The Plantation Lodge is located a short drive from the Ngorongoro Crater. It is a haven of shades and hues, as green, violet, ivory and rust mingle to frame the tranquil setting. With 16 delicately arranged rooms and suites, one will be thoroughly delighted by the magical aura of the Plantation Lodge. Relax at dinner, where you will be served the most succulent of fruits and vegetables, produced right there in the garden. Keeping with the times, dining is a more elegant scenario, where one is served in courses. Step into the swimming pool, go for a walk, or head out to one of the nearby farms for a window into this wonderful region.
Like a green oasis, Plantation Lodge rests on the soft, red-brown hills amidst the vastness and silence of East Africa. 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. 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, a short hop from the Tarangire and Lake Manyara national parks, and just a short journey from the Serengeti.
To stay at Plantation Lodge is to immerse yourself in a world of rest and relaxation. The lodge’s 16 rooms lie generously distributed throughout the flowering garden, some with verandas and direct access to the garden. Individuality is a major feature of Plantation Lodge, where each room has its own style, choice accessories and bouquets of fresh flowers from the garden that put the cherry on the cake. The lodge’s room-maids care conscientiously for the rooms and are happy to see to our guests’ needs.
Jacaranda Suite... also known as the Honeymoon Suite, lies somewhat apart from the other rooms. The views from here are particularly lovely: The windows in the fireplace room and in the bedroom offer spectacular views of the garden. The modern, very tastefully designed bathroom is highly inviting. Right next to the entrance is the terrace, a nice quiet spot for reading, writing postcards and relaxing amid glorious nature.
Kent and Blue Mountain – each of these suites is a work of art. Stylish and comfortable. The fireplace room has access to the shared terrace and to the garden, the airy bedroom with its veranda and two sunbeds, the spacious bathroom ... With attention to detail and a sure feeling for the successful composition of furniture and accessories here are two truly beautiful suites waiting for guests to come and feel good in them.
The Zanzibar Suite takes you into the world of A Thousand and One Nights.

Ideal for families with children aged up to 15 years: Bamboo offers two bedrooms that are separated from one another by a hallway and a bathroom. The practical, segmented layout makes for privacy. The children’s bedroom is furnished with two single beds. Folding doors lead from both bedrooms to the idyllic inner quad that incorporates a seating nook.
Oleander and bougainvillea line the path to the farm house. The free-standing house with a surrounding garden is ideal for families or two couples. The two generous, bright bedrooms offer plenty of space and each has its own bathroom. The center of the house is the living room where a dining area, two sofas and a fire place combine to create a cozy atmosphere.
The Garden House offers plenty of room in four double bedrooms and in the rest of the house. Families and groups of friends can enjoy loads of room here in this two-story house. It features an upper fireplace room with lounge seating. The stairs lead down into the heart of the house and the spacious dining room has an impressive table. Not only is the house’s interior highly pleasing, the wooden veranda also offers spectacular views of the picturesque hills, and it’s the best place to sit and sip a sundowner.
Fresh variety is the motto of the highly trained kitchen staff. Freshly grown vegetables are used for salads, herbs and fruit. This means that the products from the kitchen are healthy, untreated and particularly tasty. In the restaurant the staff pampers each guest every evening with a fine multicourse meal in a stylish, comfortable atmosphere. A good wine from the cellar rounds off the culinary pleasure.
At lunchtime you can enjoy dishes al fresco. We’ll be happy to serve you lunch or afternoon coffee and cake at one of the garden tables.
Stop by for a chat, relax, meet new people – the bar is a social hub. That freshly mixed cocktail tastes just as good served on the sweeping bar top as it does savored on the terrace that overlooks panoramic vistas. Whether indoors or out, whether apéritif or post-meal digestif, here pleasure is guaranteed no matter what. On balmy evenings, people gravitate towards the wooden veranda, enjoying the sunset-bathed view of the expansive landscape.
Whether you just want to laze around or you want to refresh yourself after a dusty game drive – the pool with its view of the picturesque hills is the ideal place for a break. You can relax luxuriously on one of the comfortable sunbeds. Read, swim, dream – time will just fly. And when the sun sinks blood red behind Mount Oldeani, this is the most romantic place for a sundowner.
Relax luxuriously with a massage and feel newborn afterwards. Make an appointment with a qualified masseuse and spoil yourself.
