A member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the world, Kirawira has spared no expense to create an elegant oasis in the midst of the world-famous Serengeti. Charming colonial-era touches like chintz lounges, Persian rugs, antique escritoires, wind-up phonographs and leather-bound traveling cases and an aura of classic safari elegance. Savor dishes bursting with flavors including five-course luncheons and suppers comprising delicious soups, lavish roasts, and house-made sorbets on delicate china amid Edwardian-era dining room furniture. The 25 raised tents offer exquisite appointments that recall the golden days of safari in the Serengeti – steamer trunks, a writing desk, brass lamps, sepia photographs and four-poster beds with patchwork quilts – and each has its own personal valet to accommodate your every whim and wish. The luxury pervades the whole property: there is a swimming pool with plunge-bath, waterfall, a timbered viewing deck and panoramic views of the grand Western Corridor of the Serengeti. Action-packed morning and afternoon game drives showcase the many creatures that call this area home including the vaunted Big Five. Visits to neighboring communities and schools help to introduce guests to the deep cultural roots in the region. Kirawira also caters to families: they have family-friendly tent options, baby-sitting and plenty of adventures created with children in mind.
