Right up against Ngorongoro Conservation Area, this unpretentious hilltop lodge has 15 large tents (two are family sized) with forest or valley views, the latter offering a peek at Lake Manyara and even Mt Meru and Mt Kilimanjaro on a clear day. Good meals are served under the big thatched roof. It’s 10km northeast of Karatu, well signposted off the highway.
Cultural tours and nature walks are available, and rates include a 20% donation to the school-orphanage the owners (two Dutch doctors who live on site) opened nearby.
