If you are planning a safari in Northern Tanzania, Kirurumu Lodge is a great place to spend a few nights in the middle or end of the safari, when you could use a little pampering and some clean clothes (they offer same day laundry service). We stayed two nights in February, 2014, and were very glad we did. Our experience with the staff was outstanding from the moment we arrived. We took advantage of the complimentary one hour guided hike to the edge of the escarpment. Meals and restaurant service were outstanding, with a fixed menu that offers a vegetarian choice, which was also outstanding (stuffed eggplant one evening and vegetarian lasagna the next). Coffee and tea were always available. The tents themselves were like suites with solid floors, permanent toilet and shower set up with hot water for showers available at any time. While there are no warnings about lions roaming the grounds, I did find a bushbaby on the roof at dusk. The lodge is about a 15 minute drive from Lake Manyara National Park.
