Kirurumu Serengeti is a seasonal tented camp that moves between the Ndutu woodlands of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in the south, and the Sonzo area near Kogatende in the north.

Kirurumu Serengeti North and South is a traditional seasonal camp offering exceptional value for money. The tented camp has a fairly rustic, mobile feel, with comfortable and spacious en suite canvas tents. The camp does not compete on looks with some of the more lavish (and more expensive) tented camps, however the essence of what is on offer is the same – a comfortable base from which to explore the magical Serengeti plains. Camp management and staff are very friendly and the camp has a relaxed, warm atmosphere. Food is perfectly acceptable and guiding is very good. Kirurumu is not suitable for anyone seeking a luxurious experience, but it will really suit those looking for a friendly, down to earth camp which offers great value for money without compromising on the game viewing experience.


Kirurumu Serengeti caters for a maximum of 20 guests in 10 walk-in Meru style tents. One of the tents is suitable for families with a double bedroom and en suite bathroom which is connected to a twin bedroom at the back of the tent. All…
