The privately run Plantation Lodge is located between Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Lake Manyara National Park, a short distance from the bustling market town of Karatu. It’s set in nearly three hectares of beautifully maintained gardens, staffed entirely by local residents and is mainly used by visitors travelling with their own guide and vehicle, as a base from which to visit Ngorongoro Crater and possibly Lake Manyara National Park.

Our view of Plantation Lodge

Expert Africa team members 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 try to make time to relax by the pool, or in the shade of one of the garden’s eucalyptus trees with a cup of fresh locally grown coffee.
