Kirurumu Manyara Lodge covers 13 acres high on the edge of the Great Rift Valley, with panoramic views eastward over Lake Manyara and Mount Losimingori in northern Tanzania. The Ngorongoro Highlands rise behind Kirurumu, forming the gateway to Ngorongoro Crater, Olduvai Gorge and the Serengeti. This tented lodge offers good service, comfortable accommodation, tasty home-cooked food and a relaxed atmosphere. It's not a luxury lodge but it has everything you need and for a good price.

All of the tented rooms and cottages are tastefully furnished with wooden verandahs with armchairs and table, full en-suite facilities (flush toilet, shower, handbasin) and running water. There is 24-hour electricity and each room has plugs for charging batteries. The lodge has a thatched, open-sided dining room serving local and European dishes and a well-stocked bar with incredible views of Lake Manyara from the terrace. Guest rooms and the main areas are linked by stone paths.

The lodge arranges game viewing excursions to Lake Manyara National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater. Guests can be taken on half-day treks and hikes and enjoy a Maasai-led ethnobotanical walk. Visits to local villages are popular and offer insights into the Maasai way of life.
