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...

One of the best places we stayed at during our 3 week touring Tanzania. Brilliant, spacious tent with a lovely view, fantastic views and service from the bar terrace ( also best place to see the sunrise) and Joel and his staff made us feel so welcome in the dining room. We were self-driving and the road was not very good after all the recent unseasonal rain but manageable. 400m in from the main road, there is a small orphans’ school with a sign outside Happy Home Centre run by a lovely lady Angela Chabai. Well worth a stop over. We gave them some unwanted lunch boxes and had such a lovely interaction with the orphans that we ended up raising some funds for them
