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....

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.

What a lovely lodge. We were greeted with mango juice and warm towels our first day - very welcome. We had a family room for ourselves and our son. All were netted and very spacious.

Our spacious tent was quite comfortable with a large front porch from which to watch the animals in the distance. We saw elephants and giraffes from our tent and from the nearby dining facility. Our tent was the furthest out and it felt as though we were really camping in the bush and not part of a bigger complex. At...

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
