Located just outside Tarangire National Park, you feel like you're sleeping in the wild at this tented camp! The accommodation is very clean and comfortable. You do hear some strange and slightly scary noises during the night, but that just adds to the experience!
Food is very good although not a lot of it. The staff were fun but we were never once told about the facilities such as the bar or outside seating area during our stay.
We were also slightly delayed in the morning as there were some elephants wondering through the camp and we had to wait for them! Again, it shows how close we were to Tarangire national park.
- 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
