Kirurumu Serengeti Camp

Serengeti & the North

Rating: Deluxe    

Kirurumu Serengeti Camp overview

This small, luxury mobile camp has an intimate atmosphere, and is moved during the season to optimise wildlife viewing. From June to December it is in the Moru Kopjes, an area of grass plains and huge granite rock formations with large numbers of resident game and many prides of lion. In late December the camp is moved in its entirety to the Ndutu region of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. This is an excellent location to witness the annual migration, with lakes attracting vast migratory herds and predators from the surrounding plains.    
The camp consists of seven walk-in safari tents, which provide spacious accommodation comprising a bedroom with ample storage space, coffee table and chairs, en-suite shower room with a hand basin and toilet. There's a small deck to the front of each tent where you can sit and take in the panoramic views.
Meals are served in the dining tent, eaten around a communal table, with waiters in attendance. Outside there's a traditional campfire where guests gather each evening before and after dinner, so swap stories, do some star gazing and enjoy a drink.   


Open: Kirurumu Serengeti Camp is open from June to the end of March each year.

Location: Kirurumu Serengeti Camp has 2 locations, moving part-way through each season. From June to December is in the Moru Kopjes area of central Serengeti (Moru Kopjes 5 campsite), and from December to March it moves eastwards to the Ndutu area of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (Ndutu 2 campsite NCA).  

Rooms: There are 7 guest tents, in traditional safari style made of canvas with large gauze windows on each side and matting on the floors. Each has 2 twin beds or 1 double bed with mosquito netting, a 6 foot mattress, pillows and bedding. There is a luggage rack, hanging storage space for clothes as well as a chest of drawers, table and chairs. There is solar-powered lighting and a supply of drinking water. The en-suite bathroom has a bucket shower, for which staff bring hot water, vanity unit with hand basin and mirror above, and chemical toilet. Towels are provided. At the front of the tent there is a shaded deck with room for 2 chairs and a small table.  

Activities::Morning and late afternoon game drives. While at Moru Kopjes the camp offers hot air balloon rides.

Facilities:  There is a cosy lounge tent with sofas, chairs, coffee tables, selection of books and magazines and an honesty bar. There is a separate dining tent. The campfire comes into its own from dusk onwards as the social heart of the camp. The camp has a free laundry service.   

Dining:  Meals are eaten as a group in the dining tent and out in the open.

Children: Children of all ages are welcome.

Health:  These are malarial areas.

Communication:  There is no internet access. 

Notes: The accommodation and facilities are the same as Kirurumu Serengeti North Camp

Kirurumu Serengeti Camp is a seasonal camp with a very small carbon footprint. This is achieved through such things as using eco charcoal briquettes made from coconut husks and sustainable cyprus wood for fires, and using minimal other fuel.  The Tanzania-owned company that runs the camp is a driving force behind the TATO conservation committee for anti-poaching, and backs various community projects in northern Tanzania.
