Plantation Lodge

Like a green oasis, the Plantation Lodge rests on the soft, red-brown hills amidst the vastness and silence of East Africa. The 16 individually furnished rooms and suites melting harmoniously into the flowering garden offer comfort and relaxation. One will be thoroughly delighted by the magical aura of the Plantation Lodge. 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. 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.


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.
