Kirurumu Tarangire Lodge

Kirurumu is the best of the tented camps set around the edge of Tarangire. It is only 15 minutes to the park gate and yet feels pretty wild. The camp fire outside the front of the lodge is a fantastic place to relax and feel very much a part of the bush, as many animals come through the camp in the dry season attracted by the swamp which is neatly placed at the front of the lodge. This is what sets Kirurumu apart from its competitors outside the park and the camp itself is of a good quality, especially given the low price.

Kirurumu Tarangire Lodge

The ten rooms sit on concrete bases with tented walls and thatched roofs. The rooms are cool and clean with comfy beds and ensuite bathrooms with twin sinks. One benefit of being outside the park is a permanent shower, internet facilities (should you want them) and 24-hour electricity in the rooms. The atmosphere in the camp is most prominent at night time, as the lighting in the big main area is very attractive with the fire lit outside too.

The park, a ten minute drive down a dirt road followed by a further five minutes on a tarmac road, comes to life from early July with the annual migration of thousands of animals from the surrounding ecosystem, attracted by the swamps that hold water year-round. The elephant migration is the main draw, with up to 8,000 elephants arriving every year. From the lodge you can take a short botanical walk or a full days trek and mountain biking is also available for the hardier amongst you. You can also spend the whole day out in the park, stopping for a lunch at one of the many picnic spots with dramatic views of the park.
