We stayed here at the start of our trip, and we were very happy with the lodge; the room was comfortable, the location was good (fantastic to wake up to 2 dikdiks right outside), and the staff very helpful. It was great to sit around the fire for pre-dinner drinks. We thought the food was ok, considering the location, but the dessert was the worst attempt at Swiss roll I have ever eaten! We later found much better food in similar locations, so I think it could be improved.
- 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
