I would not have missed this for the world! The camp is right on the edge of the park(but not near the entrance) and the experience of watching elephants graze right outside your tent is something no amount of unnecessary 5 star facilities could top.The tents are, as previous reviewers have said, sturdy,clean and comfortable and we had a lovely dinner with our safari companions, followed by drinks around the bush fire. The masai guards walked us back to our tents and we drifted off to sleep to the sounds of the bush. A perfect end to our 1st, but not last, safari.
- 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
