Africa Safari Karatu is a luxury safari lodge located on the edge of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The area became popular with early settlers and farmers because of its cool climate, green hills and beautiful views, with coffee being one of the most important crops. The rolling slopes of the extinct Ol Deani volcano are a striking feature of the landscape. The accommodation is located on top of a hill and offers a stunning view of the Northern Highlands, Lake Eyasi and its surroundings.

Due to the ideal location of Africa Safari Karatu, Lake Manyara National Park and the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater are easily accessible. Africa Safari Karatu has two types of Bungalow Rooms, the Safari Comfort Bungalows and Safari Luxury Bungalows, whereas the Safari Luxury Bungalow is 10 square metres bigger than the Safari Comfort Bungalow and has a comfortable sofa in the seating area.

Best place to begin or close your safari!

We had a lovely stay in this resort! The view was amazing! It was the last night of our safari and it was the best! It was our 6th anniversary and they made a lovely cake for us and sang with the whole team for us! Our waiter Joseph was so kind and did everything for us. We are coming back, that is for sure!
