Located on the far end of Western Serengeti, atop a hill with sweeping views of the surrounding plains, Kirawira Camp is a unique blend of Victorian and African craftsmanship, combining the adventure and the excitement of the pioneering African with the essential luxuries required by today’s discerning traveler.
The lodge has only 25 double tents, it is an exclusive experience. The essentially colonial ambiance of the tented-rooms evokes colorful memories of the famous safaris of days gone by, when such romantic figures as Teddy Roosevelt and Edward, Prince of Wales indulged in lavish East African shooting safaris of unrivaled elegance. Each room has a personal valet and has been accommodated in a spacious canvas tent, erected on raised platforms of rope-lashed logs and sheltered by a bush-thatch roof. The décor is a clever blend of classic opulence and camp practicality featuring generous four-poster beds, hand-made patchwork quilts, steamer-trunk wardrobes, brass lamps, sepia photographs and rosewood escritoires, whilst to the rear of each tent is an elegant mahogany-paneled bathroom with twin marble washstands, polished brass fittings and classic black-and-white tiled Edwardian shower and lavatory.
