Kirurumu Serengeti Camp is a seasonal camp with a very small carbon footprint. This is achieved through such things as using eco charcoal briquettes made from coconut husks and sustainable cyprus wood for fires, and using minimal other fuel. The Tanzania-owned company that runs the camp is a driving force behind the TATO conservation committee for anti-poaching, and backs various community projects in northern Tanzania.
"My favourite lodge has to be Kirurumu tented camp in the Serengeti for true sense of wilderness. Special thanks to everyone here for keeping us safe after a pride of lions invaded the camp after dinner one evening ! "
