Kirurumu Ngorongoro Lodge: Our full report

**Kirurumu Ngorongoro is not currently operating.

There are plans for the camp to re-open in the future and we will update this page as soon as we have further information**

Kirurumu Ngorongoro is a tented camp situated near the Ngorongoro Crater. It's the sister camp to the existing Kirurumu Manyara and Kirurumu Tarangire camps, and enjoys a similar comfortable and simple set-up.

Expert Africa hasn't yet had a chance to visit this camp, but this is what we know about it:

There are 7 tents at Kirurumu Ngorongoro, which can be either twin or double bedded. Each cream tent has a luggage rack, table, safari chairs, solar lighting and an en-suite bathroom. Although not overly luxurious, they look relatively stylish and certainly comfortable.

You'll also find a campfire where guests will meet for a pre-dinner drink, before moving on to the dining tent for their meals.


Our view

Kirurumu Ngorongoro is located near the Ngorongoro Crater, in a scenic area dotted with Maasai villages. It's a good option if you want something a bit more rustic, a little off the beaten track, and more intimate than the Serenas and Sopas, but without the price tag of the Crater Lodge.
