Fodor's Review

Turn back the clock and stay at a camp that any well-heeled Victorian traveler would have felt completely at home in. Colonial comfort meets Africa in this gorgeous tented camp overlooking the western corridor just west of Seronara. Kirawira is a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World group, but that won't surprise you as the elegant pioneer ambience—polished wooden floors, gleaming antique furniture, handmade patchwork bedspreads, copper urns, and shining brass

lamps—wraps itself around you. Your spacious double en-suite tent faces the endless plains where you can go for exhilarating game-packed drives and guided walks. Venture farther afield to go fishing or sailing on Lake Victoria. A crocodile safari—brave souls go out at night to track and watch crocs—by the Grumeti River will be a highlight, as will your meals; the food here is some of the Serengeti's finest and there's an extensive selection of wines and spirits.
