This luxury air safari offers three days on safari in Tanzania’s magnificent Serengeti National Park, one of the world’s most beautiful natural arenas wherein the harmony of nature can be appreciated as nowhere else on earth. Known to the local people as Siringet which means the place of the endless plains, the Serengeti is also the venue for the greatest wildlife show on earth, the annual migration of over one million wildebeest, and their attendant cast of herbivores and predators.
Close to the Grumeti River, famed for its giant crocodiles, perched on a hill with uninterrupted views of the plains of the western Serengeti, Kirawira Serena camp offers its guests a luxurious tented African safari. Kirawira is a reincarnation of a Victorian tented camp and guests enjoy luxurious accommodation, a valet service, superb house cuisine, fine wines, and the best of East African hospitality.
Throughout the camp, native wood, African art, and tented canvas are combined with typical Victorian and colonial furniture to recall a bygone era of explorers, pioneers, and the early colonial settlers. The accommodation is housed in deluxe individual tents set on wooden platforms. Each has a spacious double bedroom and bathroom, styled from the Victorian period with African art, and a private verandah from which there are spectacular views over the endless Serengeti.
At 08:00 you will depart from Arusha Airport (ARK) on scheduled flight to arrive at Grumeti Airstrip in western Serengeti. The arrival will be at 09:30. Here, you will be met by your camp driver guide at Grumeti Airstrip and transferred to Kirawira Serena Camp for check-in with game viewing en-route. You will have lunch in the camp followed by an afternoon at leisure to enjoy a swim in the camp swimming pool or opt to enjoy breath-taking views of the plains from your tent deck.
At 16:00, enjoy an afternoon game viewing drive before returning to the lodge in time early evening in time for dinner.
Enjoy breakfast in the camp. You will enjoy two full days of game viewing drives in the park. Vast and sensational, the Serengeti covers 14,763 square kilometers of endlessly rolling savannah plains and is Tanzania’s first-established, largest, and most famous park. Here, propelled by the rains twice a year, 1.3 million wildebeest, 200,000 zebras, and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelles gather to undertake an 800-kilometer trek to new grazing lands.
The precise timing of the migration varies, but generally the herbivores congregate and move out at the end of May, sometimes over a period of weeks, sometimes over a period of as little as three or four days. Heading west on a roughly triangular 800-kilometer circuit, they head to the Masai Mara National Reserve of Kenya. When the grazing here is exhausted, the tide of herbivores turns and reverses its progress, returning to the short grass plains of Tanzania.
After breakfast at the camp, you will be transferred to Grumeti Airstrip for your scheduled flight to Arusha departing at 09:35 and arriving at 12:15 at Arusha. You will be met on arrival by a Serena Hotels representative and be driven to Lake Duluti Serena Hotel for lunch. Later, you will be transferred to Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) for your homebound flight.
