Karatu Simba Lodge offers a slice of life only to be found in rural Tanzania. Located about a thirty-minute drive from the gate of Lake Manyara National Park, approximately four kilometres off the main road to the entry of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the lodge is situated next to the Ngorongoro Forest.

Accommodation is in individual twin, double, triple cottages or rondavels with canvas walls and solid attached bathroom with showers. Each unit has its own deck with safari chairs for relaxing and viewing the pastoral setting. Guests can enjoy free Wi-Fi in the common areas, an evening campfire and pool with views onto the forest. The lodge is eco-friendly with solar power and hot water and there is a well-stocked bar and dining room serving food and coffee fresh from nearby plantations. Karatu Simba Lodge was designed to provide a quiet, restful place to unwind between your active safari days. You’ll be welcomed to reception with a refreshing towel and drink on arrival. Tea is served every afternoon and the bar is always open. Relax in the lounge or around the pool and don’t miss the evening campfire or watching the sunset behind the Ngorongoro Forest
