The lodge has a great location on the lower slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater and is only 45 minute drive from Lake Manyara Airfield. Moreover, the superb standards of accommodation and excellent cuisine make it a popular choice.
Accommodation is in individual houses or chalets set amongst the shady gardens, each one is decorated in its own style. There are 15 standard rooms and 7 suites. Families are well catered for in either a Family Suite or Family Unit, each comprising two bedrooms. Each has a veranda or terrace with a view of the gardens. With this variety in accommodation, Plantation Lodge has something to suit everyone from families to honeymooners.
Plantation Lodge also offers a generously sized swimming pool and surrounding terraces, with streams, lovely trees and luxuriant plants to frame it. The lodge grounds is a great place to sit and take in the views over the surrounding farmland. Its location in Ngorongoro is excellent for bird-spotting, with some 300 species of birds.
Although the gardens are a gorgeous setting for the lodge, they play a central role in the providing fresh ingredients including vegetables, salads, herbs and fruit for their cuisine. The beautiful flowers you’ll see in and around the rooms of Plantation Lodge are also sourced from the gardens.
