, silvery cutlery, fine china and porcelain. It's all rather like a weird sort of reality Disneyland. The service was great. The people were nice. We enjoyed the pool area. The west end of Serengeti park has fewer tourists and more animals. We stayed two nights. On the first night at 3.25 am a lion attacked and killed a zebra in front of our tent. The two park rangers stationed at Kirawira (they pack guns) were scrambled To control our safety. When we emerged from the safety of our tent hours later there was still a security guard posted in front of our tent holding vigil. Lions occasionally use the swimming pool to get drinks during the dry season.
