Nestled on the outskirts of Karatu, a small country town in the Ngorongoro Highlands, the Country Lodge Karatu serves as a tranquil haven midway between Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Encircled by the rolling hills of Oldeani and the forest of Ngorongoro, the lodge is situated within five lushly landscaped acres in Tanzania's green belt district and farming community.
Country Lodge Karatu embodies simple country comforts, providing pleasant and affordable accommodation in the heart of Tanzania's rich and scenic northern highlands and coffee estates. The lodge focuses on offering homey comforts and warm Tanzanian hospitality, making it the ideal stepping-stone to Ngorongoro Crater and beyond.
The lodge features 24 well-appointed rooms, which are simply furnished with soft lighting, comfortable beds, and mosquito nets. Each room also includes a sitting area, allowing you to relax in privacy. On chilly nights, the fireplaces in the rooms are a much-appreciated addition to enhance warmth and coziness.
Garden paths lead to twelve double cottages surrounded by verdant lawns, brightly colored bougainvillea, and tropical plants and trees. Birds and butterflies thrive in this environment, providing you with a perfect setting to unwind and connect with nature.
Besides the comfortable rooms, the lodge offers a sparkling swimming pool, farm-to-table cuisine, and a spa for your relaxation. Experience an array of exciting activities nearby, ranging from wildlife viewing and cultural encounters to forest hiking, village visits, and coffee plantation tours.
