Karatu Simba Lodge Location Map

Situated deep in the farming area of the Karatu district and nestled right alongside the Ngorongoro Forest, Karatu Simba Lodge is located about a 30 minute drive from the gate of Lake Manyara National Park, and approximately 4 km off the main road to the entry of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area with its breathtaking volcanic crater. It is therefore an ideal base to explore both these iconic safari destinations.

The main building has an open atrium, a lounge and dining area, plus there is also complimentary Wi-Fi.

After a dusty day on safari, take a swim in the pool with its views over fields and forest, then soak up the sun on the deck. Huddle around the campfire at nightfall and see the Southern Cross suspended in the sky over the distant Mbulu Hills. Or fall asleep lulled by the call of the bush baby and Montane nightjar.

Accommodation is in cottages or rondavels, with canvas walls and an en-suite bathroom. Each room is simply decorated with local fabrics and hand-made furniture made out of African hardwood. All rooms have a view to the forest, fields and far distant hills.

Each room has its own deck with safari chairs for watching the world go by - perhaps a troop of baboons foraging in the barley fields, local herdsmen tending their flocks, exotic birds flitting amongst the trees or a bullock cart trundling by in the distance with its cargo of water.

Karatu Simba Lodge Location


General Information For Guests

All rooms are en-suite with a shower and mosquito nets over the bed. Full amenities are provided and the rooms are solar powered with solar heated water and a power strip for battery charging.

Each room has a torch/flashlight and umbrella for guests to use. A whistle is also provided in case guests need to alert a security guard.

Due to the solar electrical system, it is not possible to use a hair dryer at the lodge - the lodge asks that guests do not try to plug in a hair dryer as in all likelihood it will blow the entire system resulting in a loss of power to the entire lodge.

As the solar lighting may be dimmer, guests are advised to bring a headlamp or 'book light' for reading at night.

There is a pool and sundeck.

There is complimentary Wi-Fi in the main guest areas.

There is no wheelchair access at the lodge.
