Kirawira Camp

Kirawira Tent

Each of the 25 tented rooms at Kirawira are set on raised on wooden platforms. A number of stairs climb up to the platform and shaded veranda where there is a pair of director's chairs.

Inside the tent is a large four-poster bed, draped in mosquito netting. Each room has a hairdryer, 24-hour electricity and a standing fan for hot nights. There is also antique style writing desk, and hanging space for clothes. The rooms have an antique style, though they do also feel a little dated. Since our visit in April 2015, we understand that most tents have been fully refurbished.

At the back of the tent is the en-suite bathroom, which is relatively small yet quite smart. Dark polished wood and marble effect make up the surfaces of the bathroom. The newer bathrooms have twin basins whilst the original bathrooms each have a single basin. White bathrobes are provided for each guest and toiletries are included. Behind one door is a flush toilet, and then behind a curtain is a white-and-navy-tiled shower with running hot-and-cold water.
