The Plantation Lodge

Explore Tanzania

Set in almost 3 hectares of land, Plantation Lodge is surrounded by coffee plantations and a working farm, just outside of the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. The lodge is conveniently placed, with the Lake Manyara and Tarangire national parks both nearby, so there is a very wide scope of game and scenery to take in. The lodge is owner run and comprised of staff from the local area, offering friendly service and an intimate atmosphere.

The general decor of Plantation Lodge echoes a distinctive colonial style, with 16 nicely furnished standard rooms, 7 suites, a family unit and the Garden House. The standard rooms are scattered amongst pretty gardens and all vary slightly in style. All standard rooms provide mosquito nets over beds and en-suite bathrooms. The Garden House is well suited to larger parties, while the suites have something for everybody, with the Jacaranda Suite perfect for honeymooners and the Zanzibar Suite emanating the island's distinguishing chic.

To please healthy eaters, the lodge produces its own tasty produce, from fresh fruit and salads to vegetables, thus ensuring meals served up from the kitchen are exceptionally tasty. A dining area and lounge form the main area of the lodge, with traditional high ceilings and tiled flooring and an inviting swimming pool provides an excuse to relax.
