Our stay at the Kirurumu was our first 2 nights in tented lodge, part of a 2 week safari.
What a great set up. Luxurius tent, comfortable & clean, friendly people, good food, and all this, in the the bush.
After a great day in the Tarangire park, you come in, take a good hot shower, and then, go for a cold beer or a glass of wine at the camp fire. Followed by a nice dinner, simple, but good food, with nice service.
After dinner, armed Masai warriors will guide you to your tent. You get in, thinking the Masai did it for the "show".... After a few moments, you know you are in the wild. You hear all sort of noises, and some are pretty close. We got visited by elephants, feeding on Acacia trees 3 feet from our tent. And they came back at sunrise......So Cool
The second night was a bit quieter, we only had a Giraff.....

We stayed here one night during our safari, when we visited Tarangire National Park. This luxury tent camp was exactly what we hoped for, and even more. Beautiful tents, stunning location, friendly staff, Maasai men who guide you to your tent in order to protect you from the animals that cross the grounds, ... It felt like paradise!

Stayed at Kirurumu through our Imagine Africa-planned safari. Service was great - everyone went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and enjoying our stay. A great spot if you are on safari in Tarangire / Manyara and want to stay in the middle of nature. Permanent tents are simple and a bit dated but overall a great experience.

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.

My wife and I spent the first 2 days of our safari at Kirurumu Lodge. We really enjoyed the hospitality of the people and the room we stayed in was great. The first night we could hear an elephant's ears flapping and smell the hay that was being eaten-the elephant couldn't have been more than a few yards away from us.

I would recommend staying at the lodge to anyone who enjoys camping, but wants to still have the comforts of a bed and shower. Overall, it was very enjoyable place to stay on our first nights of the safari.
