Country Lodge Karatu


Affordable accommodation in an epic destination

Midway between Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area you’ll find the quaint country town of Karatu. On the outskirts of this town, in 2 hectares of lush gardens filled with bougainvillea and tropical plants, lies Country Lodge Karatu.

You also have the option of shopping in the village, taking a cultural tour, visiting nearby waterfalls, or touring a coffee plantation.
