Kirurumu Tarangire Lodge borders the Tarangire National Park boundary, only a short 15 minute drive from the main Tarangire Park Entrance Gate. The lodge looks out over a floodplain that is seasonally a rich feeding ground for elephants.
Tarangire is the 6th largest National Park in Tanzania, and offers some unrivalled elephant sightings - indeed, it is estimated that the Park is home to the largest elephant population in northern Tanzania - approximately 2,500 - and these numbers are rapidly increasing by an estimated 6% per year. Some elephant herds can be as large as 600 strong.
Huge herds of antelope, zebra, buffalo and wildebeest amass along the river banks and graze on the Park's fertile plains. Giraffe, waterbuck, impala, warthog, kudu, dik dik, pods of hippo and troops of baboons and vervet monkeys, resident lion, spotted hyena, cheetah and leopard - and last but not least, tree-climbing pythons - can all be spotted on game drives. For birders, this is a true paradise - over 500 bird species have been recorded in Tarangire.
Short guided botanical walks with a Masai guide can be arranged around the lodge area if you have a spare hour or so.
There are 10 tented cottages (including 2 family rooms), all with en-suite bathrooms (with hot and cold running water), electricity and a verandah.
The main guest areas include a bar with wonderful views of the floodplain and the Park. The dining room has waiter service, and there are internet facilities available at the main reception.
