Plantation Lodge Location Map

The Plantation Lodge is located on landscaped grounds spanning a total of 10 hectares, just 12 km from the entrance to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and 35 km from Lake Manyara National Park.

After an exciting day on safari, there are many ways of seeing out the day in a relaxed manner here - lounging by the pool, indulging in a massage, going for a walk in the garden or enjoying a sundowner on the bar’s terrace.

Fresh variety is the motto of the kitchen. The lodge grows their own vegetables, salads, herbs and fruit, and the restaurant pampers guests every evening with a fine multi-course meal in a stylish, comfortable atmosphere. A good wine from the cellar rounds off the culinary pleasure.

All rooms and suites within this owner-run lodge have been furnished with great attention to detail.

The 15 Standard Rooms are set amongst the flowering gardens, and many have verandas. Individuality is a major feature of Plantation Lodge, and each room has its own style, and bouquets of fresh flowers from the garden set decorative accents. There are also 7 stylish and comfortable Suites.

For families, the Family Farm House Suite has 2 generous en-suite bedrooms, and in the centre of the house is a living and dining room, and a cosy fireplace.
