It was our first camp/lodge in Tanzania, and it was no nice! Small and friendly, beautiful campfire, good food. You are practically in the bushes, so no special views, but original feeling of Africa, and all its voices.

When you turn off the road, driving by masai villages down a bumpy road you would never expect to find the comfort, luxury and beauty of this lodge. Each tent has a great view, clean bathroom with A+ shower and privacy. Walking the pathways between the tents you find sculptures along with Dick-dicks! Staff are warm and attentive.

Stayed at this cool place on safari led by friends and JM Tours. Pretty remote (1/2 star removed for condition of the road, it's pretty brutal to get there!) but very close to Tarangire Natl Park so the game is right there! We had elephants outside the dining tent before dinner and giraffes a little farther out at breakfast. For...

I stayed here for 5 days with some friends and we were astonished at how fantastic the services was. The rooms were roomy, comfortable and there was warm water - something we hadn't had for nearly 2 months. The staff could not have been more welcoming and friendly. The food was delicious and they accommodated for our needs exceptionally well....

Great place where we heard lots of animals especially elephants! One night they were right next to our tent - it was kind of scary but oh so cool! Our tent was comfortable and spacious enough for 3 beds. Beds were comfortable and there was warm water. Staff were very accomodating and friendly. Stayed here for 2 nights. Loved eating...

From the warm welcome (hot towels and a juice!) and simple yet well appointed tents, to helpful friendly attentive staff and homely yet satisfying meals Kirurumu is a great little hideaway. The whole property is immersed in and very close to nature, i.e. a small herd of elephants strolled past as we were having a sundowner = superb and we...

Kirurumu Lodge is located close to Tarangire National Park, so there is a chance to see wild animals in or around the lodge. The tented houses are spacious and luxury and you get a real african safari feeling. Service staff was very friendly. Recommend this lodge definitely.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kirurumu Tarangire Lodge is built on the site of the old Tamarind Camp, in land we own and looking out on a flood plain that is seasonally a rich feeding ground for elephant and much else. It is bordering the park boundary, and is ideally situated being only 10 minutes off the main tarmac road and only 15 minutes drive from the main Tarangire park gate. There are 10 permanent tented cottages built in exactly the same style as the new Kirurumu Manyara Lodge cottages and the standards are the same high standards you have always been familiar with at Manyara. ... more   less
