"Almost in the open - wonderful !"

2 nights Arrived 10 Jul 2017
"The area we covered in the course of our game drives was comparably smaller and our guide less ambitious. We had however a good time, partly due to the fantastic structure of the newly built bungalows that gave us the feeling to stay entirely in the open. Being so near to all the wild life we would not even have needed to make game drives at all: elefants, zebras, impalas.......... could be watched with the naked eye !

In addition to this we were really lucky and had the night-drive of our lives !!!! This was the moment, when our guide woke up as well, got enthusiastic and said that even he himself had not seen such a scene before: two leopards on one side of the car (one of them in hunting position up in a tree) and on the other side three lionesses putting up their ambush on a group of impalas ! Coming back to the camp we finally saw a spring hare, which is an unusual sight as well, as we were told !" See all these reviews: 21n in Tanzania

"Gorgeous camp, lackluster safari experience"

3 nights Arrived 25 Sep 2015
"The Nomad camp at Kuro Tarangire is beautifully designed and located. The main dining and lounging area is light and airy, with chic design using gorgeous local crafts and textiles. The camp is located along a wildlife corridor, so we were able to see elephants, impala, zebra, giraffe, and waterbuck walk by (in the distance) as we ate meals or relaxed with a drink. The individual tents are very well-appointed and comfortable, and the service couldn't have been better.

As far as the park and the wildlife, I would caution anyone considering Tarangire that the guides are required to stay on the main park roads, so we were unable to get very close to any of the animals. We did have good elephant sightings, as they are extremely common and easy to see in Tarangire. There were many other vehicles in the park, and overall it didn't have a very wild feel to it.

On our first morning game drive, rather than stopping for a breakfast in the bush, our guide drove us to a designated national park picnic area, which was paved and developed, with a large parking lot and a bunch of ugly plastic picnic tables. There were 5 or 6 other groups there having breakfast there as well. All of the vehicles at Kuro Camp are fully enclosed with a pop-top roof, rather than the open-sided vehicles that we had been promised. Our guide seemed rather bored and uninterested in guiding, and he ended up functioning more as a driver than as a guide, so our wildlife experience was disappointing.

I would also caution that the tsetse flies are pretty thick in Tarangire!" See all these reviews: 13n in Tanzania

"Kuro Tarangire Review"

2 nights Arrived 24 Sep 2014
"The camp was extremely well organised and well run by Emmanuel and, without exception, the staff were cheerful, friendly and always ready to help. We enjoyed the intimacy of the camp the close relationship with the staff and not least the fantastic food. The chef at the camp produced the best muesli that we have ever had - delicious!

We had a wonderful time. We saw much more wildlife than we had ever expected. This was largely due to our guide Silvanus. His knowledge of the land, plants, birds and animals was quite incredible and we learned so much from him. There was not a question he could not answer. It was a pleasure to have been with him for those days.

Of particular note was a night drive where we had the wonderful and unique experience of witnessing a pack of wild dogs as they followed a herd of zebra and buffalo. In addition we would recommend to anyone the opportunity to go on a bush walk. Silvanus really brought the land and environment to life as he took us around.

If it is possible we would like to contact Silvanus, to whom we would like to send a small booklet about where we live and also Emmanuel who ran the Kuro camp so efficiently as I would like to follow up on a conversation he and I were having about ideas for walks etc." See all these reviews: 9n in Tanzania; 8n in Zanzibar
