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...

Spent two nights at this lodge as part of an OAT safari. Had a great time. We watched animals as we sat on our tent's front porch. Kirk's Dikdik's played along side of our tent. Staff was very hospitable and food was delicious. On our last day, staff had to lead us out as elephants decided to walk through the...

We spent 3 days here in Oct 2014 and have to say our experience was magical. The staff could not have been more helpful, the Masai were always on hand to take you to and from your lodge at night. The food although a limited menu was excellent and they would do an alternative if needed. Everyone was intent on...

We didn't know what to expect here but it was a pleasant surprise, nice roomy tent, very clean and a comfy bed, the only problem was that our loo was incredibly unstable which was a surprise and took some getting used to!!! The food portions here were the smallest we had on our whole trip and some of it was...

We stayed here two night on safari, I wasn't sure how I would find a tented safari but this place was lovely with electricty and a warm shower. There are a lot of elephants very close to the camp and a lot of the time we got stuck in our room or stuck in the restaurant waiting for them to...

We did a tour in northern Tanzania , including high-end accomodation in Serengeti en Ngorongoro. But this camp was our favorite because of the small scale of it, the very friendly staff, de nice tent-bungalows and the elephants on the camp. The camp is in the zone around Tarangire NP and the road to the camp leads you through some...

This was the start of our safari and we were immediately made to fee lat home and welcome. Food was very good as was the accomodation. Joseph the manager was very welcoming and we learned a lot about Tanzania and Africa from him. We would return here anytime we could!

OK so it isn't a Sopa or highfalutin lodge. But it was what out tour organiser said it would be and what we wanted...a very comfortable tented lodge about 30-40 min from the Tarangire Main Gate. But the drive itself was interesting as we saw some game plus Maasai villages. The tents were fine and the ensuites were basic but...

We stayed at Kirurumu Tented Camp for 1 night during a recent safari in Tanzania and did not enjoy our stay. The camp is located outside the park boundary a long way down a dirt road and was hard to find with very poor signage directing us to the camp. The tent we had was full of mosquitos, spiders and...

Thanks for your review. The tented lodge is very clearly signed from the main road and its a ten minute drive down one track straight into the camp. We provide all drivers in advance with clear instructions how to find us and together with GPS coordinates. We chose this site for its beauty and great wildlife viewing, which is what...

I would not have missed this for the world! The camp is right on the edge of the park(but not near the entrance) and the experience of watching elephants graze right outside your tent is something no amount of unnecessary 5 star facilities could top.The tents are, as previous reviewers have said, sturdy,clean and comfortable and we had a lovely...

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
