Thank you - we had an amazing time! We have prviously done four safaris in South Africa, Botswana and South Luangwa in Zambia, and I would say that as an all-round experience this was the best.
Kirawira Camp is perched high on the bluff of a bush-cloaked ridge, commanding panoramic views over the endlessly rolling plains of Serengeti National Park,
Kirawira Camp is located in the Western Corridar where during the months of May through to July this camp has a ringside seat at the great wildebeest migration. The plains around the camp fill up with animals heading north and preparing to cross the dry Grumeti River.On a clear day, the views are spectacular, and a Swarovski spotting scope in the lounge area makes game viewing possible without leaving the lodge!
Kirawira Camp is the epitome of colonially-styled safari luxury. Designed in typically Edwardian style, it features an elegant central meeting tent evocatively furnished with a tasteful selection of chintz-covered chaises longues, jewel-hued Persian rugs, antique escritoires, wind-up phonograms, leather-bound travelling cases, brass shooting sticks, carved rocking chairs, and stud-backed smoking chairs.
Kirawira Camp has 25 luxurious double tents and a swimming pool, and prides itself on the personal attention given to each guest. Excellent cuisine can be prepared either according to guest recipes or cooked to- order from the house. Activities include guided walks and driving safaris, fishing and sailing on Lake Victoria, bush lunches, crocodile safaris by the Grumeti River and slide presentations daily by the resident naturalist.
In our opinion Kirawira Camp is ideal between May and July when the migration passes through and is worth a visit at other times if combined with Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater and the central Serengeti in a Northern Safari circuit.
