There is a large common area building housing reception, lounge, bar, gift shop and dining rooms. The swimming pool sits in the centre of the property surrounded by the cottages and gardens.
Bougainvillea Safari Lodge currently has twenty-four cottages and is in the process of adding a few more. Each cosy room has mosquito-netted king or twin beds, a fireplace, large bathroom with shower and a veranda from which to enjoy the views of our lush tropical gardens. Triples are possible with prior notice and two of the cottages can be used as family suites, with connecting rooms.
Breakfast consists of cereal, a selection of seasonal fruits, tea and coffee are on the buffet table. A waitperson will take your order for eggs, bacon and sausage. If you’d like to try some of our local porridge, just let us know. The famous buffet lunch is served daily and once a week we feature African specialities. If you’ll be out on safari for lunchtime, you’ll depart with a specially prepared lunch box. Dinner is served at the table. This is a five-course event starting with a starter followed by soup. You’ll then enjoy your main course, which could be pork medallions, roast chicken, beef fillet etc. accompanied by potatoes and at least two fresh vegetables. A fresh garden salad comes next followed by dessert with tea or coffee. Vegetarian entrées are prepared on request.
The Bougainvillea Safari Lodge is located near to some of the most amazing wildlife areas on the planet. The gate to the World Heritage Ngorongoro Conservation Area is about a 15-minute drive from the lodge. To the east and south lies Lake Manyara National Park, a jewel of a park lying on the floor of the Great Rift Valley. Both areas are equally accessible for day trips. Other activities in and around the property include bird watching, a variety of cultural tours, hiking, walking tours, a variety of spa / massage treatments, swimming and much more.
