The Plantation Lodge

Like a green oasis, The Plantation Lodge rests on the red-brown hills. The individually furnished rooms and suites melting harmoniously into the flowering garden offer comfort and relaxation. Everywhere you look, you can see and even feel the personal atmosphere of this owner-run lodge with furnishings that were selected with great attention to detail. The Plantation Lodge’s cordial service leaves no wish unfulfilled. The lodge’s location promises maximum safari enjoyment: a stone’s throw from the entrance to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the Lake Manyara National Park and just a short journey from the Tarangire National Park and the Serengeti.

The Nature
The Plantation Lodge

Bougainvillea, frangipani, jacaranda – our garden will pamper all your senses with the scent of tropical plants, colorful flowers, and the song of exotic birds. Our guests can enjoy the beautiful nature or be spoiled by the Culinary delights. The garden is not merely a flowering backdrop; it is put to good practical use, providing as it does an inexhaustible supply of flowers for the vases in the lodge’s rooms and fruits from the mango and avocado trees for our guests. The garden is our center.

The Pool
The Plantation Lodge

Whether you want to laze around or refresh yourself after a game drive, our pool, with its view of the picturesque hills, is ideal for a break. You can relax luxuriously on one of the comfortable sunbeds. Read, swim, dream, time will fly. And when the sun sinks blood red behind Mount Oldeani, this is the most beautiful place for a sundowner.
