The lodge has a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere.Kirurumu MIDKirurumu is a permanent tented lodge set high on the edge of the Rift Valley with spectacular views out over Tanzania. The open-sided dining room and bar make the most of the view! Arusha National ParkSet between the towering peaks of Mt. Meru and snow-capped Kilimanjaro, the park comprises lush montane forest, the beautiful Momella Lakes and the tranquil craters of Ngurdoto and Mt. Meru. There are few parks with such variety.

It is a superb wildlife destination and particularly welcoming when added on after the busy 'northern circuit' of Manyara, Ngorongoro and Serengeti. The river attracts enormous herds of elephants and the landscape is a rich and varied mix of trees, plains, swamps and rocky outcrops. Elephants are virtually guaranteed here and predators (including wild dog) hunt the herds of buffalo, Grant's and Thompson's gazelle, Burchell's zebra, giraffe and warthog. The area is excellent for birds of prey and provides superb habitats for hundreds of other species. Tarangire Treetops HIGH Tarangire Treetops is located just outside the park boundary. It is a great place for resident elephants. The ten treehouse style rooms are large and airy and some of them are built on stilts allowing the wildlife to pass freely underneath. The central area built around a giant Baobab overlooks a beautiful waterhole.Tarangire River Camp MIDTarangire River Camp is near the main entrance to Tarangire in a fantastic position overlooking a tributary of the Tarangire River where you can sit and take in your surroundings with views across to the park.

Selous Game ReserveSelous Game Reserve is named after Frederick Courtney Selous, the famous 19th century hunter and explorer. It is the largest wildlife sanctuary on the African continent covering a staggering 54,600 square kilometres consisting of vast tracts of wilderness containing perhaps the greatest concentration of big game left on earth. Only in its northern extremity in the area of forest set around the mighty Rufi ji River has the Selous suffered the incursion of man, and it is still home to a bewildering array of birds and mammals. This is the Africa experienced by many of its early explorers - raw and untouched. Selous Safari Camp MID This camp is on the shores of Lake Tagalala close to the Rufi ji River. Each of the 12 safari tents is on a timber platform offering great views of the lake. It offers good facilities; both the bar and dining room are raised on wooden platforms above the ground.
