A luxury mobile camp, Kirurumu Serengeti moves its location seasonally, taking advantage of the vast, wildlife-rich Serengeti. It is a small and intimate place, and staff are on hand to look after a very limited number of guests.
The camp is used as a base for early morning game drives, followed by a break for a sumptuous lunch, respite from the heat of the day, and the finale to a day's adventure where stories can be swapped around the campfire.
From December to March the camp is located in the short grass plains in Ndutu, in June it moves north to the Western Corridor, then during the dry season it moves to a more central location to take advantage of the wildlife in the Seronera area.
Accommodation consists of seven large customised safari tents, tastefully furnished with comfortable (twin or double) beds with thick mattresses, pillows, blankets & sheets, luggage rack, table, safari chairs, mats and soft furnishings in an individual style. Both the bedroom and en suite bathroom (with shower and toilet) have solar-powered lighting. Other facilities include a dining tent for breakfast, lunch and romantic, candle-lit dinners with waiter service, and a campfire area.
