Plantation Lodge

Ngorogoro Crater, Tanzania

Plantation Lodge is a short drive from the bustling market town of Karatu, owner-run and is a calm and elegant sanctuary from the dusty business of a safari. Just an hour and a half from the crater rim and only 45 minutes to Lake Manyara makes this the perfect base. Rolling lawns, the scent and colours of the flower gardens, discreet service, a lovely pool and a massage contribute to a refreshing stay.

The 23 individually decorated rooms and five spacious, stylish suites are well-spaced in the attractive gardens. Families or small groups can enjoy the four bedroom, double-storey Garden House with its verandah offering magnificent views of the hills. Meals are fresh and varied with some produce coming from the Plantation Lodge gardens.

Plantation Lodge – Super, comfortable hotel.  Spent quite a while chatting to the owner and liked her very much.  We felt real thought and effort was being put in.

This must be the best place to stay in the Ngorongoro Crater area. It's excellent!
