Plantation Lodge is a tranquil owner-run lodge half way between the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Lake Manyara National Park. A short distance from the bustling market town of Karatu, it is set in nearly 3 hectares of land, with beautifully maintained gardens and great views over the surrounding countryside. Very spacious, elegant and relaxing, it has a distinctly German colonial-style feel and is staffed entirely by people from the local area.
Our view of Plantation Lodge
Expert Africa's team have visited Plantation Lodge on numerous occasions in the last few years, most recently in July 2013, and it's always been immaculately presented – clean and really well kept with very helpful staff. We think that it's a lovely tranquil base from which to explore the Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara areas – but if you do stay here, then try to make time to relax by the pool, or in the garden, in the shade of a eucalyptus tree, with a cup of fresh locally grown coffee, to admire the views over the plantations.
