Property Description

Closer to Ngorongoro and Serengeti National Parks you wont get it! We are located just out of Karatu, with perfect views of the surroundings, proper rooms and a relaxed atmosphere - all at a very affordable rate. For a safari, volunteering opportunity or just to relax; we make it happen!

We offer singles & doubles for those seeking some privacy and dorms for those on a smaller budget. Our common room is excellent for relaxing, with a bar and a large outdoor terrace from which you can enjoy lovely views. Breakfast included!

Ngorongoro & Serengeti NPs couldn't be closer, and we are happy to help organizing your safari. If your safari has already been booked and you are just looking for a place to stay, we are your perfect hang out after an exciting day of game spotting.

If you want to make a real contribution to the Karatu community, you may be interested in our volunteer programmes. We offer a range of projects, from teaching English to working on womens empowerment. Please contact us for more information!

We aim to minimize our ecological footprint. We run on (reliable!) solar power, organise responsible safaris, get our veggies from the market and pay fair rates to our staff. Staying with us means helping preserve Africas nature and contributing to the community!

Superb

This place is great! It’s in a good location for seeing Tarangire, Manyara and Ngorongoro if you want to do day trips. It’s a little outside of town but you can easily walk. The staff was super super nice and welcoming. The rooms are really nice and clean - we each had our own bathroom (western toilet, hot shower). They made breakfast for us every morning for no extra charge - an omelette with toast, cucumber, roasted tomato and banana + tea/coffee. No WiFi but we got a hotspot from staff.

The website advertisement for the property was dishonest. There was no electricity or running water (hot or cold). There was no TV or wi-fi as advertised. There was no option for drinks or food other than a basic breakfast, so guests would need to travel back to town by taxi for meals. The bed was clean but uncomfortable. I had booked for 2 nights, but cancelled the second night, because the accommodation was simply unsatisfactory and the advertised price of $70 per night was unrealistic.
