Such a great first night in a safari Tented Camp. We stayed in Tented Lodge number 24 and the views over Lake Manyara were simply stunning. Staff were friendly also and not too far a drive from the park entrance. I would like to see this place with more guests as sadly we were the only ones staying but enjoyed our time there.

The lodges had amazing views over the lake & were very clean & comfortable. The service from Joe was excellent, with reduced staff due to Covid, he was our waiter, bar man & host and made us feel very welcome and could not do enough for us to make our stay unforgettable.

We had a wonderful 2-night stay there at the lodge. It beat any expectations that I had prior to going. We were welcomed by the staff with smiles and juice. The check-in was easy, and we were shown our way to our room by the local Maasai. We stayed in #24. If you can, ask for that! It has a beautiful view of Lake Manyara and is just gorgeous. The bed was large and comfy. The bathroom was large and plenty of room for 2 people to get ready at the same time. They also spray down your room at night and prepare your room for bed. Dinner was scrumptious. They offer you a menu of the day with a 3-course meal, soup, main entrée and sides and dessert. The Butternut Squash soup was impeccable. There was plenty of food and everyone was kind and treated you like family. We also had box lunches from them. There was sooooo much food and it was all good!! We had beef, a vegetable empanada (it may not be called that but that’s what it reminded me of), fruit, yogurt, cookies, bread, a boiled egg and juice. There was plenty of food!! I highly recommend staying there along with using their services for box lunches!! This is a place where they treat you like “familia”, family!! Thank you for a wonderful stay!!

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Kirurumu Manyara Lodge. The staff was incredible friendly, the rooms were large and comfortable, the food was delicious, and the views of Lake Manyara and the valley are stunning. This place is situated in a jungle setting on top of a ravine that overlooks the lake. We enjoyed sipping wine while watching the sunset over the lake and valley. Overall the Kirurumu made us feel very special and welcome. It is in close proximity to Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Park so is a good stopping point for visiting that area. I would highly recommend this lodge, and would definitely stay their again. Good stuff!

We stayed 1 night as we made our way from Arusha to the Serengeti. The views from our tent and the bar were incredible!! A fantastic place to relax and put the legs up after a long journey or safari. We felt so welcome from the moment we arrived, a group of traditional Masai carried our bags in and we were met at the bar by a friendly, happy lady(wish I remember her name-she was fantastic!!). Food was great and the room was big and comfy! Really hope this place gets busy during peak season as it is great!!

We stayed here one night. The room was great. Everything worked and we had hot water. Spent most of the time at the bar. Another great view, Dinner was excellent and open air. I really liked this facility with one exception. They would not let our Safari guide in. We had been on Safari for a week and stayed at a number of places. Each facility welcomed the guides. In the afternoon we would normally hang out at the bar and our guide would educate us on the area we were in and we would go over the next days plan. Not sure why the guides are not admitted in but did bother me. Other than that its was a great property and everyone was extremely helpful.

The Kirurumu Manyara Lodge is located at a beautiful site with a fantastic view of Lake Manyara. The restaurant is an open air setup, apart from the lake view, there are also many birds and squirrels frequently visiting us while we are having our lunch. We had a very large room which was very clean, but the zips in our tent were not functioning well, we couldn’t zip the tent’s canvas walls. Consequently, we had a very cold night. The other big problem is our shower, the water flow is very low and the hot water wasn’t really hot. As we only stayed there for one night, we didn’t make a fuss about it. The lodge’s food is quite nice and staff are wonderful, they are very friendly and kind.

My wife, twelve year old son and I stayed here one night in mid-March. The tent itself was spacious and comfortable. The food at the restaurant was very good and so was the entertainment provided by the acrobats. But above all else, the service was spectacular, and we left the next morning feeling like we had visited long lost family friends. We certainly hope to visit again!

Accommodation was spacious, comfortable and clean. Dinner was very good, staff in the bar, dining area were very good, friendly and helpful. The only drawback was that it advertises as accepting credit cards, but in fact their machine wasn't even charged so obviously we got the standard reply everyone was getting : service is not working. The receptionist was not very helpful and eventually the Manager came and sorted the problem out for us. So, many thanks. Best thing would be to say they don't accept credit cards. Seems other visitors have had the same problem...
