Serengeti, Tanzania & The Kirawira Serena Luxury Camp
If Robinson Crusoe were stranded in the middle of Africa, The Kirawira Serena Luxury Camp is what I’d picture he’d build.
Located in Western Serengeti, 334km from Arusha the main climbing hub for Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Kirawira is the epitome of a classic ‘Out of Africa’ luxury safari camp.The 25 widely spaced luxury, canvas tents each sit on raised timber platforms with incredible views of the plains and Acacia trees. Victorian bedroom and bathroom furnishings are styled to replicate the elegant hunting camps of such legendary ‘white hunters’ as Denys Finch Hatton and Baron Bror Blixen.The amenities include a massage area, pool and an open lounge area where you can relax,converse about your day over a cocktail, read, play chess or backgammon while looking out over the Serengeti. The food is amazing and dinner is a set, five-course meal.The Kirawira is a great place to recoup after a long safari. Stay for a couple days and arrange to do a hot air balloon safari, over the Serengeti, that includes a wonderful breakfast when you land. Between the camp and balloon ride, this was one of the most unique and amazing experiences of my life. This experience is well worth the price.
