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.

Our stay at Kirurumu Under Canvas Tented Lodge was wonderful. The room was clean and comfortable, and we loved sitting on our porch enjoying a glass of wine and our view. The dinner experience was exceptional. We enjoyed a campfire before dinner, and the food was amazing. Breakfast was also excellent. Service was outstanding and the staff were all welcoming and kind. Elephants came right by our tent at night. We wish we had been able to stay longer!

Our stay at Kirurumu Under Canvas was awesome! We spent one night of our honeymoon here and it was unbelievable. The experience of being right in the middle of nature was exciting and unforgettable. We even woke up to a lion's roar at 3 am. The tents are very well equipped. Hot water, light, huge beds, plugs. No problems at all. Food was great and the location excellent. The staff was super friendly. Special thanks to our friend Simon!

The staff was super friendly and the experience was amazing! We had elephants around the tent and hyenas not so far. But the Massai were close, so we felt great and enjoyed it a lot! Food very good as well.

The very nice canvass "tents" include a bathroom and a porch. Within minutes of our arrival there were two elephants within several feet of our porch. We were also visited by more elephants and warthogs. At the dinner tent we saw baboons and a family of bush buck. The dinner and breakfast were surprisingly good for the location. "Security"was provided by authentic Masai.

I had stayed at this tented lodge in 2012, and found that a spectacular, spacious new dining/lounge pavilion had been built which overlooked the evening fire pit area and the grasslands beyond. The staff welcomes you on arrival with a glass of fresh juice and hot towels! The individual permanent tents are comfortable with ensuite facilities, beds with mosquito netting, and other amenities. All of the meals whether in the pavilion or boxed for lunch are delicious. The cream soups at dinner are amazing. The sounds at night and early morning of animals and birds are so special. The staff, including your Maasai escorts to and from the tents, are professional, and always smiling and willing to help with any request. Good wifi in the dining and reception areas. Charging stations for electronics in the tents. The lodge is a an hour or so from Arusha, so if your time is short this is a special place to stay. Traveling with Hoopoe Adventure Safaris through the Tarangire National Park made this the perfect accommodation for our 3 day stay. To finalize, I believe it is essential, during these unsettled times, to think about the future for the tourism, people and animals of this special place. Please try to plan for when it will be possible to travel again. Safari Njema.

A really friendly and interesting Lodge right by the game park , the “ tents” are very substantial and this is not camping ! The facilities were excellent, good shower and spacious room. The Masai escorting us to and from the dining area was a real pleasure and the footprints of buffalo in the morning reminded us of why we needed them .the breakfast was freshly prepared and excellent fruit and coffee. Packed lunches for the Safari were copious and varied with interesting options and minimal plastic being introduced. Evenings were delightful with a log fire burning to sit out and watch the sunset and listen to the different animal calls followed by an excellent supper with super friendly and attentive staff. We were there for 2 nights but would have loved longer as it was a really restful and interesting experience.

Our room (tent) overlooked the lake and surrounding area (Massai Veld) which was spectacular. Camp is situated on edge of Rift Valley. Very large camp and room was very spacious, very clean and all the basic needs met. Staff were excellent - helpful, always available, waited to walk you to dinner/reception. A wonderful experience and certainly one to be had if you can. Would definitely recommend a stay here.
