Plantation Lodge is a wonderful little property with a superb base from which to explore the Rift Valley, including Ngorongoro, Manyara and the surrounding villages.

An idyllic lodge to break your journey between Arusha and the Serengeti, or a scenic base for exploring the Ngorongoro Crater, Plantation Lodge is a winner at YZ and a classic choice for couples or families. 

Plantation Lodge is located in the Karatu area of northern Tanzania.

The gardens have always been immaculate, and the rooms spotless and full of character. Needless to say, it is one of our favourite lodges in the area. Consisting of 16 standard rooms as well as four more expensive suites, Plantation Lodge provides great-value accommodation while also offering very high standards in the suites. All rooms are based around the central grounds and main area, where there is a lovely pool.

The lodge is surrounded by its own coffee plantation and working farm. The grounds are a great place to relax and also explore – this is one of the most welcoming properties we know.

We most often use Plantation as a two-night base from which to explore the surrounding area. Lake Manyara is within 30 minutes’ drive, whereas Ngorongoro is only an hour’s drive away.

"Yet another great lodge in the Karatu area! Perfect for exploring the Ngorongoro and Manyara, Plantation is great value. One of our most popular Tanzania lodges."
