When To Visit The Ngorongoro Crater:

Bougainvillea Safari Lodge is located right on the outskirts of Karatu, perfectly positioned for exploring both the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara National Park.


We believe that Bougainvillea is perfect for travellers on a slightly tighter budget. Although it is not as luxurious as some of the other properties in the area, it provides outstanding value.


Midway between Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater, Bougainvillea Safari Lodge is located on the outskirts of Karatu town and is a three hour drive from Arusha. 


The lodge consists of 32 spacious cottages set in and around lush gardens. Bougainvillea is a fairly simple property yet caters perfectly for its guests’ needs. There is a fireplace in every room and a refreshing swimming pool for cooling down after a long day on safari.

The food here is excellent – and the bar, unlike a lot of other lodges in the area, is very affordable.


  • The guesthouse can arrange guided walks around the area's beautiful coffee farms, as well as cultural visits to the Iraqw, Hadzabe or Datogo communities. 
"One of the lower end properties for Manyara and Ngorongoro but a great option for clients looking for good value."
