Kirurumu Tented Lodge is extremely unobtrusive, having been built with sensitivity
toward the landscape. Great care was taken not to cut any trees, the tent bases
were made from local, volcanic stone and the roofs are thatched, blending into
Impact on the Lodge's surroundings has been absolutely minimal, as all utility
lines were carefully placed underground and hot water is created by solar panels.
As a result, bird life around the Lodge has increased and even the shy dik-dik,
the smallest of the antelope family, has remained resident around camp.
Kirurumu supports the local community as well, providing clean, fresh water,
and a supportive Community Development program.
